Dear Arpit,

A HIV positive man can definitely lead a normal life. Just visit your nearest clinic and ask the doctor /counsellor about your doubts and also know fully what being HIV positive really means. I would advice you to start prescribed medication as soon as possible.

Living the "normal" life

Hello Arpit,

The answer to your question is YES. HIV is not transmittable via air and water. Sharing of clothes, eating food from one plate, drinking water from one glass, washing clothes with the rest DOES NOT transmit HIV. HIV is just an illness that can be kept under control with strict adherance to medication. There is nothing to be afraid of. Hug, kiss and play with your family, be assured that it is NOT transmittable that way. Good news is that you can even marry and live the normal life.

Love and Light
