Hi Rob,

Obviously your brother must care about you to want to make such a great effort. How much conversation have you guys had about what he's doing? Is there some other way you would rather see him making an effort in relation to HIV/AIDS? While I think it's legit to make your feelings and wishes known, you also have to respect that he's an adult and entitled to make his own decisions.

It's good to hear you're feeling better and now beginning to make new plans for yourself. Make sure he knows that and maybe you can welcome his suggestions/support about that.

Seems to me more conversation is needed between you guys.
