Sucks to hear that your boyfriend betrayed you, but having HIV is not the end of the world. I know it sounds cliche....but it is true. I found out I was HIV positive three days before I started my first nursing job. I had already graduated nursing and was so happy to have my life ahead of me with a career that paid decently. Finding out I had HIV destroyed that moment for me. But now, it is just an annoyance, been working as a nurse for 5 years and enjoying my career and my life. So do your schooling and enjoy your life.
As for your relationship, that is another matter. You have to decide what you want to do about that. I got HIV because I cheated on my boyfriend one drunken night (condom not used properly). He has stayed with me throughout the process and I haven't cheated again, I learned my lesson, huge consequence, he is HIV negative, always practice safe sex now (however your situation is different).

It still is possible to have children and a family and live a good life. Speak to a counsellor and get as much information about HIV as you can. It may seem like the end of the world but it is not. My life thus far has been great, I don't know what lies ahead, but HIV or not - one never knows what lies ahead.

For me HIV has helped me eat healthy, stay fit, travel, try to fit everything into my life, live every day as it were my last (it has improved my friendships and relationships with family.
