Bae found my ARVs after I didn't disclose my status to him


Dear MizzB 

I am 28 years old and HIV positive. I kept my status from my boyfriend because I was afraid that he might leave me. He accidentally found my pills and took a picture of them. He did send me the picture and ever since he is no longer talking to me. What can I do to not lose him?

Dear Sistas

Trust is one of the most crucial foundations of a relationship and once it is lost, it is difficult for the relationship to keep standing. Understandably it is not easy to disclose your status to people, however hiding it from someone you are dating is not fair. You took away the right to choose what he likes in a relationship from your partner. People are  not the same, and it is possible that he needs space to deal with his anger. All you can do is hope that he will eventually get in touch with you when he is ready. All the best!
