Husband just diagnosed with AIDS
      05/05/06 05:08 PM

My husband of 13 years has just been diagnosed with AIDS... we skipped the HIV+ part and went right to full-blown AIDS. I am scared and angry at the same time. He has battled oral thrush for over a year now and his first doctor never suggested an HIV test, just kept treating the thrush. I didn't know repeated oral thrush was a sign of HIV even though I had researched oral thrush on the internet. I throught it was due to Candida, so we started treating that. He just kept getting thinner and sicker. Finally he went to another doctor and he ordered an HIV test. My husband is anemic, his bone marrow is only producing 4% of the blood cells it should, he is having stomach pains. Now we find out he's been in the AIDS stage for over a year. I never knew he had been unfaithful to me the whole time we'd been married. The first 8 years of our marriage he was a practicing alcoholic and says it happened 9 years ago. Not only with a couple of women, but also with one man. He's been sober for 5 years. We are both Christians. I am having a hard time dealing with all this... now I have to be tested also. I don't know anything about CD4 counts or viral counts or whatever... yet. Go back to see the infectious diseases doc in 2 weeks for his med recommendation. I love my husband, but right now I want to wring his neck. Also, I hate having to lie to people about his condition because so many people have been praying for him. He only wants to tell family and very close friends. Jesus, help me!
