i dont know if this is the case with you or not...but i'd say that 90+ % of the posters here have cheated on a spouse or girlfriend and guilt is the thing that fuels their anxiety.

regardless...you did something that scared you ...but NOW it is over...in the past.  you have TWO CONCLUSIVE test results that PROVE that you did not become infected (even though you never had a risk to begin with).

if you cannot accept your status...seek the help of a mental health professional to help you deal with this issue.

I told my family and they helped me believe the experts on med help that I am no risk and told me it is just in my head and I don't have hiv! Family helps yeah they think I was stupid for what I did but they still love me. I learned you can tell family and they will love you DON'T tell friends they can turn on you I was verbally abused by an ex friend who calls me hivgirl and makes me cry.

I think you should tell your family but make sure they are well educated about HIV. Once they also know that you are not infected they will surely help you!

well my family is not educated about hiv and i dnt know ways how to educate them.

Actually the reason of my stress is I gave a blood donation at blood bank after two years of my exposure 1 week later i received a mysterious call from the blood bank unfortunately i couldnt figure it out why they called me because my mobile batteries went dead. I was afraid to to know my status at that time that is why i didnt call them
Today i call the blood bank truing to figure ot out what was in the report , They assured me tommorow they will look into their data to know my result.
Recently i have taken two tests which was negative ....Thanks GOD

So the reason of my stress is that mysterious phone call :(

The call from the Blood Bank may have been to remind you to donate again. When you make an initial donation, your info. goes on a Call-List.You will receive periodic calls trying to get you to donate again. Regarding your Negative HIV tests, if they were administered after the"Window Period" in the state/nation in which you reside, you are "CONCLUSIVELY NEGATIVE".

Yeah the person at blood bank told me that if they find a rare blood group than they call again to keep in touch with that person
As far as my blood group is concern , yeah i know that my blood group is RARE but not very much i guess
let see what happens tommorow if it all goes all right than it might help to decrease my anxiety
