Anonymous asked: I'm about to get tested on Monday for HIV, and I'm really scared. I don't know why. My boyfriend was tested before we had sex, and it was negative, but I know it's still possible that his test was a false negative. I guess you could say I'm paranoid. Your blog is really comforting though. I just come read it and feel better about the situation.
I commend you for getting tested! It takes a lot of guts to do it but in order for you to protect yourself and others, getting in the habit of testing for not just HIV but other STDs is important. I always think that being extra careful about your health is better than not caring about it at all. Don’t be scared. If anything, fear is what kills people not diseases.
