Just a few days ago, I was talking about characters I relate to. However, as the days went on, I realized I left some very important characters off. Now, I decided to include them.
Only four of the major characters have HIV/AIDS- Mimi, Roger, Collins, and Angel. However, at the same time, the impact shows throughout more than just those four. Don’t forget we are seeing life support meetings and how the disease is affecting the friends of the four characters who are living with the disease.
Yes, the characters in Rent are dealing with HIV/AIDS, but my Epilepsy is similar. What exactly do I mean by that? It has more to do with the emotions rather then the disease itself. Fear, frustration, stress, and anxiety are just four of the emotions that come with Epilepsy- those same four emotions come with HIV/AIDS.
