The long wait....
      #186343 - 04/13/06 09:56 PM

I just had my HIV test today and broke down while the poor nurse was drawing my blood. I am beyond stressed and this point and I know i am jumping the gun but just can;t help it!

How did you guys get through the week long wait for the results? I am going to try to keep busy but theres only so much I can do and then night time comes.

Thanks for the support guys this board is helping me so much right now.

I know, the waiting is hard! I was the same way...
All I can say is that you should keep busy with work, school, or whatever else you having going on...
Also think about the fact that you don't even know for sure that your boyfriend was infected! If he is not infected, there is no way you can be!
I also prayed and talked to God a lot during my wait.
Hope this helps some.
Love,
Brianna

Anonymous....are you testing because of a one time incident that you believe you may be infected? If so, what was the risk? You may be worry unessecarily and may not have been at risk at all.

it may not even take that long. i was told to wait a week and had my results within a couple days. ironically this is the hardest wait time. all i did was stay away from this forum the best i could. i got burned alot during my wait time as everytime i posted a concern, another window individual would answer and have questions, so my questions never got answered.

it wouldn't hurt to contact your test site about 3 days out from testing.

Just think about Tom Petty's song, "the wait is the hardest part"
