Carl

I want you to know that I have walked a similar path. My partner was diagnosed with KS in 1995. At that same time I tested positive. I became his primary care giver for the next 6 years of his life. Thankfully he met the challenge head on. I hope for you that you find time for yourself. That is how I approached things -- but not just as a caregiver, also as someone who has HIV. One thing that caregivers fail to do -- is take care of themselves. Always try to find time to step away (wherever or whatever that may be) -- all of life worries (health, work, family - George Bush) will be there when you come back. I hope that you partner has more good days than bad. I see you appreciate and love him and I'm sure he knows it as well. All my very best to you and him.
