it's me, from Indonesia again

Feb 8, 2004

well, after reading a lot of FAQ's from this website and from you, at last i can say WOOHOO!!

here is my story

i have a condom protected fingering with a girl (status unknown), 15 minutes later, she gave me a candy, and i ate it

1 month after, i have a fever (only a day), a flu (3 days), weight loss and a single night sweat. i'm so scared to death, but after read a lot form you and other MD's, i have a conclusion that:

1. fingering is not a way to transmit HIV, especially with a condom on my finger 2. to receive a candy in my dry finger is not a way to transmit HIV (previously, i'm so afraid of this situation) 3. syntoms is not a disease

after the exposure of the syntoms, all i got is just a ... chicken pox plz post this mail as other WW's can read this

so thanx a lot doc, btw, can i send a donation for your foundaton from my country?

rgds, your big fan from Indonesia

P.S.: am i too confident or i just had an A+ on your class?
