How long has it been since your diagnosis? You are exhibiting some clear signs of distress. Properly treated, you'll be just fine. Talk to your HIV doctor right away. There are many options to explore; counseling, support groups, even medication. You don't have to live like this.

For many, this forum is the first step seeking help. It's a great place to realize you aren't alone. Let me just say, I get it. HIV really does suck. There are a lot of things in life that suck. If the world just fixated on what sucked, we'd probably still be sitting around the fire complaining about the cave draft.

Look, we can either let adversity crush us into dust or we can use it to our advantage. HIV has a way of making us see the world differently than we did before. This change in perspective can lead to something more meaningful and wonderful. It would be insanity for anyone to seek out hardship but remember, what doesn't kill us makes us stronger. So if we have to be here, might as well do something constructive with our time, right?

CALL YOUR DOCTOR! Tell them exactly what you are feeling. Trust me! They know your long term success is dependent on you getting beyond these feelings. They'll hook you up with the help you need. Then you can get down to the business of being the great husband your wife obviously wants you to be. *wicked grin*
