need courage
      02/13/12 11:39 PM

Hello, I am a 40 yr old strt female who was diagnosed 6 months ago, and although I feel that I have come to terms with things, feel my life is getting smaller every week. I have not started treatment yet, and live in a small town where the worst thing that could happen, is that my status gets found out.
My kids do not know, and I couldn't bear the thought of them being bullied if every one knew.
I am lucky enough to have a hiv support group in my town but am terrified to go there in case anyone finds out. Although I am hideously shy and would have to build all my courage up to ask for support, my main concern would be for my kids having to live with the stigma.
I would love for someone just to hold my hand through this, just give me the courage to step forward. i know I sound selfish but I am a sensitive lady and I know I have so much support to give, My world is shrinking and my kids deserve so much more.
