Welcome


Welcome to the POZ/AIDSmeds Community Forums, a round-the-clock discussion area for people with HIV/AIDS, their friends/family/caregivers, and others concerned about HIV/AIDS.  Click on the links below to browse our various forums; scroll down for a glance at the most recent posts; or join in the conversation yourself by registering on the left side of this page.

Privacy Warning:  Please realize that these forums are open to all, and are fully searchable via Google and other search engines. If you are HIV positive and disclose this in our forums, then it is almost the same thing as telling the whole world (or at least the World Wide Web). If this concerns you, then do not use a username or avatar that are self-identifying in any way. We do not allow the deletion of anything you post in these forums, so think before you post.

thunter--thanks for your response. But what about the deep kissing (after brushing) risk?? Is that something I need to worry/test over? Or is it really no risk?? Again, I appreciate your patience with me. I do have anxiety that I am dealing with and working with a counselor about. Thanks again!

I don't see a reason to continue or rehash all of this again with you. I will not waste anymore time on your silliness.

OK. You have more than six months of responses for totally unfounded concerns about HIV.

Consider yourself warned. If you come back with more of the same kind of nonsense you're risking being banned from this site.

Get your head together for the New Year. This isn't the place for us to provide that service for you.

I appreciate everyone's responses and I have accepted the fact that I will NOT get HIV from the kissing incident I describe(and the other incidents), but I have one other question and I don't know where else to go. If someone has been in a similar situation and coould give me some insight, it would be appreciated. Is there any way that someone could have sex with me while I was passed out or sleeping and me not know it?? I feel sure I would remember something about it, but there was one night that I had been drinking a lot and I fell asleep in someone's bed(which I don't remember), but I woke up with every shred of clothing on (down to my sweater being buttoned), the bed still made, etc. I think we just passed out. But I am terrified I may have given him a blowjob or had sex with him without knowing or remembering or something. But I also think there's no way I could have not remembered anything or I would not have woken up with all my clothes still in tact if I had hooked up with him(or I would have been sore or something..). Does anyone have any thoughts on this or been in a similar situation?? I am really distressed about it and would appreciate any thoughts.

The lack of response is making me more and more nervous..Would you guys not tell me if I had a risk? I really just want to kill myself right now, cause I am sure I have it.

If I were you, I would be more worry about being banned.. But if you kill yourself then you won't have to worry about being banned.
