Is this really happening?
      07/18/07 02:04 PM

I just went to emergency last sunday for a appendix acute infection, nothing out of common, they decide to take the appendix out with a surgery. But while making tests prior the surgery I needed at the time, the doctors came with an ELISA positive result. Doctors said to me that they can't be sure about the results because it could be a false positive, this knowing I'm taking a pill called Roaccutane, that the virus load was quite high and that I have tested negative in september last year. They repeat the ELISA test and it gave the same results. So they make me the Western Blot test and we will know the results next monday. I'm quite frightened and also I feel quite alone. I know I've been in risk situations, not that risky but risk situations anyway. What really frightened me was that when I got home from the hospital, yesterday, just with the stiches from the surgery (that nowadays is more easy and less dangerous), I went into Internet searching about HIV and then checked the copy of the blood tests I took home with me. It shows that my lymphocytes were at 15,2%. That seems to be very low and quite an indicative of being HIV-positive. And knowing I tested negative less than a year ago, it's a very stressing result. I'm 19 years old and live alone in a city far my family. I don't wanna come back there and don't wanna see my life stoped. I just come here to see if someone could help me relieve this anguish. Thanks.
