Blue Pills: A Positive Love Story: 04/13/16
Blue Pills: A Positive Love Story by Frederik Peeters is a graphic novel format memoir about the early days of the author's relationship with Cati. She is HIV+ and so is her son.
Fred though enjoyed her company and was willing to educate himself about HIV and continue a relationship, including a sexual one with Cati. Meanwhile, he also took on a role as a father figure for her son, including going to doctor's appointments and hospital trips.
It's a charming story about a real couple with real flaws, real fears, and the sense of humor to work through tough times. The trips to Cati's doctor to talk about sex are especially well done.
