    it seems like the HIV/AIDS virus affects a signifigant number of people in this country.

    do you know anyone w/ this virus? if so, how did they contract it & how long have they had it for?



    I personally do not.

    Not really.

    ~1 mil HIV +
    and the VAST majority of them are gay men that are very active sexually or IV drug users.

    And less than 40,000 AIDS patients

    I had a patient of mine who has aids and we became friends.
    He contracted it through a kidney transplant he recieved as a teenager. So sad how he got it. But he has a bright spirit and otherwise he is relatively healthy and received a new kidney

    I knew a few others, but unfortunaty they died. Not one of them contracted it through sex; one was a drug user and the other contracted it through his mother at birth

    Are you a nurse? That's hot. :naughty: heh

    I know I'm being a cynic, but do you believe all of them? I just don't see people saying "Oh I got AIDS from banging this skanky dude in the ass without a rubber"...

    no i'm not a nurse

    of course i believe all of them. how people get aids is really no ones business, so for my friends to even tell me they have aids is very courageous of them and i have the upmost respect for them. when you look at it, do people tell you they have gonorrhea, syphillis, herpes, etc so freely? no

    and i'm pretty sure the gay community finds it a bit offensive that when people think of someone having aids, they automatically think that person is gay. and i don't blame them

    navy monkey lab. died like 15 years later.


    during the same couple of years (back in the mid 80s) 4 other people at the lab died from contracting b-virus, and it was shut down shortly thereafter.

    I am not aware anyone I know has AIDS or HIV. However there is a possibility someone I know has it and just doesn't share that news with the world

    That's why I asked...most aren't open about STDs and don't just volunteer it.

    I don't automatically think someone with aids is gay, I was saying that there are ways of getting aids that make for awkward cocktail party conversation. AFAIK the majority of aids patients got the virus through sex, not medical errors.

    My aunt has had it for 15+ years.

    She was literally on her death bed about 7-8 years ago...down to 70 pounds, hallucinating, barely recongnized us, but somehow miraculously she survived it and is doing pretty damn well now considering.

    Pretty amazing. :hsd:

    Athlete, who do you know with the virus, since I'm assuming that's why you made this thread?

    no one that i know of... i was randomly thinking of my college health teacher & the story she told our class of this kid she taught who always bragged about how many girls he slept w/ & didn't use condoms & a couple years later she saw him in the health clinic at school & he tested positive.

    odds are, she's just trying to scare you. Unless she worked in the health center... in which case thats a borderline HIPAA violation to talk about. Yada yada I know she didnt use names, but I work in an athletic training room and we're strictly regulated by that stuff.

    Editing myself: You can change the names of people without a problem, but have to change identifiable markers, too. In this case, someone could potentially know the identity based on knowledge of the class she taught and behavior characteristics, but the odds are very small.

    I remember my health teacher telling us about a girl who was a virgin and she lost her virginity at a party. She then contracted two STDs from the guy that took her virginity. Teachers are always full of stories. Who knows if they're real or not.

    Anyway, I've only known one person my whole life who had AIDs and he went to my church, when I was a kid. I remember being scared to shake his hand because I thought I would get AIDs. :mamoru:
