My Dad has HIV and I need some resources to help us both psychologically..
      02/19/13 04:07 AM

About 3 years ago my mom presented to my brother and I the possibility that my dad was cheating on her and doing crack as well.. We staged an intervention within the immediate family (just the 4 of us) to confront his drug problem and found out alot more than we bargained for. He admitted to us he had been HIV positive since 2000. It was just shocking. Even though I am 34, my brother is 26 and we both are much more spiritually evolved than many, it has been a major life changing event and it's been nothing but a major whirlwind of a rollercoaster ever since. Between my dad's drug and sex problems to his mental state detieriating, I see that this is out of my hands and not only does my dad need to come to terms with this (he has asked us not to tell anyone) but I need help coping and understanding how I can help him as well. My dad has always been my hero and I feel the shame and pain as if his is my own sometimes. I am daddy's lil girl and while I feel everyone is turning their back on him, I can't do that. But.. I also need to set boundaries. Please.. If anyone knows a support group in the San Diego area that might be able to help us. Or even, just somewhere I can talk to someone about this.. It's starting to take a toll on everything in my life...Help
