Mental Health Questions
« on: July 19, 2014, 04:23:32 PM »
Hi all, I am a student  . I need help answering some questions. 1. What was your reaction when first diagnosed HIV positive. 2. Tell me emotions that you experience with being infected? 3. Do people close to you talk about HIV? What do they say ? 4. What is most challenging emotionally about being HIV poz? 5. How do you cope with aging with HIV? 6. What are the situations in which you find yourself using substances? 7. Are you depressed  ? 8. Do you concern yourself with things you cannot control? 9. What are your concerns about HIV? 10. What can you do to improve the quality of your life? 11. Have you missed a dose of your meds? 12. How often do you think about HIV? 13. Do you worry about STD's? 14. What problems do you think you may face in the future? Thanks for your help

I am locking this post and do not post again, regarding this subject, until you have the permission of POZ.
