BACCHINI, Alessandro Melo; ALVES, Lúcia Helena da Silva; CECCARELLI, Paulo Roberto  e  MOREIRA, Ana Cleide Guedes. Reflections on the uneasiness of living with HIV/Aids. Tempo psicanal. [online]. 2012, vol.44, n.2, pp. 271-284. ISSN 0101-4838.

For the individual HIV/Aids appears to be represented as an foreigner that invades the body and produces effects on the order of what is unsettling, since it recovers childhood's castration complex. There are many new impositions from this diagnosis: weight loss, a weakened immune system, impossibilities to intercourse and the very real possibility of imminent death. Furthermore, HIV/Aids seem to carry the additional burden of a sexual element - and its representations in cultural imaginary - because today this is still a major route of infection. It is regarding this individual that we propose a dialogue between the Aids diagnosis and the feeling of weirdness in Freudian theory.
