Maybe you should have beleved us when we told you that you can't get HIV from fingering. You're a hypochondriac, like many others on this board. There are some who still think they have HIV after testing negative many times. They think their symptoms must be HIV, because as I'm sure you learned in school, HIV is the only sickness that causes all kinds of strange, unexplainable symptoms. Ask any HIV+ person, they'll tell you how they immediately got weird lines under their arms, and an odd look to their knees, within the first 7 months after infection. These are all very specific symptoms of HIV, as I'm sure you know from your biology class.

Dear Jackass,

I know your symptoms are real to you, but what do you do about it. You can't just sit and wait and look at symptoms and grow your fear.

These symptoms might be related to anything - have you had them checked by doctor. I am still not convinced that I am ok. after all those tests, but at least I know that for example when I looked my nodes in groin area - I freaked out realising one was the size of golf ball. I immediately went to doctor he looked at and said nodes are fine. I asked him what's that golf ball doing there - it was a musscle that have been overstrecthed and grew - dessapeared after few days. I was 1000% it was gland.

Now, I am seing mental therapist and had 3 sessions. So the best advise this forum can offer to you is go and see mental therapist - it will help you understand lot of other things not just what you are obsessed with at the moment.

I may have knobby knees, but I don't think they look odd. AND believe me, I would rather have the weird lines under my arms, then having the lines around my eyes.
