it's a shame your mother and grandmother can't be more supportive. can you tell us where you're from? there's still so much stigma and shame attached to HIV. but you are not alone. I'm assuming that your family is relatively uninformed about HIV. My advice to you is to educate yourself as much as you can about HIV, so that you can teach others who may be frightened by your status. This is the best way to fight stigma, so that they know there's nothing to be afraid of and so that you know there's nothing to be ashamed of!

This is a great article about disclosure that Vanessa Johnson wrote. Have a look!
