I can understand how you feel,I'm an LPN who went through yearly training on bloodbourne pathogens including HIV/AIDS and always stressed to my kids that they should use condoms every time they had sex,even made sure I had them in the house for my kids and any of their friends that needed them.Guess who is the only one of us to get HIV? Yeah I felt like a real idiot with all my preaching and I was the one not using condoms.
I found out in April '04 so I've had time to come to terms with it,you will too.Give yourself time and remember to breathe.Learn everything you can about this disease,cause learning about it during an in-service and learning about it because you have it are two very different things.
