Living with HIV can be challenging but you don’t have to deal with it alone. You can get support from your doctor or healthcare worker and many places offer peer support groups where people living with HIV share experiences and support each other.
Friends and family may be able to support you too. Some people openly share their diagnosis with family and friends while others prefer to tell just one or two people they trust. Both are fine – it’s totally up to you.
The important thing to remember is that taking treatment means you can live a long and healthy life like anyone else. Alongside treatment, there are lots of things you can do to keep yourself healthy and happy, and improve your overall wellbeing.
