It depends on where I am living. If I work and live with friends  and coworkers who are educated and with good attitude, of course I will be a friend of him/her. But if I am surrounded by foolish people in a premature society, I will not make unnessory problems. I will help and support him/her in a secret way, but not in public.

I would remain friends with someone regardless of the disease they have.

One thing though, HIV does not have "carriers". Anyone who is HIV positive is a carrier. However HIV can only be transmitted via certain body fluids such as semen / vaginal fluid and of course blood. It's never been known to be transmitted by breathing, sweat or handshakes etc.

Before some of the idiots on the forum start up about HIV being a gay disease, it's not.  It nearly wiped out the haemophiliacs in many western countries due to lack of effective blood screening until 1986. It also infected many who had blood transfusions as well as countless women.  In fact a friend of mine's wife contracted HIV by having unprotected sex in New York and after she married my friend it ended up killing their daughter (born with HIV) and my friend.  3/3 in the family died.

How sad!

Not as sad as spending time in Africa with HIV/AIDS victims who are shunned by their society and families. The social stigma is horrific in many African nations.  When you consider that in South Africa, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Lesotho, Namibia, Mozambique and other African countries at least 10% of the population is HIV/Aids positive.

The true tragedy is that HIV infection rates are on the rise again as a generation of kids don't realise just how nasty this disease is.

I asked my Doctor if you can get HIV from a toilet seat

He said only if you sit down before the other bloke gets up
