HIV Paranoia
      #245167 - 03/29/09 03:38 AM

Hi All,

I'm still in the closet, so unfortunately most of my sexual enoutners have been through hook up sites such as manhunt. I've only done oral sex with other men. I do not hook up on a general basis, and if I do hook up, I mostly have chatted with the guy for a while.

I've been tested a few times and result in Negative.
I've encountered a recent scare, as I hooked up with this guy who was also closeted, that I had been chatting with for a while. We did oral and as always I felt guilty afterwards. Anyhow, just for my sanity I kept communication with him. He had been laid off, then to find out his father was laid off. He then disappeard off the face of the earth, and wasn't responding to my text messages, and I didn't see his account on manhunt any more.
I texted him to confirm his HIV Status and he's not responded.

Automaically I became nervous. I always do research on HIV after I get nervous, then I start to think I have it or have been exposed to it becuase of my gigivitis etc. Then I think what if my gums were bleeding and I didnt know etc.

I have a friend who works with the HIV testing Agency here in town, and he is always telling me I'm paranoid and that I'm wasting my time getting tested.

Am I paronoid?? Thoughts? Please I'd like your feed back.
