He wasn’t officially diagnosed with AIDS Freddie Mercury wearing Santa Hat Christmas sweatshirt until ‘87 – so they say, but band members and friends have said that he had mentioned that he wasn’t well long before and that he had a good idea that he was not very well. Even back when without meds it was possible to live for more than 10 years HIV positive before starting to rapidly deteriorate from AIDS. The average time period was between 5 and 11 years of being HIV+ before succumbing to AIDS. There were very rare cases of people having super aggressive infections and going from being freshly infected with HIV to AIDS in a matter of 5 years, but this was the exception, not the rule and doesn’t appear to have been the case for Freddie.
