i hope i am just being paranoid
      #199609 - 07/12/06 12:28 AM

Hello all....

i have gotten sick more than usual these past five months. i first had a sinusinfection that moved to my tooks antibiotics, then steroids to get rid of it...a month later...i got a cough, warm feeling, and later diahrea (sp). THe cough went away...the diahrea stayed...they put me on intestinal antibiotics for a week....this was several weeks ago...they said there is a small chance that the antibiotics can flare up YOur intestines....i went back to the doctor..they said that i will need a colonoscopy in a month if it doesnt clear up (it hasnt) stool is often soft or loose..appetite lessened..ive lost some weight...i am able to eat three meals a lymph nodes feel a bit swollen...and im feel warm at certain times in the day despite the lack of fever (tho it feels feverish).

i am terrified it could be HIV. i have dated a few guys with HIV....nothing went beyond a little kissing and guy..we cuddled naked...and i had a long scrape on the back of my upper leg....i never saw precum on his penis..but i do worry that maybe somehow something got i being ridiculous? i havent ever been sick this long....and i am pretty scared. gonna go back to the doctor soon. any input is appreciated.

Also...this event happened a year ago. other guys i dated with hiv (well knowingly) has been as far as two years ago...last time i got tested was two years ago. i havent had any type of sex since that test.

Actually.....that is what i want to hear....and i hope it is just that....mental issues..anxiety etc.

i have now been sick with intestinal issues, feelingfeverish (tho no fever)...for over a month....i spose a part of me assumes it must be hiv....if i did contract the disease with the behaviors i mentioned..i spose that isnt likely....ugh! but part of me is like...Youre 29....Youre young to be havinghealth problems like this....anyway...
