I am not certain you ever had a for real risk for HIV. But in any case you have tested negative at 3 months and beyond so you are reliably HIV negative. You have no cause for concern about HIV. So get married, have a wonderful life and don't worry about HIV anymore.

Just get on with your life.

Tom,

Keep working with your doctor to find out what, if anything, is actually wrong with you.

Whatever that may be, it is NOT hiv. You have conclusively ruled hiv out of the picture.

You did NOT have a risk for hiv infection in the first place.

You do NOT have hiv!

Whatever is going on symptomatically has nothing to do with HIV. Just because your doctor(s) haven't come up with a diagnosis does not invalidate the legitimacy of your negative HIV results. HIV is not the problem. Period.

Good luck with getting the problem sorted out.

■Anyone who continues to post excessively, questioning a conclusive negative result,  or no-risk situation will be subject to a four week Time Out (a temporary ban from the Forums). If you continue to post excessively after one Time Out, you may be given a second Time Out which will last eight weeks. There is no third Time Out - it is a permanent ban. The purpose of a Time Out is to encourage you to seek the face-to-face help we cannot provide on this forum.

Tom,

It's no surprise you tested negative again - you were already conclusively hiv negative.

You do not need further testing. You do NOT have hiv!

You never had a risk in the first place.

If you feel unwell, see a doctor. Whatever is going on has NOTHING do do with a virus you DO NOT HAVE.

If you keep coming back here to wring your hands over your NO RISK situation and CONCLUSIVE NEGATIVE RESULT, you WILL be given that time out Rodney warned you about. Seriously.

YOU DO NOT HAVE HIV.  End of story!

Ann

Rodny, you are a special person as is everyone. But you're not special in the way you are worrying about. You're HIV negative. Stop with the drama and get on with your life.

I'm going to warn you that if you continue to return here with more unfounded doubts and fears you are going to find yourself getting a Time Out for at least 28 days from the site.

HIV is not your problem so cut itout and get on with your life. Really.
