Default I'm Getting Tested

I finally found the nerve to call and schedule an appointment to get tested for HIV. I can't do it in my home town, so I looked up the next closest town which is Shelby Montana. I'm scheduled tomorrow to come in for a blood test tomorrow at 2:00 PM. I was told the results will not get back for 5-7 business days.

I have a really bad feeling about this, but the odds are in my favor. I just worry too much. I need to think positive and not negative. I think I'm going to be OK. Thanks guys for pushing me to get this done finally. I can't go on not knowing.

I'm going to be fine, right? Pray for me if you believe in god. If I can get just this off my chest, I'll be able to move on in my life. If it wasn't for this place I would have never encouraged myself to do this. Thank you guys.

Good luck to you. You're really doing yourself a favor. Life is about dealing with different scenarios and putting it into perspective. ;)
You'll be just fine.

Well... good luck. What makes you think you've got the hiv, anyway?

Thanks. I know the odds are way in my favor I'm just a hypocondriact about this stuff. When I see a bump or red spot on me I freak out like I have HIV. I've read about this on the internet about others who go through the same thing, and 99% of the time they're fine they just worry themselves sick.

I have to head to work guys. Thanks for helping me to the first step, which is getting an appointment set up. I even told the doctors office what I was coming in for, so that way I wont feel so nervous about lying about it. I just couldnt do it in my own hometown.

Still the 1 in every 300 Americans has HIV scares me.

Go ahead man. There are few fears worse than the fear of not knowing. Whatever direction it goes, at least you'll know and it will be in your hands.

Congratulations on taking the decision.

Hopefully you just got herpes, which is no big deal really.

Good luck.
