Book for family members to explain HIV
« on: October 16, 2009, 12:36:35 AM »
I am looking for any book suggestions to give to family memebers, which explains what HIV is, how it works, the body, emotional support, dealing with, etc.

Anybody have any suggestions?  I'm thinking of telling a couple family members and want to give them this also.

Thank you!  I was kind of hoping for something that would be more specifically, catered to family who are just finding out about another family member, dealing with all those emotions and question.

I do appreciate these though and will check them out.

Thanks for the help.  I was googling away last night, but wasn't quite saying that.  I was like, "Books for family members of someone with hiv". hahaha.
