that sucks dad. you seem to have a good spirit though, so that will certainly be helpful. make sure you get a good infectious disease doctor who you trust and with whom you can talk candidly about your situation. it's probably best if you don't tell your ex-wife and kids until you get a handle on this thing...and then only tell them when you're ready.
i hope to get married and have kids one day, even if it means adopting but the way i see it, i'll likely never date again for the rest of my life. oh well.
