I had unprotected sex with a partner of unknown status (vaginal intercourse). Started worrying immediately. I had little things like I'd see a spot on my arm and swear it was a rash....I had headaches (most likely from hours on the internet looking up HIV symptoms), was constantly checking my body for rashes...my mouth for thrush....it was borderline OCD. I finally went to my doctor and told them about the incident....they said not to worry...they were sure I was fine....but that doesn't make anyone feel better. so I asked for a test and wooo hoo, it was neg....but the wait for the results was HELL on earth. I cried, and didn't sleep. I felt like I could not go on...each day was a struggle. This board helped sooooo much from beginning to end. The people here are so kind and caring and every once in a while will make you laugh when you need it most. So many people come here worried...and end up being fine (hence the term worried well). I'm sure we will add you to the list soon....be strong....if you have a good friend, confide in them if you are comfortable...having someone to be there when you freak out is priceless.
