Well, you need to change that because it isn't necessarily true. You could get hit by a bus tomorrow.

I know it is a difficult time, however, it generally takes 5-10 years to just get the symptomatic state of HIV, and in some cases longer. At that time one would start meds,and with current drugs and the R & D going on, the prognosis is quite good for living many, many years beyond that. Who knows, in 10 years there might be a cure or something close to one. Look how far we have come in just the last few years.

Keep a positive attitude and a healthy lifestyle & consult with your doctor regulalry. You will be fine.
