A bitter pill. (reader forum).
Thanks for addressing the misconceptions and delusions regarding AIDS ["The 10 Biggest Lies About AIDS," April 1]. I was infected with a virus two years ago that is resistant to all but three of the current meds available (in the NRTI class). My medical choices are obviously quite limited and my future even more uncertain than most in my predicament. Please, continually remind people that the pills won't work for everyone and that as the pandemic evolves and med usage increases, more and more people will spread highly resistant strains, severely limiting the drug options for those newly infected. HIV-positive people must take responsibility not only for themselves but for those they may endanger. HIV must stop with us who are positive!
