multimedia productions: the graying of AIDS: Sue's medication

There’s not a day that you don’t wake up and know you have HIV. Probably, out of nineteen years I had five good years.  The rest of them I’ve been sick as a dog.

Those things made me so sick, uh, God they made me so sick! And you’ve got to do that for the rest of your entire life?
