Did it. Blood drawn.

Well, I don't know if I want the results, but I did the blood draw today. Hopefully they will complete the testing before the weekend is over. I think I will drink a little this weekend, maybe a lot to forget about this whole thing.

I still have to get the results, but with my lymph nodes being very enlarged, and my previous symptoms, I am expecting the positive result.

Symptoms mean absolutely nothing. I have a lymphnode in my neck that has been swollen for well over three months and I tested negative for HIV 2 days ago.

Best of luck to you

I am going through what you are going through right now. I am pretty scared too. But we'll get through it. Important thing to remember is that if we do end up HIV+, it doesn't mean the world will end quickly for us. From what I've been reading online, many people that become HIV+ in their 20s can live up into their 70s if they start treatment early enough. Good luck with the results.

Here is an article about it from 2008

I just did this yesterday too and I tell you what - I am scared. I keep telling myself that everything will be ok. Glad to read these posts and see that everyone has a fear. I know - whatever the outcome - I will NEVER place myself in this position again for the rest of my life. Hold tight and keep us posted. I understand how you are feeling and am hoping to see you post a big WOOHOO after this is all finished. Take care :-)
