Was I put at risk
      #236307 - 02/06/08 06:17 AM

recently I had to get some blood drawn, not for HIV test. The nurse had trouble with vein and removed the needle causing blood to come out. She took off the tip of her glove to find another spot and touched a bit of the blood. So of course I now an obsessing that she gave me HIV that way. The "what if she had her own blood on her finger and infected me. or the what if she did this to patients before and they gave it to her and she is giving it to me. This is really hard because my husband and I are trying to have a baby, and the last thing I want to do is have sex, becuase of course I think I will give it to him. Since we are trying to have a baby, I can't go on any med's due to their side affects. I think the stress of trying to get pregnant, having a hard time at work, and this risk has made my obessing worse.....

You know.... the year is 2008, not 1980 something. We know how HIV is transmitted. There's no excuse in this day and age for this type of question to still be appearing.

You either need to learn how HIV is transmitted....or deal with your OCD...or both....

Oh and those gloves she was wearing. The are to protect HER from you.

I have read the 2 posts that responded to my post, and i apologize if you think I should not be on here posting. I am looking for some reassurance that I am ok, not trying to upset anyone.

Iam sure that you are fine, and that you and your husband will be able to have a baby, so just relax your ok.
