I need your advice. I worry about my friend

My friend found out he is HIV +… it was a big shock for him and he started talks about suicide, bad thoughts are following him. I try to support him, but I can hardly find right words. I proposed him to find forums or groups of people with the same problem. He refused this idea. I tried to talk about professional psychological help. The same reaction…from the one hand I want to give him some time to calm down and think more clear, from the other hand I worry a lot about him. I do not want him to make something stupid and terrible. What do you think I should do?

It is good that he has you, someone who worry about him and wants to help. He will be fine, just try to be with him more time, try to explain him that life is great and he still can live a normal life!

Thank you for your advice. I spent a lot of time with him and seems like he is better now. I feel he is more confident and onjective in understanding that it is not the end of his life and everything can be fine!

I am glad that your friend is much better now, I hope he will be objective and understand that he is still able to live a normal life and to enjoy evertyhing possible. He will be fine, he was just too emotional at first and now I hope he is able to keep himself from making stupid things.

I has such a situation with one of my collegues. He also had bad thoughts and even got to hospital after a try of vein cut. But he understood his mistake and began to value life. Now he has a family and enjoy his life. HIV is not an end of life! Hope he will be fine!

I hope, too. But one thing that you could do for your comrade is to come to him and glad with him your lives.
Friends don't do the terrible things in your life, it's a sin, your sin. And only God can take your lives back , but not you....!!! Remember it !

there are many people whoare living wi this problem, so you might know someone who is living with this virus. maybe it will be helpful for him to talk with such people< they will help him how to fight with his emotions, and how to move on with it. Having HIV doesn't mean your friend will be sick or disabled by the virus.

The most important thing! Remember, our world has hundreds of thousands of people who live with this long and happy life!
The most important thing for him to get medical care: Go for regular check-ups and stay in tune with health. Treat any illness immediately! And, if he taking antiretrovirals (ARVs), remember not to miss a dose as he could become resistant to the medication.
Eating a balanced diet will also help in boosting your immune system. A healthy diet contains protein (like meat, fish, eggs and nuts), carbohydrates (such as pap, potatoes, rice and bread), vegetables and fruit. Avoiding alcohol, smoking, stress and people who are sick with flu, colds and other infectious diseases also helps.
Caring for your well-being doesn’t stop there! Care for your feelings; when you feel scared or depressed, talk to someone. Don't keep it inside and turn it into stress. Stress will make you sick – literally!
Practicing safe sex is always important, even if you already have HIV. Sex without a condom can weaken your body through giving you more infections, like other strains of HIV from your sex partners. That way, you'll get sick more quickly. Use condoms. Love your life – make the most of it whether you are HIV positive or not! Find out what makes you happy, joyful and peaceful inside.

Is he sure about the diagnosis? Early signs of a hiv infection usually occur 3 to 6 weeks after contact with the virus. mostly symptoms can resemble a flu and will stop after a short period of time. it can then take years until new symptoms appear. those could vary very much and are generally a result of a declining immune function.
if you believe you could be infected don't have unsafe sex and get tested in a couple of months. (if you don't believe you have been infected have safe sex anyway
