You have a lot to deal with, I can speak from experience with what you are dealing with. I too was diagnosed in 2007 and have a young child.

The good news is that the issue of HIV is not the end of the world nor is it your problem. Its the lingering effect of prior sins. Sins which most all of us deal with (so your not alone). Its what you choose to do now that will change things in the future.

The best advice to give you would to turn the burden of this disease including your past infidelities over to God, ask for forgiveness and get right with your relationship with Him first.

Once this occurs the changes in your life habits and frankly who you are will be a testimony to your family about the great person you can be.

With regards to your wife, remember that sexual infidelity takes time to heal, trust has been broken and consistant God like behavior will change her perspective. I know I had to do it myself.

With regards to your children. Why do you feel that you have to tell them? Ask yourself is it to make yourself feel better or them. The burden of HIV has many negative consequeses for exhisitng family members that frankly dont need to be burdened with that problem.

I have made the choice to insulate my daughter from my consequenses. i do this by taking care of myself, exercising eating right and seeking the best medical care that i can afford. For all practical purposes I am healthly and she has no need to know about a few poor choices I made a long time ago.

I hope this helps and I will be praying for you and your family.

God bless.
