I have delayed getting tested for 10 years.

I am a black male. I had unprotected sex with a sex worker in Atlanta, and contracted gonorrhea in 1999.

One week later I got the worst sore throat I ever had.

Four years later, I got post nasal drip from hell. Thick mucus, awfull sinus problems, ect. Nurse told me it was staph, and that my immune system is compromised for some reason.

I became a recluse, I have not dated, and all I've done is pick at my adult acne wondering if they are signs of advanced hiv.

I have been afraid to go to the dentist becuase I dont want to find out my tooth decay is due to hiv. I have high blood pressure, but have not been to a doctor because I was afraid of the blood tests.

I looked at all the statistics..I did everything I possibly could to contract the disease.

I am about to break down writing this post.

I finally got the nerve to get tested this past Saturday. Its has been 10 long years of maddening sickness for me.

I am here for all of you.

If you need to talk- send me an email. or PM me. I am here for all of you, all of the time. Stay strong stay strong stay strong stay strong. I would type it 1 million times if I could.

I've been there. I've been there.

Stay strong.

Thank you so much for this forum.

You don't actually say whether you tested positive or not
