The most difficult part for me was telling my three teen-aged children, after my ex-wife began using this info to threaten me. Since all three were different ages, I met with them separately and gave them an overview about HIV. The majority of my time was spent telling them what I needed to do in order to stay healthy. This included keeping my stress level down. Unnecessary stress would keep me from helping them grow into adulthood, watching them get married and holding the grandchildren that they would someday give me.

Now a days, we rarely (if ever) talk about my hiv. They spend time focusing on my staying healthy and keeping stress down, especially stress that stems from their mother. What my ex intended to use to hurt me, ended up being one of the best things that could have happened.
