Out of Care

Wait a minute!  Don’t go.  If you are HIV positive, and have not accessed a medical provider or HIV related laboratory screenings, I urge you to just get through this paragraph.  Your health should be a non-negotiable, and access to care is available to you, particularly if you haven’t engaged in some time.  Please don’t let another day pass, and you not get in touch with a care provider.

We understand that sometimes you feel just fine.  You have no symptoms and life as you know it, is flowing without a ripple.  But keep in mind, that HIV doesn’t always manifest itself in outward or noticeable events.  Because of this, it is critical to access periodic screenings, and have a physical assessment conducted.  Remember your immune system can be affected by other opportunistic infections, that may begin as seemingly nothing, but evolve into a severe complications such as Cryptococcal Meningitis, Toxoplasmosis, PCP, a type of Pneumonia and even certain cancers.

Don’t allow yourself to remain without updated screenings or outside of a care system.  Contact a provider today.
