Family and Friends >> My Loved One Has HIV/AIDS


My father had AIDS...
      09/16/06 03:25 PM

I know that this forum is for people currently dealing with the effects of AIDS in their lives, but I am struggling with my father's death.

My father died 15 years ago, when I was 5. He was diagnosed with AIDS when I was 2. He apparently contracted it while using IV drugs before I was born. Luckily, my mom and I were both HIV negative. However, I am still struggling to understand why this happened to my family, and I am finding it hard to find any sort of support for children in the US who have lost parents to this disease. So, I am writing to see if ya'll know of any groups out there and also to remind parents how hard this disease is on children, even when only one parent is affected. My mother hid what happened to my dad from me for 10 years, do not make the same mistake!
