I have been with my husband going on 11 years. He has AIDS. "In the blink of an eye" will be a catchphrase you use quite often. Yes, find support groups (I personally have never done that just because his doc and mine feel I am handling it well, to each his own), keep up with his health by going to appointments with him. Will the future be comfortable and healthy? No. As simple as that. You are going to have some days that scare the living hell out of you. You will also have MANY days that feel like heaven on Earth. I am negative by the way. Get tested every six months while in this relationship. Make sure you laugh often, you never know when that moment comes that the laughter will stop momentarily. Hospital stays...make them memorable and as fun as can be. A hint to get the nurses to treat you like gold, (especially if he is a repeat visitor to that hospital) when it is time to go home (and if you have the money)buy cookies and stuff like that with a thank you card. EVERYONE remembers my husband and caters to him when he is in. We now just bring the goodies with us and give it to them during our stay. I stay with him the whole time he is in. The biggest thing I can tell you...when things are good take a long deep breath and enjoy it...if this is truly what you want to do then do it with your whole heart. If you can't put your whole heart into it walk away before you break his heart. He will know you are not 100% invested. I wish the both of you luck and you are in my thoughts.

Never forget: Life is too precious to take for granted.
