Has anyone experience any issues with their Relationship after being Diagnoised?

My partner (he's Negative, btw) and I are going on our 25th year, but things have changed between us since my diagnosis in 2013.

After several doctor visits throughout 2012 and 2013 came my diagnosis. At the time, he was very supportive of me. We are… read more

From your post, doesn't sound like HIV is the real issue. Would be nice to blame it, but sounds much deeper.

I posted 6 months ago about difficulties similar to yours that my spouse and I were going through. As an update, we filed for divorce yesterday. The experiences leading up to it were filled with fear, unhapppiness and loss of self worth. We went to the Courthouse together and were able to file while remaining friends. After over 8 years together, we still have posessions to sort through. Fortunately, we are not filled with hatred. We only want each other to move on with our lives seperately, but happy. I am definitely in a much better place mentally. I hope you have found answers you are looking for.

I have been careful to only try relationships with other poz men.Since I got dosed as a result of rape, I will never put someone through this. That would be insanity. When Prince Charming did arrive, it only would work if he was HIV+. Now we are married very happily and life without him would be unimaginable. Because of my work in the 80s with AIDS Patients, it would never work,at least with me, as a sero different couple. PS,I have not experienced a moment of self denial about life. I was raised to look on the page in front of me, and not behind or ahead,it made it easier to accept the facts of my life.
