you have been given so much good advice, and I'm glad that your anxiety is going down a little. IBS is common among people who are stressed. have you ever tried glycerine suppositories? They are very gentle on your bowels, but can get things moving! They are cheap and over the counter from your pharmacist. Keep up with the positive thinking. Sometimes spots are just spots and anxiety can cause weight loss too. If you don't have the money for a doctor or therapy I can suggest a website called www.moodgym.com.au that is free and helps with negative thinking. Stay with us okay?
Hello, this is Kitt.Far and away the most important advice I can give is that you visit a health professional, immediately; ask your primary care Doctor for a referral . You need to deal with your obvious depression. , and the unreasoned, truly irrational level of fear and anxiety you are showing. I am so sorry you are going through this tough time.

Please see a therapist as you are obsessed with having HIV. That is the best thing for you now, therapy to deal with your fear.
Stop with the 'stinkin thinkin". You are letting it run your life so kick it to the curb. You are OK.
Learn to take it one day at a time. Instead of worrying about how you will get through the rest of the week , try to focus on today. Each day can provide us with different opportunities to learn new things and that includes learning how to deal with your problems. Focus on the present and stop trying to predict what may happen next week. Next week will take care of itself
Instead of focusing on doom, stay in the moment. Give yourself breathing space. Consider what matters to you. Establish a few manageable goals, then take small steps toward achieving them.
For a fresh perspective, get a good night's sleep.
I am praying for you and I know you are going to be fine. I am not sure what time zone you are in but where I am it is 8:32 AM so I am prayig right now.
Know we care and you are not alone.
What is it you are scared of? Your test was neganitve just as we thought. Let go of the fear re the test, it is history. You faced your problem now believe that the results are true.
Good Morning. I worked in the medical field and I stuck myself with a contaminated needle. I remember coming home and crying to my husband. I believe he was more upset then I was. I had the test done and then I adopted the belief that however the test came out, it was now out of my hands. It did come back negative.
Anxiety can mess with your head even when you get the test results and are negative.
Any other physical or mental stress going on in your life right now besides this concern.
One of the best simple ways to deal with Anxiety is breathing. Simple things like inhale to your lungs full capacity, hold it, then exhale imagining all of the stress to leave your body with the air that is exhaled. Getting yourself to a quiet calm place is another way to help and be able to breathe. Imagining a beautiful scene in your mind, counting to 100, counting your breath and trying to slow it are all techniques that really do help.
