You know....your right. Its the "oh my God" , ness of it why I want to tell her. It is probably best that I don't. I have talked to my husband about it (in the past), basically the "what if" she finds out. But then as time went on and I got to know her, I was more aware of what she didn't know....and thought it would be best if I didn't tell her. But its the part of it that eats me up.....that I have to keep this WALL because I know I would not be accepted anymore. and I worry about my kids future, what if something happened to me (& my husband)..I do not want my kids raised in a home like that. (although I'm glad I've had that talk w/ my husband and he agrees that the kids should go with my sister).
Your right....its the humor of it that I want her to know. it was people like her that I was always so open about my status, because I loved the SHOCK it gave them...people like her always expect they know what people with hiv look like. But I also know that when my baby is old enough to understand mommy has a germ (is how I explained it when my older son was 3), that lives in her blood. and it will not be something I expect he not say anything. Thanks for your help monch..
...I know what is right in the situation, but I'm just tired of living as though I am hiding or ashamed of this. thats how it is making me feel.
Love and prayers to you all.
