ARS and the Worried Well
      #112332 - 10/06/04 12:58 AM


Please excuse me for copying your post. I think it can do so good over here:

OK knuckleheads, pull your head out of your rear and read this:

We don't usually talk about ARS as a way to judge whether you have been exposed to HIV.

I don't know what has come over me this beautiful Monday morning, but I will tell you something here, but don't tell anybody else.

If you are sitting on the pot and barfing your guts out into a bucket in front of you at the same time....... You might have ARS.

If your afternoon fevers are hovering around 102 to 104 degrees F..........Then you might have ARS.

If ALL of your Lymph glands are swolen to the size of walnuts................ You might be suffering from ARS.

If you sweat to the point of wringing out about a cup or two of water from your sheets...... You might be experiencing ARS.

If you have difficulty walking to the bathroom to pee and fall over in the hallway.............You might be having the after effects of ARS.

The onslaught of HIV into your system is a truly traumatic thing for your CD4's, that have never seen a stealth attack. As your body builds an imune response, then it produces antibodies, which is why the test for HIV is 90 days out from the "Infection Contact". There is every likelyhood that you are not infected, from what you say here, but I am afraid that since you had unprotected sexual contact, that you must get tested in 13 weeks from exposure.

It wouldn't hurt in the meantime, to get yourself tested for all the other STDs, as many of them cause strange symptoms to your body long before HIV will raise its ugly little head.

Peace, out.

Sincerely Yours
"Living Positive Since '83"
