Re: Worried Sick about HIV

Thanks for your reply and reassurance Kevin. I really appreciate it. You are so right about the problems involved in trying to self diagnose on the web. I know this intellectually but I was so concerned about tropical diseases and my doctor not being able to tell me what I had other than "a virus that'll run it's course" that I started googling my symptoms to get an idea for myself. Once I saw all the HIV symptoms the idea hit me like a ton of bricks and sent me reeling in fear. I feel a bit better after your words, but I am wondering what to tell my girlfriend here at home and whether i should abstain from sex with her until I get a test result. I feel i should tell her my fears just because it wouldn't be right to put her at any kind of risk until I know for certain. It's only been 3 weeks since my stupid mistake, and stupid it was. Hopefully you are right as I couldn't live with myself if I put her in harms way.
