it is possible to contract HIV or another disease via a worker at a restaurant
Today I went to a ben and jerry's ice cream store. I got my ice cream and after I was done I then noticed one of the two employees working there had tracks all over her arm. I thought possible heroine use tracks. Then I investigated her more and she had really broad shoulders and was really skinny. Kinds as if she was once bigger and lost a lot of weight. So to me I automatically think to myself, Heroine use and that may imply Aids or HIV.
Now she did not serve me, though she was there before and after I ate. I just had a Milk shake. Though what worries me is her prior touching of materials before i arrived, such as ice cream, cups and spoons/scooper's.
Like i said before she had red dots all over her arms and had a band aid on one of then towards her wrist. She in general seems like a happy person and didn't look high or out of it. seemed pretty normal during observation. I then called her back about a hour later and straight up asked her. i told her that I noticed the rash on her arms and the bandaids and she told me that she had once had congestive heart failure and those were just for blood transfusions and lines and the the band aid was a burn. I don't know if I necessarily believe her, as I don't think that injection sites would be spread around like that and im pretty sure they would not scar like that. the scars just looked like red pimples, but obviously they were not pimples.
So I am kinda worried, and don't really know what to do. Ive read on the subject on the internet but that has not really clarified much.
I mean is it even plausible that HIV(or other ailment) could be contracted via a worker that handled materials in a store and then I consumed them. I just dont want to have the feeling of impending doom for the next 3 months, I aleady have enogh problems with anxiety.
Thanks all in advance, I know you guys can make me feel better,
