Do I have a mental disorder from HIV? PLEASE REPLY
      #161398 - 10/08/05 11:59 AM

It's me again. Sorry to keep making threads. My only "risk" is masturbating with a pair of worn panties, with a light yellow stain. I know it was sick and wrong. No matter how much evidence I hear against being able to contract HIV from this, I still worry. It is ABSOLUTELY PHYSICALLY IMPOSSIBLE to get HIV from this correct? I have also had many symptoms. Here they are:
large rash in armpits. Red, raised skin, and was itchy for a few days. ( I am on Accitane, but missed 3 days of doses when this came up)

swollen nodes and glands under my chin and on my neck

a few papules with a white ring around them on my head

jaw pain and stiffness

a white semi-firm bump on sides of my tongue. My Mom says this is just normal for your tongue.

dry throat, slightly sore at times.

little cuts and bumps random places on my body.


Im sorry to make another thread, but I am just so worried, and cant get it through my head that it was impossible to get HIV from this. PLease help.

Maybe you should go see a therapist because you in no way shape or form put yourself at any risk for HIV.

Oh no. I just noticed a scratch looking mark on top of my rash, and I hadn't been scratching there. I also have odd marks on my tongue. Please reply...

Whats wrong with you? You are frickin nuts thats what.

Like Gman said there is no posible way you could have contracted the virus from doing what you did. You need help dude before you kill yourself thinking over this stuff. You are suffering from anxiety and hypochondria and you need to get this seen to otherwise you are going to do yourself serious damage.

I'm not a psychologist but work in the field of psychology. I would ask that you see a counselor. If you live in a town of any size you should have access to a public mental health clinic (i.e. low cost or free). I don't know if you technically fit the pattern of hypochondria, but you have unreasonable anxiety given the facts of the matter, and when it reaches the point where you are having difficulty functioning normally (job, school, social life, emotions), it's time to see a professional--they can and will help you a great deal. By the way, you're not "crazy"; so don't label youself that way.

Now I can feel a sore or laceration in my cheek. Should I worry yet?

Are you even reading other peoples posts? There is nothing wrong with you!

This person is either winding us up or needs psychological help ASAP
