I posted that for YOU.  We can't keep answering every anxiety driven question you come up with.  You are obsessed with HIV, you need to seek help, but of course, we've already told you that, too.

Kindly move on.

You have started 20 threads in 12 days, with 98% of them being about HIV (even the ones that aren't immediately about HIV end up there).  You have a total of 80 posts in 12 days.  You have already mentioned numerous times that you think you have OCD, what does 20 new threads in 12 days tell you?

Seriously, the writing is on the wall.  If you keep ignoring this and refuse to seek help, you're going to end up in a BAD BAD place.  I've got a lifetime's worth of experience with anxiety, it's nothing to mess with.  Your worries are misplaced.  HIV is not your concern, anixety (and very possibly a very severe case of OCD) IS.  You need to shut your computer down, this is becoming almost addictive behavior.

Get some help, and start helping yourself by moving on.
