Mom of 5.....

Im not really sure how or where to start...I was diagnosed yesterday. I have not received any of my "counts" back yet (That will be Monday) but I was informed that I am in fact HIV+. I have two lymph nodes removed a month ago thinking I have cancer and when those tests came back benign they started testing EVERYTHING and come to find out.....well im +. It wasnt what I was expecting and I actually had no idea that an HIV test was one of the blood tests they were running so I was completely blindsided. I feel so broken. I really never thought about this as a possibility. Not to pass any judgement (but show my own ignorance) I thought because I wasnt an IV drug user or promiscuous it wouldnt happen to me. Ive read so many stories that are quiet the opposite, moms, wives, grandmothers, fathers.....people like me. I just dont know where to begin. I've already changed my thinking in less than 24 hours but now what. I cant breathe at times, I start crying thinking of my kids (putting my 5 year old twins on the bus was torture today) I just dont know how Im ever going to make it.......I didnt have kids to lay in bed and die. Ive always been an active mother (my oldest being 14) and this has knocked me on my a**. Now what?? And does anyone suffer from pain? Ive felt like ive been hit by a bus......
