My brother is living with AIDS
      03/30/00 08:16 PM

Could someone help w/some answers.....

My brother is living w/ Aids........but not handling his own
treatment very well. He skips medicines that his Drs. tell him to
take , he doesn't ask questions of his Drs. And can never answer
the questions I have about this disease he is supposed to be
Fighting!!!!!!! First of all, I understand that the higher your
viral load is, the worse it is.........but how high can your
viral load go? Also, he has terrible night sweats........what
could this be from? Is there anything he can do to ease these
terrible, drenching night sweats? Why do his Doctors not address
these sweats? Are they that common w/ this disease that they
don't diserve addressing?!!!!! How can i help my brother, who is
only 28 yrs. old, and way too young to not care about himself,
how can I help to change his attitude? Do I push myself on him
and put my nose into his life, ....he never wants to discuss
anything about the disease, his treatment, the way he feels, the
way he wants to be treated, the dreadful eventualities, like what
his wishes are if he should fall into a coma, what his wishes are
as far as funeral, burial, etc. not to mention he has no life
insurance policy......where am I ever going to get the money to
bury my brother!! We are all that each other has, and I want to
be involved. Please anyone who might have suggestions for me, it
would be greatly appreciated.
