Sick Sense
      #240740 - 07/17/08 07:19 PM

Just recently I think I put some puzzle pieces together on a friend of mines actions. We had an argument several weeks ago and we haven't spoken since. All I can say is he seems very insecure with himself. I been wondering if the seclusion from people and going off and partying is him trying to get away from the fact he may have HIV or AIDS? Why did I think of this because the one thing that concerned me is his sex life and how much he got together with others to have sex. Feedback would be nice here I was just curious what are the signs someones dealing with being HIV or they have aids?

It's a pretty big jump to assume someone is HIV+ just because YOU deem their behavior to be some how different from what YOU consider norm.

People party for a variety of reasons....from just wanting to have a good time, substance abuse, problems at work, home, lovelife, etc.
You deem your friend as insecure with himself. Maybe so...maybe not.

People deal with all sorts of issues in life in different ways....there is NO sign of someone dealing with HIV/AIDS.

Instead of guessing, why not ask your friend what's on his mind?

Thats one thing I didn't want to do which is why I hashed it out here my thoughts and getting feedback and I appreciate yours. As far as asking him when we talk again basically because we are on no speaking terms at this point.

Usually the first signs of someone who just found out is depression and withdrawal. That passes quickly if they get help.

Frankly, your friend sounds more like someone with a drug problem getting out of hand, but I'm guessing here. It could be anything. Good luck.
