Help, this is destroying my life
      #267137 - 09/20/12 09:55 PM

Hi! First i want to say that iīve already post this in spanish forum but i do this again because iīm really nervous and a new opinion is important for me. Also i want to say that english is not my strong and if i make mistakes sorry for that.
Ok i start. This is my situation: I was driving relaxed (I live in Argentina, not so safe) and i stopped in a semaphore when i see one of those mans who cleans the glass of the car (itīs common in south america), so even i didnt want, he cleaned it and asked for some money, i only had one coin and i gave him very little money, he said that doesnīt matters, it helped him, and HE SHAKED my hand (this guys are all day in street and surely had his hand with some problems).
This happened so quickly, because the semaphore went green and i didnt have time even to look at his hand. I kept driving normally and at that time sincerely i didnt care for the situation, i met with some friends to play tennis and 2 hours later i arrived home and my preocupation started, my life began to fall.
I dont remember exactly if i had his blood on my hand, but im scared that i could some blood and then when driving putting my hand on my eyes, mouth, nose with his blood on my hand. I repeat, i dont remember seeing bloog but it could be not so much. Also at that moment i was sweating because i came from playing tennis and maybe my hand was not in the best conditions. (at the time of the handshake ). Sorry if im writing too much, im so anxious (this is checked because my psychiatrist asked me to do an electroencephalogram and the results were that i am anxious) and I am taking antidepressants. In addition i went to the infection disease specialist and he told me to take it easy because i was not at risk.
I have fear of that man giving me a prick (in revenge because i gave him little money), but i didnt feel anything and my hands didnt had wounds or something open.
I canīt wake up from my bed, i gave up studying, i donīt want to meet with my friends, my family is also getting angry with me because i dont get out of my house ( i am 18).
In january i received oral sex from a prostitute and i was also scared but not as this opportunity. I took the test last month (7 month after the prostitute) and it was all ok, but now again, i cant stay tranquil. DEF worst times in my life. Please help, because im scared if i got blood of this homeless/poor on my hand and then put my hand in mouth, what can happen? I dont remember exactly seeing blood but sincerely i didnt care at the moment and continued driving.

SORRY FOR WRITING SO MUCH, I AM GOING TO THE PSYCHIATRIST AND IT DOESNT HELPS ME, AND I DONT WANT TO WAIT SIX MONTH FOR TAKING THE TEST, IT WOULD BE SO STRESSFUL AND I WANT TO QUIT THIS OF MY MIND AND LIVE, JUST THAT, TO HAVE A NORMAL LIFE.

DO YOU THINK THAT I SHOULD TAKE THE TEST? PFF WHAT A HORRIBLE SITUATION, THANKS

PD: At this time im watching my finger and its red but my mum says its a mosquito sting, also im touching my neck and i have like a straight bone and my dad says they are not the lymph

So where are the hidden cameras? This is a joke right? I got another what if what if this guy was an alien what horrorible thing could it give you? Alien aids where a little alien pops out of your gut with pippy longstocking hair and pin wheels that sparkle.

You can't get HIV from a handshake. If you could every single person in the world would be infected by now twenty times over.

No kicker, hopefully it was a joke, since a week i donīt live, i took a break from the university and iīm losing the year, the antidepressants dont make effect on me so i keep scared, you say i dont need the test? My main fear is the blood, thaīs all. Always thinking about that 24/7, itīs like an obsession. thanks for the quick answer. Regards.

guasonch please stop this nonsense.

you don't get infected through a handshake. don't be irrational.

if you think the virus can be transmitted this way, I suggest you to wear gloves of latex at your work, in the transport and everywhere you go.
