How do I deal with my mother with HIV

Dec 1, 2007

My mother is 51yrs old and she casually told me she was HIV. I'm not sure how to handle it.

Response from Dr. Horwath

I'm not sure what exactly the difficulty is. Hopefully, she continues to be healthy for a long time. If you didn't know before, then I assume she hasn't been ill. If you have other questions about this, I would recommend talking to her about it. Since she told you, she appears to be open to talking about this subject.
