Fortunately, much has been done in the last few years to enable those suffering from this disease to live in more comfort and to maintain a fulfilling life, but the disease still can be devastating-both physically and emotionally.

The Social Security Administration lists HIV as a condition which can be disabling when the symptoms interferes with the persons ability to engage in sustained work activity.
