Quit whinning. If you do have HIV sitting around crying and whinning about it isn't going to be useful. HIV is a long haul disease that isn't for, as ScotCharles says, sissies. So practice on acting like a grown up just in case.

Hi TrueOptimist,
First, start thinking with optimism, as your name suggests. Your symptoms could be a variety of things, not just HIV infection. Once you've pulled yourself together, go get a test done. That way you'll know. In some ways, that first step is the hardest one to take but go and DO IT. That way you'll know one way or the other, but at the very least you will know. Don't panic if it comes back positive. Read these posts, there are more than a million HIV+ Americans, and we are all busy getting on with our lives and LIVING. I'm inspired by these people, some of whom struggle every day to do the things they do because of meds, and others who are just scared to death - but they get on with it! Let me know how the test goes. Peace and health to you!

Sensitively put, for someone who like many when they first come to the possibilty of being infected is experiencing the same anxieties. Learning to live with it isn't something you UNTIL YOU KNOW YOU HAVE IT. until then each person has the right to be anxious about the unkown
