Well My nephew who is 24yrs old & has been HIV positive since he was 9yrs old. is stayin at an HIV/AIDS house since June1,2011 because he needed care I couldn't give him. He hasn't taken his meds for 1 1/2 years because he says it messes with his head but he has lost soo much weight & he looks bad & I am scared that this is the end. If he starts takin his meds again would it b possible he will live longer? I was told if he doesn't take his meds he will die I am so lost for words I don't know what to do
