    Hey.

    So first of all, I can understand you because I've been in a similar situation. I really thought that I had HIV an was quite surprised when the test came back negative. Try to calm down and make another test after 3 month to be sure. Your symptoms could be caused by anxiety or also by other issues. If you want you can send me a message,

    I know exactly what you are going through. Are you able to get tested again soon? If you'll get tested again 3 month after possible exposure and it comes back negative then you don't need to worry about HIV. HIV tests are VERY accurate.

    Do you think this guy you had sex with is positive?
