Trying to heal from being hurt so badly
      02/25/06 08:02 PM

I went to visit my husband in treatment today and it is amazing how much better he looks. He obviously is getting healthier and is going to be around for years more. I am very happy about that. we talked about what had happened and he said he had never accepted being positive. He just hadn't realized it fully. I told him I can, will forgive him, and I can not accept the drug use. He said he is willing to stay in treatment for as long as it takes to get more stable. I think we can have another chance together. I'm not certain how my family will accept it, I think that is going to be very difficult. The addicts in my family understand more than my non-addicts. I have some fear the coldness of them will push him back out to dope.

One of my sisters is so afraid of hiv that she doesn't want to come to my home, and some people have said I will come visit you but I will not use your bathroom. Ignorant I know. I have tried to educate them and they do not want to listen. Some of the reaction is anger that he wasn't honest with me. That is understandable but actually their non-acceptance is making it more difficult for me. how can i go to holiday functions? How do I tell him they are feeling this way?
