Strategies for Managing a Life With HIV
The crisis of an HIV or AIDS diagnosis for the men of the AIDS Generation is examined in relation to an Eriksonian frame and a disruption of the normal process of human development. The holistic approaches utilized by the men of the AIDS Generation to survive the epidemic are shared and considered with regard to the physical, psychological, and social domains of well-being. Early medical interventions and approaches are reviewed and described in the experiences of the men. The development of social networks and activist agencies are considered with regard to the development of social cohesion and capital. The enactment of personal relationships are considered with regard to emotional well-being. Strategies for survival that attend to the whole person are emphasized. An examination of spirit and will-to-live is described in relation to the narratives shared by the men of the AIDS Generation.
