I started Atripla yesterday and my first day wasn't too bad. A little dizzy and queezy but it subsided. Hopefully the next days and weeks will be the same or better. I took my pill right at bedtime on a empty stomach. I was a little dizzy and foggy around 3 when i awoke to go to the bathroom but i was ok when i woke up in the morning.

Regarding your other concerns, right now the most important concern is your health. If you partner truly loves you, he will be there. Just be prepared for any response just in case. I can definitely identify with you on disclosure and your concerns as I faced them immediately when I was diagnosed in Sept 2009. I had a very traumatic first year and it definitely impacted my lab results and now I am on meds. Stress will definitely impact your health so make sure you take care of yourself and keep focused. Keep the faith and be strong...things will get better.
