Jim Allen:

Sorry to hear that she is sick and, hope she feels better soon.

She needs to keep working with her doctors. If she is taking HIV medication (ART) for 5 years and they are suppressing HIV, then it's a case of working with her doctors to treat any other medical conditions or infections she might have that are making her sick, same as anyone else.

All you can do is be supportive, and prehaps just let her know you want to help if she needs it, that way she can let you know if she needs anything.


BTW I split your post into its own thread. It's the rule here not to post your own concerns/questions in other peoples threads.
