We all know that HIV is a sexually transmitted virus that attacks our immune system, leaving us without protection from other illnesses. There is a lot of misconception about HIV, and one of them is that HIV cannot be treated. That is false information. HIV can be prevented and treated, but if left without medication, our immune system will get weaker and weaker until we can no longer fight off viruses. It can lead to severe diseases. This can also lead to AIDS, and that would be a bigger problem. So, what happens when you find out that your loved one is HIV positive? It will be hard to grasp. With that therapists have some suggestions.
