How do I deal with a friend who has AIDS?
Jul 2, 1997
My name is Maria. My friend has AIDS. He seems very calm about it. But I am often in situations which make me feel uncomfortable. Sometimes I wish I could just hug him and cry because I want to let him know how I feel before it is too late. I guess that what I need are strategies, or tips on how I can emotionally deal with the problem. Would you have any suggestions?
