Overcoming HIV-related anxiety
If you are living with HIV, you may sometimes feel isolated or alone. You may face stigma or discrimination from others who do not understand your condition. You may struggle with managing your health, your emotions, or your relationships. You are not alone. There are many people who share your experiences and challenges, and who can offer you support and encouragement. One way to connect with them is through an online support group.
An online support group is a forum where people affected by HIV can communicate with others in a similar situation. You can join an online support group from anywhere, at any time, as long as you have an internet connection and a device. You can choose to remain anonymous or create a profile with your photo and details. You can post questions, stories, or advice on various topics related to HIV, such as diagnosis, treatment, prevention, daily living, community resources, etc. You can also respond to other people’s posts or send them private messages. You can join public groups or request access to private ones. You can also start your own group if you have a specific interest or need.
