I've been having the worst anxiety and depression because of my health anxiety. I had a sexual exposure and a week after I developed weird symptoms and since then I haven't been able to function. I've had 2 HIV tests I've seen many doctors but still think I have an STD. Mostly scared and worried if I have herpes, HPV, or HIV. Everyday for the past 3 months I've been researching 24/7 on these things. A lot of places say that a negative 4th generation test after 28 days post exposure is a very very good sign and most likely to be HIV negative. But then I get to worrying about hpv and then once I stop and say I'm just driving g myself crazy and it's my anxiety it comes back. I say to myself what if it is something and the doctors aren't seeing it or the test is too early. I just want to move on with my life once and for all. I want to put all this behind me and stop worrying about every little ache and pain being a symptom. Has anyone gone through this? Should I just forget about it all and move on? I would really hate to infect anyone I truly care about. That is my biggest fear and what is the main cause of my anxiety and depression.
