On myHIVteam, the social network and online support group for those living with HIV, members talk about a range of personal experiences and struggles. Emotional health is one of the top 10 topics most discussed.

Here are some question-and-answer threads about emotional health:

"Does anyone else get/have gotten severe anxiety symptoms from HIV medications?"
"How do you cope with depression and HIV?"
"Do any of you take antidepressants in addition to your HIV meds?"

Here are a few conversations about emotional health:

A member shares how do they come to terms with their illness.
A member describes what it's like to lose their teeth.
A member notices that psychiatric issues, depression, anxiety, and loneliness are common with an HIV diagnosis.

Can you relate?
