Wendy Torres, HIV/AIDS Advocate, Atlanta, Ga.

There's a lot of information out now that can help you understand your diagnosis and know what's available to you, what type of care you need, what to do with regards to your day-to-day life, what changes you need to make.

When someone comes to you after they've found out they're HIV positive, they're like: "Oh my goodness! Why me?" You start going through all the different emotional stages that you go through. But just be reassured that there is hope, there are medicines; there's a lot of medical technology out there! There's definitely hope and this is not the end.
