when and how to tell my teen kids
      06/04/11 11:02 AM

Hi, I am a white str8 male, married but in a major crisis since diagnosed in 2007, and am currently working on scenario on when and how to tell my kids. Wife (negative) has known -of course- since beginning but what are the considerations and possible reactions of a 19 yo daughter (at college (med school)), 17 yo son (first year college) and 15 yo son at highschool. All three still living at home. Wife and I no longer share bedroom because of marriage crisis, HIV was an additional burden on the cheating on my part and the disappointments and hurting on my wife's side. Feeling very sorry, have done a lot to reconquer her but an action plan for HIV disclosure to kids is needed to finalize the crisis. Any hints ? I have seen a few shrinks to get over this and am fully in control of my HIV - I consider it almost as a non issue (what else can I do, life goes on). I have a good position at work and no one else but wife and med staff know about this HIV. Would wanna keep it that way as a protection against stigma, discrimination, etc. Would like to hear your experiences (we live a liong way from our parents and brothers and sisters). Francis
