How would it feel to have AIDS?

Lets put this in to a real life scenario say you are 15 years old and you just went to the doctor and you discovered you have AIDS/HIV.What IS AIDS/HIV though? AIDS is disease in which there is a severe loss of the body's cellular immunity, greatly lowering the resistance to infection and malignancy.Now that doesn't sound that bad you get more sick so more days off school right,NO this means that you only have about 34 to 58 more years to live depending on how bad the case is.Now just imagine this because about 26 to 8%(counters with most aids amount) of people in Africa have AIDS and their time is running out.
