I have an issue and I would love some advice please. My brother has a non-profit agency that offers HIV/AIDS testing and education. Well, I was over there when the son of a friend came in and got tested. Rene, he found out he’s HIV positive! This baby is just 19-years-old and his mom, my friend since junior high school, doesn’t even know he’s gay. My question to you is this; do I tell her or encourage him to sit down and talk to her?
Carrying A Heavy Burden
I’m so sorry to hear that about your friend’s son. As I see it, there are two issues: one, the HIV diagnosis and two, whether you should say anything to your friend. So here are a few thoughts and what I would do if I were you.
