I Love You Mom & Dad
It’s been almost a week since my parents came to visit me for my college graduation. They are in the other room watching TV and laughing. It’s nice to have them here with me. I am very close with my parents and they are my greatest supporters. The fact that I haven’t told them about my HIV status bothers me. That makes me want to tell them. But there’s not much that they could do for me except for worrying their whole lives when I disclose my status.
For the past week, my parents kept emphasizing that they are just happy that I am healthy and living. I know that I am healthy. But whenever they talk about health, I keep thinking of HIV.
I love you mom and dad. That is why I don’t want to tell you that I am HIV+.
