More About This Title Living a Healthy Life with HIV
Completely updated to the current care guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and elsewhere, this book addresses the current emphasis on managing medications for HIV treatment and many of the illnesses that commonly occur along with HIV. Combining the latest medical advice with the ideas of hundreds of people living with HIV, the book is helpful for adults living with HIV, and for friends, family members, and others who support anyone struggling with HIV. New additions to this edition include topics such as aging with HIV and coping with the emotions brought about by being a long-term survivor.

"What continues to set this book above the fray is its emphasis on self-management, and its authors’ affirmation that a person with HIV must and can take control of his or her own illness and treatment." —Patricia Gale, blogcritics.org"Usually, when I’ve finished reading a self-help book, I’ve passed it along to others or donated it to the library, knowing that I would never use it again. Not Living a Healthy Life with HIV—this one gets a permanent place of prominence on my bookshelf. If you are living with HIV, it should be on yours also." —Hank Trout, aumag.org
