My younger sister had told me yesterday that she tested positive..... She's known for over a year now as well as my mom n dad. She didn't tell me bc she was afraid I wasn't going to let her see my son who was born 2 months after her diagnosis. My son is now 13 months old.... I hate to sound self centered but I'm so angry she kept this from me for so long and thought that I would keep my boy from her. I feel so sad and scared and confused. I know she doesn't want my pitty but I feel awful for her I feel like I'm greaving a huge loss!!!! The only time I remember learning about HIV/aids was in middle school health class and from what I hear things have changed since then. I immediately thought she was ganja die when she told me this.from what I know now she actually has aids.... Her tcells were below 200 the first time she was tested and have never been above but she has no opportunistic infections... I really don't know what I'm expecting out of writing on here.... Maybe hope or understanding? Any and all responses are welcome thank you
