Hi there,

Yap, you need to get it of of you chest and also get HIV out of your mind......

I recommend you speak to a doctor instead of trying to find answer thru internet.

If you are in the US/EU, there is no chance that you got HIV from blood transfusion.  Blood gets carefully screened for HIV prior to transfusions.
