Coping With Depression/anxiety During This Pandemic While Having HIV:

Coping With Depression/anxiety During This Pandemic While Having HIV:

I feel like I am reliving the beginning of the HIV epidemic back in the 80's. Lots of feelings from back then come to mind again. The lack of both the Reagan and Trump administration to ignore the science and growing numbers of cases and deaths, thus acting much too late. Tremendous fear of the unknown, and the feeling "am I going to get It"? All the loss of lives. And so much more. I feel numb. I think many of the long termers like me… read more

Do People With HIV Wiith High Cd4's, No VL, And On Meds Have Less Chance Of Getting Covid 19?
