Overcoming adversity and empowering yourself and others

Brain Drain, ADHD And HIV

For a long time one of my biggest fears about living with HIV has been the effects on the brain. Several years ago I leaned into that, which unexpectedly led to a diagnosis of ADHD after some testing. It’s understandable how something like Attention Deficit Disorder fell through the cracks during a childhood influenced by the diagnoses of- in exact particular order- hemophilia, hepatitis B, HIV and hepatitis C.

Check out my latest article for H-I-V.net about the mental effects of worrying about the mental effects that HIV can have on the brain.
