First, I wanna thank everyone for their remarks and support so far. It certainly helped bring my anxiety level down.

I have another question, and forgive me if it sounds dumb or stupid or if I offend anyone. Ever since my "extremely low risk" exposure, my mind has been racing all over.
Is transmission through food possible. I mean, can the virus survive in food, if someone put blood or something like that in the food. Again, forgive me for asking stupid questions...

HIV virus in the environment only survies a couple minutes and it can only do so in the right conditions. Getting HIV from good is ZERO risk in my book. Sure someone might say there is a possibiliy but there is also a possibility that you could be struck my lightning, hit by a car, then bitten by a rattlesnake, and then hit my a meteor all at the same time. Possible but HIGHLY UNLIKELY..

Completly agree with JO1. No risk at all.
