Mike Godfrey was 19 when he found out he had H.I.V.
He was 29 when he began antiretroviral therapy.
He was 43 when he had a heart attack.
“I felt fluttery,” he said. “Weird and fluttery. It went away. I ignored it. A week later, it came back, and this time I felt something in my arm too. I was too stupid to call an ambulance. I got in a cab and went to the hospital.”
