Well like you, I came down with HIV/AIDS in 1986, & To This Day, 29 year's later. I'm doing well with the Aids Part of all of this. It has been all the "Side Effects" of dealing with AIDS that has had me so very Down. But God must have other Plans for me. As back in the 80's, most folks that Got HIV/AIDS did not last more than a few years. But Thank-God I have, and have out lived my Mother and Now am taking Care of my 82 year Old Father! And Thanks to finding good Health Plans both in Florida and here in WA. Where I returned to in 2000. I have Done Very Well with the Bill's & Doctors & All the BS.
