A rugged cowboy from Brokeback Mountain, Wyoming, goes into the doctor's office and has some tests run. The doctor comes back and says, "I am not going to beat around the bush, you have AIDS."

The cowboy tugs at his Stetson and sets his jaw and says, "Doc, what can I do?"

The doctor says, "I want you to go home and eat 5 pounds of spicy sausage, a head of cabbage, 20 un-peeled carrots drenched in hot sauce, 25 Jalapeno peppers, 40 walnuts and 40 peanuts, 1/2 box of Grapenuts cereal, and top it off with a quart of prune juice."

The cowboy squares his rugged shoulders and asks, "Will that cure me, Doc?"

"No, but it should leave you with a better understanding of what your ass is for."

Acute HIV infection presents like many 'cold' viruses do: malaise, low-grade fever, myalgias (muscle aches), etc. The symptoms last from days to a week or more.

AIDS has very specific diagnostic criteria involving HIV viral infection (some nutcases don't believe this), a minimum CD4 count, an opportunistic infection (Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia is the most common), certain cancers (invasive cervical cancer, Kaposi's sarcoma, etc.), etc.

I took care of a lot of AIDS patients as an intern. With the advent of excellent anti-viral drugs, it has essentially become an 'outpatient' disease with very long survival rates.
