tell u abt me..i am 25 .m
one more to ask....is it the sure shot that ..one can get a HIV if he/she ever get involved in sex with an ifected person????
No one can give you the "guts" to test...and not testing b/c of fear is ridiculous. Not testing isn't going to change your status....if you're neg (which likely you are)...you are delaying your relief...and if your are POS...you are delaying proper care for yourself. Makes no sense.
Without going into detail, as it isn't important and you will only obssess about it...your "lymph node" symptoms, if they ARE truly enlarged are not at all consistent with HIV infection.
Go get tested...your results at this point will be totally conclusive and then you can finally put this behind you.
