Have you ever known anyone with AIDS or HIV?

I personally haven' least that I know of. I've known so many people with other diseases, but never either of these. Just curious how common it is that people know others currently diagnosed with either disorder/syndrome.

  • I've been HIV+ for 14 years. Most people who know me have no idea. I go to work, school and have a lovely family. I'm just like any other mom...almost lol.

  • Yes, I have known quite a few. I was friends with a woman who contracted it from her husband who cheated on her. She was devastated. I also had a friend who died from it. She used a lot of needles at one time in her life. However, she died clean from drugs. It's a hard thing to live with.
