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.

  • The information shared in these forums, by moderators and members, is designed to complement, not replace, the relationship between an individual and his/her own physician.

  • All members of these forums are, by default, not considered to be licensed medical providers. If otherwise, users must clearly define themselves as such.

  • Forums members must behave at all times with respect and honesty. Posting guidelines, including time-out and banning policies, have been established by the moderators of these forums.

Please provide hyperlinks with full URLs or full citations of published works not available via the Internet. Additionally, all forums members must post information which are true and correct to their knowledge.

Not sure what forum to post this in..but since i was a semi-permanent "worry well" resident in the am I infected I just figured I'd post here, moderators can move this thread to another forum if they want to.

I just wanted to say thanks for all the people who put up with my bs and silly worries I had years ago, particularly back in 2004, I'm not sure why my mind was always going haywire, but I guess it was a midlife crisis or something.  lol ;D ;D

over the past 2 years, i've calmed down, and learned through therapy to rationally look at things, and my life has returned to some sort of normalcy, and i'm not always on edge thinking of "what ifs".  I look back on the things I worried about and just laugh at how silly those things really were.

I hope everyone here that helped me is doing well, and thank you all for doing a great job at what you do, and thank those who run this site for all the scientifically sound information and for giving those out there with concern a place for comfort.  Thanks again.  take care

That's a helpful post to those of us that are worrying.  In my case, I have had a full range of symptoms and can't move unless the symptoms go

Did you have a similar situation and come out the other side?
