Some days ago I got a wound on my leg, and I use wet tissue which is passed by a sex worker(not very sure) to clean that wound (not fresh, about 5 hrs after I got this wound).
From then on I'm deep in fear of hiv. I began to wonder if that sex worker got a cut in her finger and the tissue paper was contaminated by her blood (because I was a little drunk that day and I can't remember the exact scenario), and then I used it to contact my wound I would at risk. After all the online consult EVERYONE told me the risk is 0 even if the the circumstance I presumed is real.
I know they are right, but at the same time, the knowledge of hiv transmission that I learned can't convince me the risk is TOTALLY ZERO, but I'm still in the mud of fear, and I keep asking the same questions. Now it leads to a situation that when I think about the wound in my leg, I can't stop the fear and anxiety in my mind.
