Hey peeps, I'm just wondering. What would you do if one day, you discovered that you have AIDS (regardless of where you have acquired the disease)? Me? I would definitely freak out and I wouldn't know what I will do after freakin' out. How 'bout you guys? Be Nostradamus this time...

I would probably shoot myself because I'm having enough trouble as it is finding someone.

Well of course something like that would freak anyone out, but I could think of worse thing happening to me... At least you don't die from HIV today. You dn't just get AIDS, it starts as HIV and never develops into AIDS with the propper treatment.

Actually, You can test positive for HIV and have AIDS. If you've had the virus in your system for some time, without knowing it, You cann be diagnosed with AIDS. It depends on your t-cell count.Most people have at least 1200 to 1500 t-cells. When your positive and your count drops to 200 and lower,You have an AIDS diagnosis.

I would rather spent the rest of my life to my family and love ones.I will make sure that everyone will be happy and enjoyed in when I am with them.In that way I feel complete and I should be ready enough to face when time comes to end my life.

A couple of years ago I had pneumonia and I was put in the hospital for it. They couldn't figure out what caused it so they wanted to do an AIDS test to rule that out. So you can imagine what all went through my mind for the two days as I waited for this test to come back. I didn't think I had it but one never knows right? I felt a lot of panic and anger about it. I knew that if I did yes there were treatments but if I was already getting pneumonia from it that meant it was pretty well advanced and that scared me. Thankfully it came back negative which I was very relieved about. Until then I was really scared and freaking out at the possibility.
