Diane shared her story on 20/20 and Oprah and now comes to POZIAM RADIO.Diane is a 58 years old and up until 2000 she was married most of her adult life. She like many others enjoy being in a caring, loving relationship and so after her divorce it was tough getting back in the dating scene. After 2 years and kissing alot of frogs, Diane thought she had found her prince a soft spoken, polite and charming computer guy with a great job and a way of making her feel like she was the only woman in the world.She was thrilled when they agreed to be exclusive and other than one indiscretion on his part she thought they were. Until they broke up and her world fell apart. After a diagnosis of pre-cancerour cells in the cervix due to HPV, Diane started investigating her former lover. Imagine her shock to learn that he had been seeing numerous other women. She felt compelled to warn them about the HPV, and thru a series of miracles and twists of fate, She also had contracted AIDS from this man. They had discussions about HIV, before and he insisted he was negative , and she surmised in looking back that he might have known all along. Angry and terrified, Diane actually found 11 other women he had infected. They banded together as sisters, not by birth parents, but by sharing the same disease in our blood. The women cried, they hugged, and they loved each other, as they processed the betrayal of a man-- the same man they had once loved. As the women shared, they came upon shocking news--he was continuing to victimize others in spite of his knowledge of his status.
