The phrase "full blown AIDS" is medically inaccurate and is not used today. The appropriate terminology would be to simply say AIDS or AIDS diagnosis. AIDS is the syndrome caused by HIV and is the end stage of the disease. When a person receives an AIDS diagnosis the immune system is severely compromised. The patient is susceptible to infections which can be life threatening. The development of new medications can now slow the progression of HIV and prevent the development of AIDS. New medications can also increase immune function (T-cells) and reduce viral load.

If they have it or suspect they have it, they are probably fearful of the potential fate headed their way. They fail to realize, however, that by educating themselves on what they might or does, or someone else they care for may or does, in fact have, theyl can prevent or at least slow down the progression of the disease to AIDS.
