I'm a 23 year old guy who just was told I'm HIV + I go to my doctor next week what are something that keep me from thinking about this ?

Aug 5, 2012

What are some things I can do to not think of this sickness ?

Response from Dr. Holodniy

This is always a difficult time because you don't have all the information you need to know where you are on the HIV spectrum and whether HIV treatment is required at this point. I think it's important to learn about what having HIV infection means, so you can understand what the doctors will be telling you. website has some great information to get you started.

Sharp Drop in CD4 count
Newly Infected but low VL
