HIV Transmission and Education >> Am I Infected?


worrying myself sick
      04/05/00 02:18 AM

I am looking for an opinion...Please, do NOT say "get tested" as I simply get ill just thinking about it. I just want someone, who knows something about AIDS to give me their opinion on the odds of being HIV+. Here is my scenario. OVer 13 years ago, I had an affair. Every day since the AIDS thing started making major headlines, I have worried SICK that I may be HIV+! I have no reason to believe that this man was HIV+, and he is still alive and well today. He was married, as was I, and both of our partners are alive and well. I guess the reason I worry (besides the guilt thing) is that a short while after our one night deal, I became very ill with flu like symptoms. Also, my husband and I have both recently had bloodwork done (CBC's and some sort of profile) both of which showed no problems. So, I guess my questions are. 1. What are the odds that 4 people could be HIV+ for 13 years or more and all still not know it?2. Wouldnt my bloodwork have shown something that would have raised a question in Dr.'s mind if I were HIV+ for 13 years? I know some will think I am crazy for not getting tested...but I cant...I am violently ill as I write this. Any opinions would be appreciated because I am WORRYING myself sick!
