I was walking down a busy street yesterday and a woman stared at me. I looked back stupidly. I believe I walked away after that. However, whenI slept that night and woke up in the morning alone on my bed, I had visions that I had sex with this person. My mind wanted me to believe I did and conjured up all sorts of sexual situations. My sex drive is amazingly high (but still a virgin) and I suffer from anxiety and depression. I am worried what if I really had sex with this person and I now have an STD like HIV.What should I do, kind Dr Bob? I am a nervous-wrecked young male student. Thank you honourable Dr Bob.
Response from Dr. Frascino
STDs, including HIV, are not your problem. No way. No how. However, Charlie, you do have a problem that requires medical attention. Your anxiety, depression and "visions" are significant enough to cause you to be a "nervous-wreck." I strongly urge you to consult a licensed mental health professional for evaluation and treatment of your irrational fears, "visions," anxiety and depression.
