We are always in contact with micro organisms. So we must take good care of our bodies and use condoms, because AIDs rightly attacks our immune system, which defends the body from "potentially dangerous invaders." When HIV undermines our defenses to a state where the immune system is no longer able to defend our body, opportunistic diseases follow. Do not think that we, the seropositive, die because of a "simple flu". Opportunistic diseases are serious, serious and you can learn more about them after reading this text by clicking on the red links in this text.
Opportunistic diseases "express themselves" in various ways.
Cancers that would rarely affect us, like Sarkoma de Kaposi (some people tell me that the correct pronunciation would be "capósi", other di9zem that is cáposi, choose your version and, like me, play the fool here and there! .
For example, Hodgkin's lymphoma is one of them.
We lost a friend, AmarylisAmarilis, because of a "non-Hodkin" lymphoma, because there was not enough knowledge to discern others, and among many, we now have ALSO Burkitt's lymphoma, which affects, more specifically children, but may have led our friend.
There are some bacterial infections, such as Pneumocystosis, Pneumonia. carinee, extremely aggressive that brought me one in painful despair and, after two or three weeks, this person lost his nephew and, after eleven or twelve weeks, led me to the Status of blocked on Whats App.
Charging or not charging. People look for me in the worst hours :-(
And it is by these and others that I come, gradually and gradually reducing the possibility of contacting me through Whatsapp and perhaps, and it is quite probable that I will speak it, more deco or later I will end up TO CHARGE to give this type of access, since few and very rare people maintain an authentic relationship of friendship with me.
But this is not the point here. I Speak About Opportunistic Diseases
The point is to expose the opportunistic diseases, the danger they pose (I only knew and knew a person who was diagnosed as having AIDS and had toxoplasmosis and survived without sequelae in more than two decades of work and living with people with HIV and, HOWEVER FLU IS NOT AN OPORTUNIST DISEASE. SCORE!!!
I hope that the session can be useful, and that it can better clarify what it is to be HIV positive, what it is to be a person living with AIDS and what they are opportunistic diseases.
And, may they always remember:
Influenza, H1N1 or Influenza, are not opportunistic diseases!
What are opportunistic infections? In our bodies, we carry many microorganisms - bacteria, protozoa, fungi and viruses. When our immune system is working, it controls these germs. But when the immune system is weakened by HIV disease or some medications,
