I would definitely say, first of all, take a deep breath. Don't freak out too much. There's a lot of information out there.
Then I would suggest meeting with a doctor, regardless of what the next steps are. But I think you need to form a relationship with a doctor. Then get your blood work done. Pay close attention to your blood work with the ultimate goal of getting on meds if you need to and working on an undetectable viral load. That's very key. That's really worked for me.
