Getting tested in a week
      #177670 - 02/28/06 03:16 PM

I was in a very, as I like to look at it, unintelligent relationship in October, and had unprotected sex with the guy about 20 times. Last month, I found out he was positive for HIV. I've been worried sick, don't have a license, and have finally found a ride to the local health center to get tested. My appointment is in 8 days and I haven't been this scared in well....a while. For the past month I've been able to ignore the situation and pretend everything is fine, but now with the test looming so near in the future, its all I can think about. I don't know what to do with myself. I keep trying to not think about all of the "if I test positive" questions, I really try, but its proven to be terribly diffucult.
:-/ I can't believe I got myself in this situation to begin with.

You need to get the test. i know it is hard but you will only do yourself damage if you don't. Once you find out the results we can get into more details but know that if it is poz, your life is not over. Alot of what you will feel in the next couple of days is anxiety knowing you are getting tested. Let us know how it goes!

Can you ask him when he was infected? Maybe it was after October...

Please do not assume that you will test positive, my best thoughts are with you.

Apparently he'd been infected all along, for the past three years.
