ARS rash: Results
      #21404 - 08/25/01 08:15 PM

Hi folks,

Today I got my results back. My 8-week test results came back NEGATIVE!!! God I am SOOOO relieved.

The summary of my exposure was: I was the insertive partner of unprotected anal. While I didn't have any bad flu-like symptoms, I was freaked out by a hive-like rash that started 6.5 weeks after exposure, also my neck was tense and I suspected I had swollen lymph glands.

Now I know what kind of tricks that stress can play on the body! Whenever I'd think about the possibility of being infected, I'd start feeling sick, not wanting to eat, not go out and have fun, etc. But with the support of you wonderful people here, I felt much more at ease and I couldn't have done it without you. Special thanks to Friend, my Window buddies JO1, Smalltown, sam, and I am sure there are others so please forgive me if I left you out. You are all great people.

I will now be known as exWorryWart. I plan to get tested again in a month, but I'm confident of my 8-week test and I plan to go out drinking and party it up a little tonight!

Take care, I'll still hang out for a while...
