I am here because my mother died of AIDS back in 2009. God i miss her. I just don't undertand why she wouldn't take her medication. She was diagnosed with the virus in '99. So for the next 10 yrs she basically took her medication when she felt like taking it. And i believe that's the only reason i got her for that long. I know if she would of taken her medicene like she was supposed to, she would still be here. I just don't undertsand...

 It probably is very hard for you to understand..........especially since you are just seeing from the point that if you take the pills they make you better. But for some thats not al that come with the do alot of side effects.Don't get me wrong........I take mine.......and I believe everyone should give their meds the chance, but sometimes it is just like it is with any other disease.........take cancer and chemo for example..............alot of people choose to just take their chances with the disease other than being sick from all the other stuff they are having to put into their bodies. Again I completey believe in taking my meds.......never miss a dose..........but I can understand why some people may choose not to do so.
