boyfriend +, I'm - as of now. how to be supportive
      01/19/11 08:04 PM

Hi again,
So my boyfriend tested positive January 4, I tested negative November 23, with one exposure date on Nov. 5 and the last before that Sept. 10 (easy to know dates due to our LDR). When he told me about his results I was (and am) 100% supportive. Any time he's gotten down about this I've lifted him up and been there for him. I'm waiting to test again on or shortly after February 5 to give myself the full three months since my last exposure. What I'm worried about is how to be strong and supportive of him despite my feelings. So far I've been able to, but let's say I test positive. I don't want to be a hypocrite and vent too much on him or get too down about it around him after I've had such a positive outlook on this for him. After reading many of these posts, I do feel that if I test positive, I'll have the strength to get through this as others have before me, but I also don't know what my initial reaction will be. I really might break down and I don't want him to see that. Has anyone been through this or does anyone have any advice on how to handle this?
