i hope i am just being paranoid
      #199609 - 07/11/06 08:28 PM

Hello all....

i have gotten sick more than usual these past five months. i first had a sinusinfection that moved to my chest..it 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)....my stool is often soft or loose..appetite lessened..ive lost some weight...i am able to eat three meals a day...my 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 cuddling..one 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 transmitted....am 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.

Thanks.

u are being rediculous....if ya continue down this path without proper mental health care treatment for your psychological problems associated with fear and anxiety, it will only steadily worsen, eventually to the point of you mentally unraveling.....do you really want that?...Go address the issues you actually have.

not sure if ya have these issues?...go get hiv tested, and if this kind of thinking and behavior doesnt change with the test results....then yes, you have these types of issues*

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...
