nope, you're not alone. i'm a mental health professional in the Seattle area providing direct clinical services in the gay community, many members of which have HIV. it can be a bit sometimes being a person with HIV providing services to others with it. at work everyone knows my status and are very supportive. there's a period of adjustment and fear, but silence still = death...
