Hoping your daughter is ok dbarabians.

I volunteered at HIV testing clinics a while ago. We even had a bus that went out and did needle exchanges and free condoms to prostitutes.

The 10 year diagnosis of HIV to AIDS is now outdated, and thankfully it is much much longer.

A former foster kid of mine was born with HIV due to his moms poor career choices, he's now 18, and still does not have AIDS. I don't know what his levels are now, but when he lived with me his T cell counts were better than mine thanks to advances in medicine.

We've come a long way in the war on AIDS but there is still a long way to go. And it would be nice if young people considered the very real risks of the disease rather than just worrying about pregnancy, and more immediate concerns.

I hope she'll feel better very soon! The family is always a #1 priority!
