HIV from a Toilet Seat...?!
Please do not make fun of me... I have read several message boards, I have contacted the CDC... I have read many, many sites and all evidence points to the negative, but I need to ask anyway. Understand, that I'm a smart, college educated person, but this is driving me insane.
The scenario: A few weeks ago (4) I was at an outdoor concert, it was a cold time of year, I had much coffee, and at the end of the concert I had to pee, BAD. So, I'm standing on-line for the women's restroom. (still having to pee like a racehorse) and finally the rest room opens up.
I do my business (I'm a hover-er) get up to flush, and as I'm turning around to flush I noticed two drying spots of blood on the seat (they weren't mine). I didn't sit on the seat, but I'm afraid the back of my leg may have hit this drying blood, and as I keep thinking about it, I wonder what if my butt did hit the seat and I don't remember?! I was at the tail end of my period (not much blood at all, at all), and now I'm afraid blood dripped out of me, and into this possibly infected blood, and now I have HIV.
Even though, there is much, much evidence to the contrary, I have myself convinced I have HIV (who here mentioned the phobia, I have that), and almost nothing can change my mind... So, more reassurance would be appreciated.
Your kind remarks will be appreciated, please do not flame me, I understand in my brain how silly this is.
