My 27 year old best friend died two months ago due to undiagnosed AIDS that resulted in central nervous lymphoma (the ultimate cause of death). His health was questionable for the past few years so I confronted him last year to see if he was tested for HIV. I don't know if it was shame, fear, or both but he says yes and was negative. His cd4 was eleven by the time he was hospitalized. Thank you for owning your infection and addressing it. I imagine it is a slow journey back to normalcy but you will live a long and healthy life. Thank you for this thread as well. I might still have my best friend if he possessed your strength.

Tl;dr: HIV isn't a death sentence unless you are in denial and don't seek help.

Is there a standardized dough style or can you make it however you want?
