Patient discussion about terminate

Q. I heard that HIV is no longer considered a terminal illness?!? I saw a T.V. program about it and they said it’s a “chronic disease”. What does that means?? Is it true?

A. It’s true, it’s no longer considered terminal, but believe me, don’t throw away your condoms…the medication prolongs life and give you a chance to live but they are expensive and have nasty side effects. Enough to make you consider stop using them, and then the HIV comes back like nothing happened. Protect your self. It’s MUCH cheaper and wiser..
