2nd Test: 13 weeks
      #22657 - 09/22/01 10:04 PM

Hi folks,

Been away for a while, but I'm back to report that today I went in for a 2nd HIV test (13 weeks). My previous test, at 8 weeks, came back negative. I expect this one to be negative too, so I can put this whole episode behind me.

History of exposure: 13 weeks ago, unprotected insertive anal sex with a man of unknown status. 6.5 weeks after exposure, I got a nasty rash all over the body. But no other symptoms besides that. I was so scared, but with the help of you wonderful people, I got through it somehow, took my first HIV test at 8 weeks, and that came back negative.

There have really been no other, obvious symptoms, since then. I have had bad diarrhea recently, still dealing with that, but I think that has nothing to do with my risky exposure and I have to be strong and not go start worrying that it could be an ARS symptom.

I will be back to report my results in about a week. Take care all of you, and for those of you in the Window, I know it is a horrible time, the body is going to play tricks on you, but hang in there, you WILL get through this!
