Introduction

Dealing with Diagnosis
Hearing the words “Your test came back positive” will likely impact the way you think and feel—about yourself and your future. 

Finding and Working with a Doctor
Your first order of business after finding out that you are HIV positive is establishing a relationship with a health care provider.

To Tell or Not to Tell
Deciding whom to tell—and when—is an ongoing process for people with HIV.

Support and Services
Living with HIV doesn’t mean going it alone. 

Living Well with HIV
Just because you’re living with HIV doesn’t mean that you are immune to other serious health problems. 

Sex and HIV
Your sex life doesn’t have to change (for the worse!) simply because you are HIV positive. 

Big Treatment Questions
Despite advances in treatment, figuring when to start it—and what to start with—are two of the most intimidating decisions many HIV-positive people face.

Financial Issues
HIV can affect you physically and mentally—and also financially.
