What to expect - want to quit my job - should I?
      07/28/06 07:17 AM

Hello, I am the wife of a hiv+ husband. We are both the breadwinners in the family of four kids. He was diagnosed three years ago and is not on meds, his cd4 is around 320 and viral load around 50k to 80k. We are planning on buying a bigger house, larger mortgage for the kids and us and me to quit my job and stay home with them. So, the finances will lay entirely on my husband. He has a large high paying traveling sales job. I have been told he can live a normal life, but I am still nervous to put everything on him. Will he still be able to lead such a hectic job when he starts meds? Will he be able to do this until the kids are grown and put them thru college? they are all under 10. We are in are mid thirties. I need some guidance in this area. It is just to hard for me to work with 4 kids that have a million activities etc and need me at home to guide them.... but I am scared. If i step out of the job market now for an extended period of time, I will not be able to pick up where I left off with such an absence in my field.. Thanks
