|I am short tempered
Sep 10, 2011
I am HIV+ and I seem to have a problem, I can't concentrate and I get angry most of the time. Please help -- is this related to my HIV status?

You don't indicate how long you have been experiencing these symptoms. Both are generally quite common and can be the result of a number of different causes, some related to HIV and some not. A period of stress can produce these symptoms, as can medication, depression, anxiety, or many other factors. I would recommend seeing a mental health professional who can take a more thorough history.
