It would be very freakish to test positive after a year. You would be 1 in 2,000,000+ if you did. There has to be something other than HIV wrong with you. You have tested to much already. Let go of the theory that you have to be HIV positive and look at other things that could be causing your troubles. Buy the way the T-Cell count can change by big amounts in a HIV Negative person also, many things can make it go up and down, Stress, Fever, Cancer, Etc.

Having a lot of CD8's is not necessarily a bad thing. Back when I was throughly obsessed with following HIV/AIDS news and reports I would run into people who were doing really well under those circumstances. The offical term for having lots of CD8's is "lymphocytosis" or even "hyper-lymphocytosis"

I did ask the doctors on this site about it once and got this reply:
