Your future

I am 27 years old and been hiv positive since September 1998. When I first got results I was terrified, ashamed, most of all heart broken because I thought I would not be able to give my daughter siblings let along find a man who would love me knowing the truth of my diagnoses. But god blessed me with a wonderful man who later married me.Due to great HIV meds I was able to have 3 more healthy children. I still can't talk about my diagnoses freely only few chosen family members know. I still don't know how to tell my children about it. My oldest is 11yrs old.Any advice? I am doing alright health wise could be better but meds got me feeling bumbed out so I don't take them all the time. I am scared I don't want to die so young and leave my children without a mother. I know some people can live 20 or more years with HIV. I know first hand my mother was diagnosed with hiv in 1984 so its been 23yrs and she still doing great. I just don't think I'm going to be that lucky. I just hope its long enough to see my own grandchildren. With all these new hiv meds hopefully there will be a cure in my life time if not I hope to god in my childrens life time. To all people out there be careful always use protection. This can happen to any one it did to me with my first love so I thought at time of diagnoses, I had only 1 partner he had many. So protect your future most of all yourself. Always use a condom. Thank you.
