Family and Friends >> My Loved One Has HIV/AIDS

Worried sister

Self care
      08/01/03 01:37 AM

My family and I recently found out that my brother has AIDS. We had known for some time that something was wrong but because of many personal problems he had experienced, we thought he was severely depressed and not eating. Thinking this we thought all other symptoms stemmed from this depression. We were wrong.

My question is this - How can we be My brother has never really taken care of himself. He has never eaten well and has always been "thin". He hates doctors, medicine, therapy...all the things that he will need to have in his life now. How can we be sure that he is taking care of himself? Are there medications that come in the "patch" form? That way he wouldn't have to remember to take anything. And what about vitamin supplements to help with nutrition?

His care for himself is now my biggest worry. Any knowledge or advice is greatly appreciated.
