Has Anyone Experience Any Issues With Their Relationship After Being Diagnoised?
A myHIVteam Member asked a question 💭

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.

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’ve been married for 35 years now , we split for 6 months about 3 years ago and I started dating a woman that ended up infecting me , I’m back with my wife now but sleeping in separate rooms and even though she knows I can’t infect her refuses to have anything to do with me. I keep looking for reasons to stay but I’m running out . I’ve met a few ladies but as soon as I tell them I’m positive their gone . So I guess it’s just me and rosie
