Boyfriend just tested +
      11/13/09 04:12 AM

Last week, my boyfriend went to the doctor because he had a jock itch infection for months that he just couldn't get rid of. They got his lab work back & he had a low wbc count, elevated liver enzymes, & protein in his urine. The doctor did an HIV test, & the doctor called today & said he wanted my boyfriend to come in tomorrow. My boyfriend took a rapid Home Access test yesterday just to make sure, & he found out today the results are positive. We have been together for 5 years having unprotected sex, so I'm pretty sure I'm positive. I'm going with him tomorrow to the doctor to get tested. I'm female, btw.

I just don't know what we do now. This doesn't seem real. Are we going to die? Can we have children? Will the drugs make us sick? Can we still work? What he if has full blown aids already? Will he die? I don't want to lose him & I don't want to die young! I manage apts. & I clean empty apts. Do I need to stop? Will I get sick? Will we be able to afford the meds? Will they make us sick & unable to work? I don't know what to do!!! His parents know, they're here with us now, but none of my family knows. I don't know if I should tell them. I don't know how to tell them. He's in nursing school. Can he not be a nurse now? Are our lives over? Am I being punished because I don't believe in God? This wasn't supposed to happen to us! We were going to get married & have children. What about sex? Can we not have it anymore? Have we been superinfecting each other the entire time? I don't want to die! I don't want him to die!

I just want someone to tell me that everything is going to be okay.
