    The Waiting Is Stressful.

    The first time I had to wait 2 weeks for the results and those 2 weeks were hell. I had a classmate who almost had a mental breakdown, she had recurrent nightmares and was on edge the entire time. I suppose it was the long wait that had us all worried, we had enough time...

    I Was So Sheltered.

    I had sex pretty late in life.  I figured that, coupled with the fact that I had no other risk factors would mean I would never have to face an HIV test.  However, after I found out that my boyfriend cheated on me, I had one done.  The test was really primitive...

    By Default

    I used to donate blood a lot, and they always screen for it, and if they're's a problem, they let you know.  So it's not like I went in wondering and asked to be tested, I just know people have been looking real close at my blood, and their silence is reassuring.
