So Now What?
A guide to your HIV+ diagnosis
First you need to sit down and breathe because right now you have to make some decisions and learn about HIV, however everything is going to be fine. Being HIV positive is not what you think it is, you are going to recover from this shock and soon you will continue on with your normal happy healthy life! You have to decide if you want to call some one right away or if you can manage the first few days by yourself. If you are partnered you will need to tell them and look to them for support. There is no need to rush into telling anyone else at this point, stop, reflect and decide if you truly want to call someone. Many people have an urge to tell everyone but for most people this urge will pass because your health issues are private and you are quite able to get through this first phase of a new chapter in your new life with support from the HIV+ community. There is plenty of time in the future, after you have prepared and rehearsed yourself, to let the people you care about know.
