scared.........
Hi there,
I need some help, i am starting to feel very weird and have checked the symtoms one develops if you're hiv+ and found that some do match. Last year I had unprotected sex with some chic more than once. We started off using condoms & after about six months, I thought i trust her enough not to use condoms. She told me that she had done the test and she was fine and encouraged me to go as well, that is exactly what made me feel at ease. The symtoms I have are: blocked nose,sneazing,day & night sweat,sour taste in my mouth,mild sore throat and feeling hungry even if I had something to eat. Sometimes I feel like there is this thing invading my body, my body feels very heavy & attacked. All of this started last week already. I went to my GP and he checked me and said that i have an infection in my upper respiratory tract. The thought of doing the test is unbearable, i don't think I will do it considering the way I am scared.

what should I do?
