Positive I'm dying

Jun 24, 2013

Never been this messed up before in my life, starting to have not good thoughts about my life. I had unprotected vaginal sex with a girl was healthy before and after my whole life is ruined. I've been tested for all stds out to 7 months along with hepatitis. All negative, as well as htlv 1/2. I tested negative on hiv antibody tests 7 times out to 10 months after exposure and all negative. Tried moving on with my life with my gf and now I infected her because I'm not producing antibodies for some unknown reason. I've always been an athlete, now I have nothing. :( and my gf has a child already and I just ruined her life because I kept getting told there was nothing wrong with me. I'm so lost and just wanna be better. Test are apparantly so sensitive yet they have missed me now seven times out to 10 months. It'll be one year this Sunday. All these symptoms have slowly came on and have not went away. All symptoms scream hiv: very light stools like clay colored very light brown, severe eye floaters, white coated tongue, weird body rashes, slow healing/easy bruising, high blood pressure, severe muscle twitching/aching, bothersome urethra. So plz after all those symptoms tell me it's not hiv.

Response from Ms. Southall

Hi I'm somewhat confused on your question. Are you stating that your girlfriend has tested HIV positive? And that you are concerned that it is from you? From what you have described all of you testing does show that you are HIV free. Everyone infected with HIV develop antibodies. The guidelines for testing are to be tested 90 days after possible exposure and the results are conclusive. At 7 months your test are conclusive that you do not have HIV. I would recommend that you seek an evaluation from your health care provider to see what else may be going on.

Be well, Shannon
