One last question.
      03/16/13 08:46 PM

To be up front with everyone I have severe anxiety and I tend to focus on medical issues, I have however began working with a psychologist to get past it. I have one last question I would like to ask. You see I have a very aggressive kitten and because if that I tend to walk around with a few small scratches on my hands at any given time. What am wondering is how likely I am to acquire HIV while out in public? I am afraid that I will be unknowingly exposed through these scratches and unwittingly transmit the disease to my wife. I asked my doctor about this and he just sort of shrugged and steered the conversation in another direction. So how likely is it that I may have been exposed this way at some point am I being ridiculous again or should I be worried. The scratches are usually on the top of my hands and are always less than an inch in length.
