|Newbie to HIV
Oct 8, 2005
I recently got diagnosed with HIV and was told by my HIV specialist that I would eventually get AIDS. She said that in about 20 to 30 years and from the weakening drugs that I would probably be on for decades, I would eventually get AIDS. Is this true? Did I hear her correctly? Should she take a sensitivity course or it's just plain black and white, I will get AIDS later in my life? My Family doctor had referred me to her since she's the only HIV specialist, part time, according to him anyway. Any advise would be helpful to me. Thank you.

I don't agree with her statement. I can't comment on your suggested action plan.
