HIV anxiety

I suffer from what one would say a phobia of hiv/aids, surprisingly from non sexual activities and casual contacts, i definitely know that theres something wrong with me. I have had multiple tests over the course of 6 months, all negative. I am not infected but continue to suffer from fear of this disease. My question here is that who would be the appropriate person to go to, a psychiatrist or psychologist. Also that i'm afraid of taking meds related to a mental issue. Any other activties from which i can heal myself, like yoga, exercise or anything. If people here have had similar problems and managed to conquer them, then please share your success stories. Thank you. Eagerly awaiting a response

how do you feel about anti-depressant medication?
I too am currently suffering from a very real fear of HIV and have convinced myself I have it.

Too scared to take them, always been against allopathy and drugs, i can understand your fears, i'm open to cbt, counselling and those kind of natural treatments, thats why in a dilemma of psychologist or psychiatrist.
