I cant bring myself to find out the results
      #70125 - 08/25/03 05:20 AM

my home access tests results are available, but I can't bring myself to call...even got drunk in an effort to make myself handle the results easier, but it was still not enough to psyche myself up to call home access.

I received oral sex from female with unknown hiv status, she was bleeding an hour earlier from biting into her lower lip. So 6 months later, I have done the home access test.

I've read everything from CDC about the low risk of oral transmission, but it still, this isn't easy. I will either celebrate, or plan out how to quietly live out my life in regretful isolation. I will move out of this apartment and get a couple of golden retreivers for companions. They will enjoy watching 'The Man Show' as much as I do.

A home access counselor even told me that less than 1% of people that take that test come back positive. I think about that 1% a lot.

Let me poll you all. Should I get the results this week before I go on vacation (with the thought of totally ruining it) or just do it. Anyone dare me to call?

Never thought a simple phone call could be so difficult. Reminds me of trying to call up a girl for a date.

Before I step outside for a beer and a cigarrette, let me ask again, what do you all think?

Lou-Why put yourself through any more stress? Call and put an end to your worrying. Just remember, in over 20 years there has not been one documented case of a person getting HIV from receiving oral sex.

I know how stressful that phone call can be, but you are really worrying for no reason. And once you call and get your negative result, you will see what I mean.

Life is meant for living, not fearing.

Just call Lou - oral sex poses little if no risk at all.
You will get your negative result and then you will move on.

okay, finally called and received my hiv negative test result from home access. Spent most of yesterday celebrating and now my head aches as I try to make it into work a couple of hours late. I've got a lot to add to this post - I'll try do it when I get home.
I still consider what I did to be risky behavoir - receiving oral sex by a girl with unknown hiv status who had an open bleeding gash in her lower lip. The stress was not worth the pleasure.
