Newly Diagnosed with HIV/AIDS
Finding out that you have HIV can be a traumatic experience and you may experience feelings of shock, fear and anxiety. In the developed world, having HIV is no longer a death sentence and people from all walks of life are living with HIV, many enjoying full and active lives. It is important to receive expert medical information and recommended that you seek a HIV specialist doctor. Many people who have been newly diagnosed with HIV benefit from some counselling or find that getting involved with other HIV positive people (peer support) helps them deal with their diagnosis.
