Knowledge is power.  The first thing I did upon being diagnosed, was research.  I scoured the internet and came across this site which was very helpful in answering my questions.  Look around, ask lots of questions and learn :)  

I felt like I had just been handed a death sentence.  But I learned through research, that HIV positive indiviudals can lead 'normal', healthy lives.  The medications and health care avaialbale today, are definitely to your advantage!
