HIV can progress to AIDS quickly or slowly
Some people develop AIDS a few years after becoming infected with HIV. Some people can be infected with HIV for 10 years or longer without developing AIDS. However, most people will not know when they became infected. They will only realize they are infected when they become sick. It is believed that everyone who has HIV will eventually go on to develop AIDS.
It is now known that if you take care of your health, it can help you live for a longer time with HIV before you develop AIDS.
It is also known that if you look after your health, you have a greater chance of living longer after you have developed AIDS.
Later in this book we discuss how you can take care of your body and mind if you have HIV or AIDS.
