Thanks for your follow up.
To be frank, if you have AIDS, waiting to get tested puts you a greater risk of death. Testing and treatment of your medical condition can and does help.
Take a look at TheBody's ASOfinder (ASOfinder.com) for a list of local agencies (not necessarily doctors) who can help you with your concerns.
Good luck, BY
