One day I asked a few of my colleagues what they knew about HIV/AIDS and I was amazed at how ignorant they actually were! To think that I work at a firm that's supposedly composed of enlightened professionals!

It's almost like my system is learning to coexist with the parasite but the thing is I'm never 100% myself. Can anyone suggest something?
