Lostsoul is right: HIV doesn't kill you - it's the other diseases you catch when you immune system is depleted.<br />
Also, there are different strains of HIV which appear to react and spread in different ways. Some doctors have even suggested that there's a strain which never turns into full-blown AIDS, but I don't know how true that is. In the early days of AIDS, before any treatments were available, people with HIV tended to live anywhere between 2-10 years. It does depend on the individual though.
Till you get beaten to death by homophobic ******** who think that AIDS and HIV can be contracted by eye contact
