anticiparoty grief and reversal of situation due to new medications

Jun 10, 2002

Dear Michael, I would like to do a research on how people, like me, diagnosed at a time where being diagnosed meant death have dealt with anticipatory grief and having the prospect or hope to have their life back? Are you aware of any book, study or research that couls help me, and can you give me your own opinion and insight? Many thanks, Ivo

Response from Mr. Shernoff

Obivously many long term surivors and long term nonprogressors have been trying to make sense of this transition in live expectancy. There has been alot written about it. I have a newly published book entitle HIV Treatment: Mental Health Aspects of Antiviral Therapy that does deal in part precisely with this issue. You can order a copy from the publisher by calling 415 502-4930. Also the link below is to an article in which I also discuss aspects of this.

I hope that this is helpful to you.
