My partner is having a tough time
      06/30/08 12:07 AM

hello everyone

My partner is positive and has been struggling for some time with depression and stress. He learned he was positive early in our relationship, and although it has been challenging at times, we love each other very much. I am not positive, and frequently get tested.

The thing is, he does not believe in HIV meds. For a few years after his test results, he refused to seek any sort of medical treatment. I have basically begged him to talk to any medical professional, and only this year did he do so. He still does not want to take any meds, and talks about taking a strictly holistic approach.

We have been seeing a couples counselor on and off for the last 2 years, and through that I have come to the understanding that I will respect his choices and encourage whatever course he decides.

I guess I'm reaching out tonight, to those who are fighting this themselves or to those who support their loved ones living with HIV. I would like to help my partner anyway I can. I love him, and being positive can't change that.

Thank you all,
KD
