Worried mother

Fear testing son
      #17696 - 05/03/01 11:47 AM

This might be stupid, I know. My son tested negative at 15 months, 3 years, 5 years, and now he is 13. He is of thin complexion like his father when he was a child so I should not think anything about it, but if I think on testing him again I feel PANIC. I have always kept my toothbrush in an other shelf of the bathroom etc.etc. .... Has any other mother been through this?? - It couldnīt be possible for him to test positive, could it?? - I donīt want to test him!!. Thank you for reading me.

You probably don't need to worry, but for heaven's sake, have him tested just to ease your fears. Panic and worry does no good for your health! Hugs and prayers to you!

ps... my oldest is 7. I still have my children tested yearly at their check ups.... just to ease my mind :-)
