There was an article on the news about that, just recently.
I have to say I didn't notice any change in my friends behaviour towards me. I can understand that some people may just not know what to say. I would view that as their problem, and whenever a friend of mine has a problem I like to help, so I would be very open to them and encourage them to talk to me and get over their awkwardness. I wouldn't judge them negatively unless they explicitly said to me, "you have been cursed by this disease, due to your moral turpitude" then I would realise they probably had a problem I could not help them with.
p. s. I don't know what moral turpitude is, but it was on a US immigration form, and as it was in the same batch of questions as "are you a terrorist?, are you a communist?, are you a convicted felon?, have you committed an act of moral turpitude? " I assume it is the sort of question you answer NO to. Anyway they let me in to the States, and I went to Nevada, where I probably committed acts of moral turpitude, but what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas.
