omg feel so alone and confused i wish someone could speak to me about this.
Well you tested negative for hiv so thats out of the picture. Did you see the doctor about the other symtoms you have? If the hiv thing is bothering you, just put your mind to rest as you dont have it. Is there some other reason your concerned? was it a cheating affair, as guilt can make our imaginations go wild>
well it was only three weeks with the rapid oral test at the local health depar5tment , i was cool until i seen on the net it can take up to 3 months, and 6 months, so then started thinking maybe it was not accurate, and yeah i left my husband and when out with this guy so yeah there is alot of guilt involved. I am just scared cause i never had night sweats or had sweat during my sleep as far as i know until after this happened
no i tried to get into a docter but dont have or know of any that are taking new patients. I made an apointment for oct 31st at the local mental health place.
I serioulsy do not think that i can live three months like this, i cant eat, i cant sleep afraid i will wake up with a new symptom or wake up sweating and cant go back to sleep, i dont go outside, i cant do anything without freakin out about this.
Go to another doctor, you cant wait 3 months for sure.
wat do u mean? do you think i have a ligitamate reason to be concerned?
ANYONE....OMG I CANT TAKE THIS ANXIETY NEMORE!!!!!!!!!!
Not about HIV but about your other symtoms as you say you cant wait 3 months.
i just made an apointment but cant get in till novemeber 5th and apparently there is no other way to take a accurate hiv test until 8 to 12 weeks. so my guess is anxiety will just have to stay. idk wat else to do . maybe i can get something for sleeping hopefully
Im going to reply shortly something for you about HIV anxeity so keep an eye out
okay thank u i will be waiting...i know i have anxiety or something in the last 30 seconds i just notice an unusua l purplish bruise on my arm . im freakin

HIV is much more difficult to contract than most people think and if you are sexually active, getting educated about HIV/AIDS would save a great deal of worry and panic, it would protect you and your partner and it might even begin to lower the statistics on new infection levels.
HIV must be contracted inside the human body. The three ways to contract HIV are:
1) Unprotected anal/vaginal sex with an HIV+ partner
2) Sharing drug works (needles) with an HIV+ person
3) HIV+ woman to her unborn child
You cannot contract HIV from environmental surfaces such as toilet seats, eating utensils, door knobs, counters, steering wheels, etc because exposure to air kills the virus.
You cannot contract HIV from oral sex as there are enzymes in human saliva that kill the virus.
An HIV+ person with a bleeding cut in their mouth could take a drink out of glass of water then hand it to you and you'd be perfectly safe. The virus will have been killed by both exposure to air and by the enzymes in your mouth.
It's my humble opinion that you have HIV anxiety, which is very real, and is best dealt with in therapy. And through education.
thank you i am going to check that link out to see other usefull info. thanks. i appreciate it.
Please also check out the HIV Anxiety Group here which is run by joggen. I have included the link. He is one of the most HIVAIDS knowledgable people you will ever meet. I'm quite sure after spending some time with their group, your anxiety level will no longer be in the red. I fear you have worked yourself into a state of irrinational panic, which happens to many of us with anxiety issues, and sometimes we need somebody to slam the breaks on for us. Joggen's your guy.
As for your daughter having used your toothbrush after your encounter, she is NOT at risk. You cannot contract HIV from environmental surfaces. A tooth brush is in that category. ANYTHING outside of the human body is an environmental surface. First, the virus, IF there even had been a virus, could NOT survive on the environmental surface of the tooth brush and second, we all have bacteria and enzymes in our mouths which render the virus inactive and this applies to your daughter as well.
Post on joggens site and work on getting your fear under control and a plan to deal with the many issues you're facing. This plan will hopefully include therapy which is very, very important and much wiser than considering popping a pill to get some sleep.
Here is the link. I wish you the very best, you deserve it.
