What Do I Do Now?
      12/29/04 09:40 PM

I was recently diagnosed in October with HIV. I am almost sure I was infected some time ago as I was not tested regularly. I never led much of an active gay sexual life (not an angel by any means, but no sex pig either) as I was married to a woman until 7 years ago. My first and only gay partner was not exclusive to me sexually (to put it nicely) and that led me to lose much faith and hope for a happy gay life. I was able to get past that just this year and allow myself to open my heart again. As you can imagine, this has put quite a damper on those plans. For one thing, my sex drive has dropped drastically as I live in fear of infecting someone else. The feelings of gulit I have that I may have done so already are also overwhelming for me. Long story short, what I am looking for is some others to share my feelings, frustrations, and anxieties with; however I have no idea where to look for help with this. I am hoping that there is someone out there who is reading this that can help me find some support in the Baltimore/Washington area. I have many friends who I love, but they have no idea what I am going through. If you can please help.

Lonely and confused in Baltimore
