The First Year: HIV: An Essential Guide for the Newly Diagnosed (First Year, The)

Share |

Close to one million people are infected with HIV-the virus that causes AIDS-in the U.S., and though in the last ten years therapies have been developed to successfully fight both the HIV infection and its associated illnesses, the physical and emotional tolls are devastating. In the tradition of the other titles in the First Year(tm) series, The First Year(tm)-HIV uses a unique approach-guiding readers through their first seven days following diagnosis, then the next three weeks of their first month, and finally the next eleven months of their first year-to provide answers and advice that will help everyone newly diagnosed with HIV come to terms with their condition and the lifestyle changes that accompany it. Starting with the day of diagnosis, author Brett Grodeck provides vital information about the nature of HIV, choosing the right doctors, treatment options, coping mechanisms, holistic alternatives, and much more. The First Year(tm)-HIV will be a supportive and educational resource for everyone who wants to take an active role in the management of their condition.
