My Husband Was Taking ARV’s Secretly in Our Marital Home Without Telling Me
Baby Whose ARV’s are These….?” I asked him With a shocked faced!!
He Looked at Me with a fearful face but in silence!! Five Minutes Passed and he did not respond!!
Bashi Mutale Whose ARV’s Are These? still he was Quiet!! Looking lost like a thief caught stealing relish from a pot!
Iwe Chi Kabwe!! Can’t u hear me asking this question? Heh?
I had began to lose my patience!!
My Thoughts were running up and down!!
He finally responded… in a Quiet Voice. Those are My drugs Bana Mutale!!
From there I can’t remember what happened next!!
I just remember waking up from a hospital bed!!
A nurse explained to me that I had collapsed due to B.P!!
Then the thought came and I remembered,
where is My Husband I asked the Nurse.
He left that you should first get better she responded..
I started Weeping,
This Man had been my husband for 19 Years…
He was my best friend, how come I never saw him take his tablets…
Wait Wait Wait, how come he was taking them to save his life whilst neglecting Mine..? How Selfish!
The Nurses have asked me to Test For HiV too but am too scared of the outcome what should I do with my husband and should I take an HiV Test? can I still be negative am confused!!
