Anxious About My Health And Future

Anxious About My Health And Future

It's been difficult for me lately to accept that I won't have the life I thought I would pre-pandemic after getting COVID twice as well as HIV. I feel like I've become increasingly debilitated physically and cognitively and I'm unsure what the rest of my life will look like. Does anyone have any advice on prioritizing your health and happiness?

Hello my friend and Welcome to our family. Please know that HIV is a lifestyle. It's not a lifestyle that we chose but it's a lifestyle that we now have. Having said that know that along with this lifestyle comes nutrition, exercise, meditation, work and so much more. You can live the life you've had before but you just must take extra care of your health going forward. Have a good doctor by your side and take your meds on a regular basis. Stay close here if you need us.

It takes quite a while to be ok mentally, i found a great therapist who definitely helped a ton, and then talked to my GP about seeing a psychiatrist. Best decision I’ve ever made!
