seeing sign of hiv everywhere?
About This Group:

This support group is for those who are suffering from stress or anxiety associated with uncertain HIV status. HIV anxiety is extremely isolating for those who are going through it, as it is often very difficult to discuss with friends and family members. This group is provided for sufferers of HIV anxiety to discuss their fears in a supportive environment. Those with anxiety over non-HIV STDs are also welcome. For personal advice concerning HIV risk, testing, and prevention, please post in the HIV Prevention Community.

I have tested negative after 6 weeks 3rd  generation elisa which is considered conclusive for low risk like mine (giving oral) . Now whenever i am convinced and try to move on i see a singn of hiv like in a news about hiv a picture on the internet. Today when i was in a good mood this songs comes on the radio called" dance for life  " and i start being paranoid again . Can anxiety and stress make u see see signs like this? Is this all delusion how can i get rid of this? Please help

Mental health problem not HIV problem. Seek professional mental help.

I understand what you mean. For a time, whenever I heard the word HIV or AIDS i would get a chill down my spine. That has lessened a bit.
I guess when your mind has been so consumed by something it can be hard to shake off, even if you know it's not there.
As Joggen said, professional therepy could be of help to you. Just talking about it can often lift the weight somewhat.
I found that when i talked to the HIV councillor when i got my test, many of fears seemed ridiculous when i verbalized them.
Overall you need to let the anxiety go. Hard to do though, isn't it?

Sorry for late reply
So you are saying i should consider my 6 weeks negative 100 percent and let it go?

Yes absolutely. I had dreams about it. I would be watching TV and something would happen on screen that would somehow remind me of HIV.
When you have had mental stress over something you see the "stressor" everywhere. Everyday there are stories about HIV rates/medicine/problems etc in the news, but it was only when I had a scare that my mind locked onto these things. I thought they were signs telling me that I had HIV too.
Of course, those stories were always there, i just never noticed them before.
I can tell you that for me this has declined considerably. Almost completely. Talk to someone.
I'm no doctor, but from my research 6 week test is fairly conclusive. 99% or thereabouts. Also oral itself is very, very low risk. Combine together the low/no risk situation and the negative test you can safely say you are HIV negative.

You never had a risk and your test confirmed it.

Hiv anxiety is tough to shake off especially when you have wife and kids. My therapist told me that the guilt mixed with fear of catching hiv is causing this terrible feeling. Its up to us to let go for our selves and believe our results. We also need to understand we make mistakes as we are all human and we need to forgive ourselves. You will be ok buddy.

Most of the day i do move on and trust my tests but sometimes like waking up or going to sleep i think about my symptoms like lump in the neck etc  i get this panic which i just cant shake off,the worst part is when i thinkof my mom. I guess my best option is to move on and trust science.  Cheers

Wow!!! its amazing how our minds can play with us. The worst are the symptoms they just keep reminding you. To know that someone else faced the same gives me hope because i thought its only me . Thanks

I m panicking again!!. Rashes are not going away . The big ones are red and small ones are skin colored some are red and others are white on the tip.mostly present near my hairline on the chest under my neck. Most of them are on the forehead and hairline . I scratched to of them on my chest and they started bleeding. While others dont bleed.A special feature is that many of them occur in pairs. I scratched one on my cheek and it turned white. They are there from more than three weeks  they started after i read about symptoms. Also i left town for 5 days and during this period they became less but increased when i got home. Please tell me these are not ars rash . Please help

What part of you didnt have a risk and you have tested negative, do you not understand? Is their another language we should type in, can you not understand what you have been told, can you not read?

Are you going to keep posting every time you feel unwell, its not like you have never been unwell before, unless your a medical mystery?

Time to grow up and stop this stupidity and either see a doctor if your unwell or seek help for your mental health but this forum cannot help you if you cannot understand basic points, no risk, negative tests means nothing you mention will be linked to hiv...... EVER.

The point is no one told me that i can be 100 percent sure about my results because i need 3 months. And i dont have the courage to test again my risk was low from oral but i didnt mention the guy also tried to put his penis in my anus but failed 2 or 3 times and it kept slipping of my hole  still no risk?

The point is you never had risk, so any test is conclusive and pointless, how MANY times do you need to be told. And still no risk from your sudden memory loss of fabricating an exposure, its not a risk either.

Further posts will be reported to joggen,
