Based on your two previous threads on the HIV community forum, you seem inordinately (and abnormally) preoccupied with catching HIV through sharp intstruments. In both, you had detailed responses and eventually came to express understanding that you were not at risk. That confidence apparently didn't stick or you wouldn't be asking the same questions here. But the responses there were correct.
There are 3 components to your questions:
First, was there any risk of exposure? No. I'll bet not a single person has acquired HIV, anywhere in the world, from the sorts of exposures you describe. If you don't have sex or share injection equipment with HIV infected people, you are not at risk.
Second, do your symptoms suggest HIV? No. As discussed innumerable times on this forum, symptoms never are useful indicator of new HIV infection, because the typical symptoms are exactly the same as for many other conditions, mostly not serious. And in any case, your symptoms don't sound like those of acute HIV.
Third, is your HIV test result reliable? Yes. Modern blood tests are highly reliable if done sufficiently long after exposure, and blood test results always outweigh symptoms in judging the possibility someone has HIV. Your negative test results at 6 weeks prove you didn't catch it and that HIV is not a possible explanation for your symptoms.
Your obsession with these issues seems beyond reason, especially in view of your previous apparent acceptance of the same advice plus your need to have yourself tested for HIV after such a non-exposure event. Please discuss it frankly with your primary care provider then follow his or her advice if s/he suggests counseling. I suggest it out of compassion, not criticism. In the meantime, please try to move on, secure in the knowledge you didn't catch HIV and that you never will, at least not from glucose testing.

Thank you so much for you advice
I really appreciate your help..
Hope I can just ask you just 1 or 2 questions.
1/ So even If the pen had any blood residue or say I did not change
the lancet I still could not contract it this way.
2/ The test was not approved by FDA it was a rapid home test but you still think it
will show reliable result.at 6 weeks???
Thank you again and best wishes to you too
"Could" you catch HIV in that way? I suppose so. At a psychological level, you're obviously looking for confirmation that you are at risk, whereas I am trying to reassure you but you are rejecting it. There also is a chance I will get hit by a meteorite, but it's too unlikely a risk to worry about or take precautions against. The chance you would catch HIV by such a scenario is something like that.
I don't know the "Mirates" test, but it is not in any manufacturer's interest to market an inferior product. All the rapid HIV tests are excellent. Lack of FDA approval says nothing about the quality of the product, only about the manufacturer's application for approval to market in the US.
Please heed my advice about professional attention.
Thank you again for all your help ; )
