  1. Sana may take away lesson sa series na to. I'm just hoping hindi glorified yun condition nila. Aids is a serious medical epidemic. Kashokot nga kasi tumataas na yun bilang ng magiging positive dito sa Pinas.

  4. Former classmate ko, isa sa mga nambully sa akin, ay poz. Syempre malungkot ako, sakit yan eh. You would NOT want that on your worst enemy. Sa panahon ngayon nakakatakot yan talaga. Imagine may kakilala ako may ganyan sakit. It means sobrang dami ng afflicted ng HIV. Dapat mag spread tayo ng awareness at stop the stigma. Sabi sa mga news articles na science related (I f**ing love science sa facebook), malapit na ang scientists makahanap ng cure sa HIV. Pero of course mas mahalaga pa rin magkaroon muna ng awareness about the disease. Para ma prevent. Galing nga ng science eh, nakahanap ng cure sa diabetes. Anyway, I will probably watch that film. Interesting and probably educational.

    4. Sigurado talaga ako na kahit well-meaning ang comment ko, may mang-aaway talaga sa akin. Keribels lang. I'm happy. Hindi ako doctor, malamang magkakamali talaga ako. Napanood ko lang sa balita na potential cure ang aratilis daw. But of course awayin niyo pa ako. :) @5:17

  11. A close friend recently died. He just started looking weak, thin and fragile. Hanggang sa hindi na pumapasok then bigla nalang namatay. Nakakalungkot lang na wala masyadong nakuhang support, medically man or psychologically. Siguro dahil na rin sa stigma na meron. Marami parin nandidiri sa mga tulad nila. Marami parin hindi nakakaintindi.

    1. Was your diagnosed to be HIV positive? Kasi truth is unlike before na parang death sentence ang HIV, ngayon eh very easy to manage na sya with the right medications, basta malaman lamg ang conditions as early as possible (yung wala pang masyado complications). In fact, people with HIV now have normal life expectancy. Pero tama ka, baka wala syang nakuhang support or even sya ay in denial sa condition nya.

      One of my closest friends from HS ay HIV positive rin. He's very normal now and undetectable na ang virus sa katawan nya.

    2. Yes, diagnosed since 2011. Nalaman lang ng family three weeks before his death. It looks like he did not seek treatment. Hanggang sa nag progress na lang siya. I agree, may mga gamot na ngayon to prolong the life of an HIV pos person. Just that wala silang suporta kahit sa mismo sa work. Napakasakit magkaroon ng ganitong virus lalo na mamatahin ka ng mga ignorante.
