I just never imagined that something like this would ever happen. It's so sobering at least I would think. I now know a person with this affliction and I think you might already be guessing what it is. I don't exactly know how to handle the shock, It's just that I'm so concerned and I just don't know what exactly to feel, It's almost as if I know less everyday.
My (adoptive) Father has AIDS. It turns out it's been for awhile, about 6 years I think. I'm so worried for my Dad, he's the only one I have. I know it's a little to late to be worried since it's nothing new to my Mom apparently (does not have AIDS). I still worry though, I heard the average life span of a person diagnosed is 24 years, although it may be less for my Dad.
It's no wonder now why he always said he wouldn't be around much longer.
