WARM FUZZES, AND SHEAP
      #11350 - 10/25/00 12:03 PM

This board is not a good place for those of you looking for answer to real questions about real exposure. Most of the people posting here think, Low risk is sitting on a public toilet seats or getting a peck from a strange uncle. If you need answers, stay of the internet and see an ID doctor.

While I think your advice is good (a medical doctor is the best place to go with medical questions), I disagree that everyone that comes here has worries about "invisible blood" or casual contact. Many have had sexual encounters that brought them to worry about hiv exposure and hence come to this site. Unfortunately, the internal paranoia and need for absolute certainty in medical testing causes some to go down paths of finding every loophole they can. While these few people may generate a lot of posts on their "bad" days, by and large people come here for comfort while they wait out 12 weeks of self-induced stress.
