Re: Support for professional women diagnosed with HIV
      05/29/05 03:43 PM

I found out a year and a half ago, I was so scared about loosing my job, becoming unemployed and not making enough money to support myself or daughter. I understand how you feel about being the odd person out in support groups, I feel the same way when I go. I have been a professional for 7 years and have had none of the big risk factors. In the last few months, I disclosed to my boss(mainly because of increased sick days as I ajusted to the meds) and she has been very supportive. I thought my family would have been disapointed, but they surprised me and it has actually brought us closer. It is scary and your allowed to feel scared. I am sure all of us have at the beginning and even from now and then. I wish you the best of luck and if you need to chat privately, let me know, we all need as much positive support that we can get.
Keep your head up and know that it will get better and you can keep working as long as you want to keep working, this disease doesn't define you or rule you only you rule you.
Take care
