Hi Giveup I am saddened to hear of you dilemma but be assured you are going through a natural reaction to some very traumatic news. There will be a number of stages you will go through. This is as much about grieving as is losing a loved one. Take comfort that all is not lost and that you have many people here at the forum that will help you through this.
HIV is a chronic infection and is in much the same category as diabetes as far as treatment goes. It is a treatable infection and can be managed successfully. Please feel free to mail me or drop me a line if you would like to unload on someone. I am only too happy to help you if I can. Regard and best wishes
