needle stick
« on: March 26, 2009, 02:55:45 PM »
i postd this under another topic on monday and got a few replies, however im still having a tough time with it , as it has really f*kd with my mind! 

my pers . trainer gave me a shot on sunday at the gym, he was wearing gloves, but managed to prick his finger, i took him to my dr's hospital and they started PEP (about 3 hrs after the incident) he is a straight guy with a girl friend (she i a close friend of mine) , and he was aware of my status before this happened (i tell everyone close to me). 

ive been told that im over-reacting and some people replied that they are surprised that the dr. would even do PEP in this case... 

so far he says the meds have not made him sick at all ... ( :)

i have been poz for years, and have undetectable VL , with cd4 of about 690.. im on Atripla..

i still need some input here, im not sure i am able to handle the guilt im feeling right now.

(had to start blood pressure meds and borrowed some Buspor? from a friend).
