You write to me when you "losse all hoples"??? OK, if you say so.
You're worried about a recurrent sore "through," "groain pain," a 99.5 degree "fernhiegt" temperature, and "swollen lumph noded." However, you've had 18-negative HIV tests in the last 15 months. Exactly what part of HIV negative are you having difficulty understanding?
I have three suggestions for you:
1. Stop testing!
2. Seek the help of a psychologist or psychiatrist to help you confront and conquer your totally irrational and completely unwarranted fears about being HIV infected.
3. Learn how to use the spellcheck function on your computer!
