I need some help understanding!
      02/16/09 09:43 AM

I received a call from my ex-husband/best friend saturday that he is HIV positive. He has been positive for about six months and has been afraid to tell me. I have been crying non-stop, we have three beautiful children 18, 17 and 15, the 17 year old knows, but the other two do not. Now that I have given some background here is my questions...my ex is living a lifestyle that I feel is horrible for this illness, he told me that has lost over 50 lbs already, has a skin rash and mouth thrush, he also said that he is having an unrelated heart condition. When he called me it was from a bar, he was drunk and crying because he was "hit on" by a cute guy and the guy offered to take him home and my ex was upset that he could no longer have ramdon encounters. everything i have read so far talks about life expectancy and health concerns for people who are proactive in taking care of themselves, he told me that his levels are in a good range and that he is going to a doctor, and that he does not need medications. but what factors is his bar hopping and late night life habits going to contribute to his health? I really want someone to help me understand so that I can be a support for him and my children.
