Response from Mr. Chambers

You can take sick days without having to tell them the exact medical condition. Hopefully, your company provides you with some paid sick time you can use. If your employer requires a doctor's note, your doctor can put down symptoms that kept you out (diarrhea, indigestion, fever, etc.) without mentioning the HIV.
