Just found out my step-brother has HIV

How would that make you feel?

I told my mom and step-dad that I don't see it as a huge deal. You can't get it from a hug. I don't plan on treating him any differently or keeping my kids away.

I haven't talked to my husband yet, but I think he'll feel the same.

How would you react?

My step-dad was relieved when I told him. I feel sad for him as a parent facing this, and for josh having it. It's all very sad.

Quoting momma-flynn:
