Response from Dr. Wohl
The next thing you must do is get yourself HIV tested. Your concern for him should not prevent you from also caring for yourself.
I know of no food or drink that will make a tremendous difference in your boyfriend's fight against HIV. HIV medications are his best chance and hopefully you live in a place where such medicines are available.
Also, if there are groups in your area that help people with HIV and those who care for them, seek them out. They may be able to provide emotional and other types of help.
