Re: test in 3 days
First, good luck with your tests. I don't think you have had a particularly high risk exposure but an HIV test will tell you your status.
Second, I say this to you through concern for your own well being and your girlfriends. I think you should take a good long look at the relationship you are in. Clearly your girlfriend having HIV is of great concern for you. It is this concern that as brought you here and is worrying you so much. I would suggest, for your own sake, that you are not really ready for a relationship with somebody who as HIV. Of course this is your call and many people have long and meaningfully relationships with people who have HIV, but this does not seem to be the case for you. I really think you need to both sit down and have a long and frank discussion about your relationship with your girlfriend. To be honest with you given your reaction, I not surprising your girlfriend as withdrawn and feels the way she does.
Buddy, people with HIV really are people, HIV does not take away their feelings, thoughts and dreams, and they have the same needs and desires as everybody else. HIV is a medically diagnosed, treatable condition, nothing more, nothing less. If all you can see is HIV and are in constant fear for your own safety because of it, I really think you are in the wrong relationship. And please, if for whatever reason you decide that this is not for you remember your girlfriend is a human being and deserves all the respect that goes with being so.
Just my pennies worth.
