it is also a type of anxiety.......

it deals with the disease hiv-aids.

the person who has it always keeps on thinking about it and what will happen if he gat it ,......he kkeps on thinking that he can also get it by his sexual relations with peoples in his life...even if he had safe sex...........

some people had this anxiety also becoz..there is no cure for aids...and this makes them scared and prone to hiv anxiety

as i had been told by my elders and other experts on this site....

1)  always think the positive side of everything rather than concentrating on negatives.

2) never keep unwanted and disturning thoughts in ur head.,,,,,if they r really annoying u share them with ur frnds and family or psychiatrist.....it will fell good and they will dissappear as theyapppeared naturally.

3) do not ask questions to urself like what if? can this happen?..........they will always get u depressed not even u but every human in this world....so dont raise such questions.

4) as said by great MAHATMA GANDHI - " if u can conquer ur fears then u can achieve anything in this god damn world"

hope they helped u as they had helped me.....
