Hi and thanks for posting.
Seems like you're making a terrific recovery from very advanced AIDS. I'm with your doctor, but it's a subjective thing.
Yes, you have HIV, and once were very sick (or at least your immune system was) but aren't any longer. It's not necessary to disclose the AIDS, IMHO.
Be well, BY
