My boyfriend is HIV Neg
« on: August 04, 2006, 10:20:36 pm »

Needing some support/advice.   I am poz he is neg.  I didnt expect to ecounter so many emotional issues related to this.  I thought it would be about sex,  but its so much more.  Sometimes I feel like I shouldn't be loving him.

He is an amazing and wonderful guy and thinks the same of me.  Lately I have this irretablity around him and its coming out opposite from what I really feel.

Does anyone relate?

I think sometimes is impossible to believe that we can be loved by someone who is negative when we are positive.  How can they possibly love us when I have brought this into our relationship?  How can they say it doesn't matter when it is the focus of many waking and dreaming hours?  Are they just stringing us along? And, for what purpose?

You are blessed (as am I) that your partner is able to see you without your HIV status.  Sometimes, I think we don't believe we deserve to be loved because of our HIV status.  And, sometimes, I know that I have tried to sabotage the relationship just to be able to say (I know this is really screwed up), "See, I knew you wouldn't stick around when you knew about my HIV status!" 

Be so thankful and trust him/her...chris
