Re: HIV a DISEASE or a CONDITION

I still see it in my mind as a Condition... Let me try and explain my FUCKED OVER LOGIC..

Right now I am healthy in as far as I have not developed any OI's. I have no other secondary complications to being +ve yet. Until I do, to me, I have a condition that could develop into something called a disease. I still like the word "condition" when I talk to lay people. I am very open and candid about hiv if I am asked. I just dont want to spread fear amounst people who purhaps do not know what hiv is or know how it has evolved related to meds toxic as they may be..... I keep seeing it all over the internet a HIV = DISEASE and how sorry we are for you. I frankly am tired of that kind of sympthay.. Yes, it can lead there, but if you are kept in check, these won't develop for some time. Am I off track at my stage of hiv? I dont know. Are we in some sort of transitionary aspect of this? I want to be firm and positive in how I communicate to others. I don't want to spread fear amounst people. I dont want to cause fear amounst my friends, family etc. Disease has that fucked up word "STIGMA" and HIV=DISEASE=DEATH. Thats all I am saying. For my own personal sanity, I like to say that I have a condition left unchhecked will kill me via all sorts of diseases manifesting themselves. Are we as a community doing ourselves a favor labeling this at all.. Again, I don;t know!!!!!!!

Ok, Now rake me over the coals, shove hot pokers in my eyes, gouge out my spleen (better yet my liver since I wont have one in a few years)...

REMEMBER I AM FRAGIL AND COULD FALL APART AT ANY SECOND.
