3 month checkup and BF re-test
« on: June 20, 2011, 11:32:43 AM »
Ok. So I was reminded today that it is time for me to go back for my second lab test since being diagnosed in March.  I need to make an appointment today.  But, now the reality of it all comes back.  This also means that it is time for my partner to get tested again for HIV.  AFter I tested positive, we went back the same day and his rapid test came back negative.  Obvioulsy, since then we have practiced nothing but safe sex, but, I still can't help but worry that I've given this to him prior to us being safe.  Ugh. I'm not sure that I could ever forgive myself if his test came back positive.  Ugh again.  :-[
