I have not been tested yet (last test was several years ago and was negative) and am afraid to find out the answer, but assuming I am HIV
+, how long would I be symptom-free? Are there any alternatives to HAART
? I am scared to death of having to go on regular drug treatment, because of the side effects and the fact that I can't afford it. If I go to get tested, how am I going to face the result if it is positive? I know these questions are moot, but please humor me.
