HIV Support Ethnography - Talk with me about your experience seeking support!
      #271630 - 04/11/13 06:59 AM

My name is Sophia and I am a college student who is personally and academically interested in issues of HIV/AIDS and sexual health. I am currently in an Anthropological Research Methods course that asks us to conduct an ethnography, a project that urges us to engage with a topic or community of our choosing, getting to know the cultural context through interviews and observations. I have decided to examine the various modes of support that HIV positive individuals seek out (including secular support groups, faith-based support groups, and online communities). If you are interested in participating, please let me know! I would love to hear from anyone who feels like sharing. Everything you share will be kept entirely confidential and will not be published in any way. You can either respond through this thread or we can communicate via skype, telephone, or email - whatever works best for you. I look forward to hearing from you!

Some of the specific questions that I have include (but are definitely not limited to):

Tell me about yourself. What support groups do you participate in? How did you decide to join this online community? Do you participate in other support groups? Outside of this forum, who do you rely on for support? What do you like/dislike about the nature of this support network?

HIV is not so bad. When you feel like your in a bad sistuation and you get down on yourself, always know that there are other people out there going throught the same or similar situations. Your not alone.
