Nothing is black or white with HIV, but you had all the classic symptoms of HIV? Pray tell what symptom is classic with HIV that can't be classic of say the flu or a common cold in the ars stage? I'm quite serious if there is one that is classic to HIV as far as symptoms go I would love to know. There should be a paper written. Better yet we can tell everyone there is no need for testing cause there is one tell tale sign of HIV infection. Who needs tests and doctors?
I've said this before and I will say it again for your benefit. If you don't have HIV confirmed by a test and insist there is something wrong with you anyway and it's HIV then you should not be offering advise on anything. All you are doing is feeding the delusion you have and the delusions of others. Not helping not being supportive being destructive and just plain ignorant.
Plus it's arrogant and ignorant to say you had more risk than anyone because of this or that. No where does it say that people in certain classes are higher risk than others. A dr has just as much and equal risk of catching HIV with their bf/gf who is a lawyer if neither one ever tested as a homeless man would sleeping with a sex worker. HIV has no stigma. The risks are based on sexual acts and behaviors not social status.
Case in point many people contract it from their loved ones who both believed they weren't at risk because they are straight or rich or what have you. Never once have you heard anyone in the know say don't worry about HIV cause you had straight sex with a white person who is rich. It's based solely on the act and the odds of contracting it from someone known to be positive. And always with a grain of salt until a test can be performed.
