What can I do at home if I am sick and have HIV/AIDS?

ANSWER

Whether you have a cold or the flu, if your appetite is down it's important to try to eat something and drink plenty of fluids. Smaller meals may help until you get hungry again. Also, rest as much as you can and get plenty of sleep so your body has a chance to recover.
