    I don’t want to underplay the horror of the 1980’s and 1990’s but he is absolutely right.

    HIV in 2014 is a chronic condition that is far easier to manage and control than type 1 diabetes.

    True, a HIV diagnosis has a stigma that Type 1 diabetes does not have, but that is OK – it is completely avoidable so there should be a stigma attached to it.

    “It’s not a disease, it’s just a situation.”

    This has to be the most clueless, pathetic individual on Earth. OK, if it’s not a disease, then his “pills” shouldn’t be covered by insurance or by the taxpayer. What a disgusting person to belittle disease and to consciously act to undermine human health.

    HIV is NOT a disease. It’s a virus that can be held in check very simply with medication.

    And it’s 100% avoidable.

    It’s not trolling to point out these indisputable facts.

    It is far more difficult to treat and control Type 1 diabetes than it is to treat HIV. And type 1 diabetes cannot be avoided – it is not acquired through lack of education or responsibility.
