“So I just found out I’m HIV positive…”

leave a comment »

While certainly it gets less attention in the press than in previous years, HIV continues to be a hovering presence in the GLBT community.  And while no one wants to get an HIV-positive diagnosis, it is not the death sentence that many assume it is.  Through medical management, HIV-positive men and women can live active, and full lives.  HIV is now more on par with diabetes in terms of affecting one’s day-to-day life.

This does not mean that an HIV-positive diagnosis is not a shock.  We hear from numerous callers when they discover their positive status, and many question the probability of attracting loving and sexual partners.  It can be reassuring to learn that there is an active HIV-positive community, and that for many people who are informed and educated about HIV and how it is transmitted, a positive status is not a deterrent for love or sex.

If you were recently diagnosed with HIV, please give us a call.  We’re hear to talk whenever you need to.
