Hey guys,
ok, im keep this concise, Im a guy in my mid 20s, just finished school actually.

the problem is, Im scared of HIV infection, I've had an "accident" one week ago, I ordered pizza and after I paid the pizza guy, I *********d. However, afterward I realized I didn't wash my hand while I was **********, and I touched the dorrknob and pizza box, which the pizza guy also touched the pizza box and doorknob. Also, I saw a slight "red stain" on the pizza box, so I suspect it was blood.

therefore, Im worried my hand has blood from the pizza guy, and I could possibly get infected by ********** without washing my hand.

Im super worried since then, what do I do?

I didn't really understand the ***** part of your message, but will reply nonetheless.

Unless the pizza guy had an open cut, and you had an open cut also, there is no danger of HIV infection. If you still feel unsure, go to your doctor and ask for an HIV test. they are very simple nowadays.

The red spot on the pizza box was probably tomato sauce. Just a guess.

I hope you find peace of mind.

the ****** part means I was "pleasurring" myself as how guys normally do it.
Also, by "open cut" I assume you mean fresh bleeding wound?
I dont know bout him, but I didnt notice I had any noticeble wound,
the thing is, I worry my hand was sticked with his "possible blood" while I was "pleassuring myself" down there.
and I jusr had this accident last week, so a test would have to wait for least another 5 weeks or so.
I did research on this topic, and it seems like my chances for getting infectef was nearly impossible,

therefore, Even I know the chance is almost zero, but I still worry a lot. so, I think im not coping this situation with a healthy mind, and thats the main reason for why im posting on here.

Hello Conanyx and welcome!

I am sorry to hear of the worries that you are burdened with currently. Anxiety does cause our rational thinking to become challenged...

...and even if we know we are not at risk for what we fear...the fear remains.

Please see our Resources at the top of the main forum page here for great self help material to work with.

Contradicting the anxious thoughts through the use of Therapy Worksheets and Positive Mantras/Affirmations will make a big difference in how you feel.

If you find you need further help, consider talking with your doctor about your treatment options for anxiety management.

You are going to be alright...get started on those coping skills today...and post with us anytime for support.

If you got AIDS that easily, we'd all have found a way to catch it by now.
