With other diseases such as Cancer a person has a reason to fight because there is a chance that it can be treated if it is detected at an early stage.
Thirty years ago HIV was considered a death sentence to anyone who contracted it, now there are drugs that can extend life by many years.

I have tried to keep my mind busy by returning to my studies, but the feeling for it is not there any more, I have spent the last fifteen years perfecting my trade and have picked up over twenty certificates during that time with the final one being my Bachelors degree.
