I was diagnosed pos in 2003.  Started meds right away and have been undetectable for 8+ years now.  Wife refused to get tested but has stuck with me thru this and after several years resumed almost normal relations, both sexual and relationshipwise.  Being human, we did have sex without a condom on certain occassions, but never stayed inside for orgasm. 

She remains in great health, but now has a cold that has progressed to walking pnumonia.  Of course, I think she should get tested and am in fear of her being positive.  However, I read this article today (see subject line).

Yes, I know the best thing is for her to get tested, but other than that that any recomendations?

I decided it was either time to get busy living or get busy dying.

  • red pill? or blue pill?
What strikes me is that you say your wife "stuck with you" through "this" but does not know her own HIV status. For all anyone knows, she, too, might have been positive 8 years ago.

I don't see how any recommendation could be more reasonable than the fact that its time your wife face the music and get tested....

My late partner foolishly thought he was negative and didn't get tested again during the 9.5 years we were together and were having safe sex. When he couldn't shake the flu and ended up in the hospital, we found out he had non-Hodgkin lymphoma and AIDS. He died 69 days later. :'(

your wife, getbusy, should really get tested ASAP.
