People living with HIV who are taking their medication correctly can live a normal and healthy life.
As well as taking your medication, you can look after your general health by:
- Eating a healthy, balanced diet.
- Doing regular exercise.
- Stopping smoking.
This NHS information page gives plenty of advice for people living with HIV, including telling people, getting support and pregnancy.
Has your HIV diagnosis affected your mental health? It's just as important to look after your mental wellbeing as it is your physical wellbeing!
Be Resilient provides mental health resources for people living with HIV. This includes mindfulnss, coping with change and relaxation techniques.
If you need to talk to someone about your mental health, you can access our counselling and psychology service.
