HIV diagnosis stories and support

A new HIV diagnosis tends to come as a shock. It’s normal to experience a range of feelings, and for those feelings to change from moment to moment. The most important thing to remember is that you are not alone. The latest Positive Perspectives Study found that people living with HIV who speak openly with others and feel more involved in their care reported better health outcomes and quality of life. So, contacting HIV support groups and organisations dedicated to helping you get to grips with HIV management could be the first step to living well and staying on track.
