I’m 33 and my husband is 49. At first, he was my everything and I trusted him. But two years ago, he changed and started cheating on me. Now I’m HIV positive. I just felt like killing myself, but then I met a wonderful man. We have strong feelings for each other, but we don’t have sex. I hate myself for what I’m doing. How do I forgive my husband and move on with my life?
