Compromising Situations...

Dearest all,

I hope that you have been fine....its been long since i wrote but never the less i am glad that i am strong and that good things have happened and some that are not too good either.....never the less the fight continues...

I am glad that this is my way of lettings things out may be to people who understand me in a much better way...it has come to my attention that no matter what people out there will never understand you unless they themselves have walked in the same situation...as the say the wearer of the shoes knows best where it pinches most.

My friend Maureen came to me almost an year ago in joy that she had met this really nice lad who treated her with alot of respect and most of all like a lady that she was...the only compromise was that this guy was never aware of her condition...she was really in love with this guy and she feared that if he would ever find out he would run away from her and as we talked on lengths she came out with a suggestion that she will do whatever it would take to protect the then boyfriend from this dreadful virus and that if he would ever find out as much as he would be mad with her he will be thankful that she protected her.

The day did come where in one way or the other the boyfriend learn t about her condition and as i guess he must have been very better with her and he decided to call it quits ....when i asked Maureen of what she felt about the whole episode she tells me in between sobs that she was sorry if she hurt him but also laments that she tried breaking it off on many acquisitions so that she may move on with her life but he never let her...he always assured her that he loved her so much and was one of the most reasonable guys she has ever come across...

"i know that it is over but i know that he is a happy man...not so many are like me"she says...."i really took care of him"

As she wipes tears of sadness on her face i am left to wounder should he say thank you and move on or should he blame her?

My conclusion...for the fast time i have none....i dont know what my reaction would have been if i was in the same situation...

God bless!
