Per your request:
Both you and your girlfriend are HIV negative. If you can't accept that wonderful news, then yes, a psychologist (rather than a phycologist, by the way) could indeed be helpful. It's definitely worth noting that a phycologist is a person involved in the branch of botany that deals with algae whereas a psychologist is a specialist in the science that studies the mind and the reasons for the ways that people think and act. Should you make an appointment with a phycologist, as you suggest, I'm going to need to BOPP you again.
