Re: How do YOU do it?

The stress around disclosure is very difficult for a lot of people. Once you tell someone, you have lost control of who will and can find out. It took my partner weeks before he could tell me and when he did the first words out of his mouth were "I have something difficult to tell you and there door is over there and if you walk out I will understand....
Well 12 years later I am still there and have NEVER been happier.

He had been rejected so many times he was use to people just walking out. Since that night I have become educated and I do training with people of high risk. There is a program that a lot of agencies do called "Healthy Relsationships" it deals with the stress around disclosure to friends and family, sexual partner, and if you can't disclose it also offers safe sex pratices. You can try to find where and when the next series of the intervention will be. It is usually 5 - 2 hour sessions. If you have any problems finding a group, feel free to contact me and I will try to find out waht agencies in your area have been trained.

Good Luck-
