You can't judge anybody for his or hers deeds. It's the Lord right, and he reserved it.

friends care about f riends and I would be so sorry if I found my friend had been infected with HIV. I would want him or her to get the verybest of medical care and I would not sit in' judgement on my friend at all. that is what friends are for to support each other in times of trouble.

I would stick by my friend, no matter what. HIV is a devastating desease, and i dont think anyone should have to go through it alone. Unfortunatly hiv/Aids doesn't discriminate, so i would say that i would remain friends with them and help as much as i possibly can. If one of my friends contracted hiv/Aids, and needed me i'd be there no questions asked. After all i would expect them to do the same for me, in my opinion thats what friends are for.

Well each have their own way of thinking.You cannot say that if i will not help my friend then I will not a good friend. Reason I have mentioned in my discussion if the person get infected in wrong way I will not help him/her,because in my view he cheat his family.

This person is still my friend no matter what. I would do what ever to help them, I am there for my friends in the good times and bad times.I would never turn my back on them when they need me the most.

Sadly, this has been a reality for me and I have had to comfort a friend who found out that he was infected with HIV. I did what any human should do which was let that person know that they still had a friend. Regardless of how they contracted the virus, I would still be there. I would want that person to show me the same compassion.

If you are a true friend, it isn't going to matter how the disease was transmitted. They only things that would be important is the time you have with your friend and the quality of life they will have. I would do everything I could to find out as much information on the subject and I would hare it with my friend. I would do what I could to find out if there is anything out there that would prolong their life. When faced with situations like this, I always find myself thinking, "What if it was me?" So, turn the tables for a minute...What if you were infected with HIV and you told your friend? How would you feel if you friends cut all ties with you? Do you realize how alone you would be if everyone would do that to you? What if you needed help and you had no one? Put yourself in your friend's shoes and then decide what you should do.
