    HIV Panic

    So this is quite a long one. Basically I have been terrified of HIV ever since the big ad campaign in the 80s when I was about 8 years old. Fast forward about 26 years and I have had to have a routine HIV test in order to start biologic treatment for inflammatory arthritis. I am bricking it, now common sense tells me that I am OK as if I had it I would have had to have had it for 20 years and surely I would know by now, or would I? Can I be the one person that can go 20 years with undetected HIV? 🥴 Health anxiety 🙄 I am actually considering turning my phone off and running away before Monday morning when I am imagining I will get the dreaded phone call 😭😭

    When was the last time you had unprotected sex? No, you cannot have untreated hiv for 20 years. You would have died from aids 10 years ago.
