Very shooken up need some support

Hi I posted here along time ago, last Monday I visited the local clinic in search for some insight on what may be causing my skin rashes. I told the Dr. about how I am frightened it might be HIV and he quickly suggested I should test. I said no due to financial issues but in reality I just didn't want to find out their I would have broken down crying. I saw at the local cvs store they have home tests so I will do that instead. Can someone please give me some support I have been in my room deprEssed since last week.. I'm feeling Loss of hope. Even the doctor said people don't get rashes out of the blue for nothing.. I'm so very depressed.. And I thought oral was no big deal .. I have regret

Re: Very shooken up need some support

Your last thread was quiet clear about your zero risk. If your getting stressed because of this that may explain your rashes? So just take a test for peace of mind and when you get your negative result you will hav eon eless thing to worry over. Their are plnety of clinics that offer free testing, so it wil not cost you a penny.

I'm not a doctor but even I know that is a completely false statement. Your doctor has never heard of an allergic reaction, which is like a million more times common than HIV and like a million times more likely in your case? I have a friend who breaks out in hives every time she is slightly stressed out. That's what stress can and does do to your body. Your doctor, if he was worth anything, which he is clearly not, should have known this and told you instead of spreading a false statement that just caused you more worry instead of helping you to stop worrying! Find a new doc, seriously.

you should see a skin doctor for your rash.
