You're not going to get treatment that early to begin with. Treatment will begin when your CD4's drop below 350 and your VL is highly elevated. It may take 3 years or longer to ever need treatment.
Are you stating that you are pos -or- are thinking that you are positive and afraid of testing before your ready to deal with what you think will be a positive test? I'm also Canadian my friend -Montrea, Quebec. I'm also afraid i maybe pos from a needle stick, what happened that makes you think you have hiv? Listen to Teak, he knows his stuff really well man.
I am afraid of testing b/c I feel I will get a positive test result.
It is these freakin purple marks on my hands they are really weirding me out. The other day I thought I put a purple marker on my hands but it wasn't a marker. Then the marks disapeared.
Also have had a rash on face and neck.
I went to the foreign doc's office they said oh don't worry its blood vessels. But I know this is not normal and I know something is up and I can't think of what else it could be. Menangitis caused by Herpes infection?
If you don't test then you won't know your status. I take it by your remarks that you job is more important than you health. You can always get another job. Which is more important?
My health is most important.
The thing I am grappling with now, Does it really make a difference if I get tested now or in five months. Given I won't receive any treatment if I do test positive????
Why do you have to wait 5 months man?
I don't get it.
Go to an anonymous test site if you are afraid of immigration,
get a test for stds/hiv and then make a decision based on solid info my friend.
Chin up, your probably negative anyways.
