Im newly diagnosed in 2008- im freaking out...i think my life and career is over! How long can i live, is it time for a career change?

The fact is that newly diagnosed people like you will probably have a full life like everyone else without HIV. Do not change any plans or use HIV as an excuse not to go after your dreams. That was probably true 20 years ago, but not so much today.
HIV is a wake up call that many people use to get healthier, but some others use it to get into self pity and self destructive behavior.
