First off, my situation. I had drunk sex with a girl I know on two separate occasions. I've heard that she was with a guy that was said to have of had HIV.(maybe just haters. No evidence other then a couple of people) I asked her, she said his sister said he didn't. (Which I assume if she saw this as a real threat, she'd of let me know? Or I'd hear about it more.)
I of course freaked out. Its been 6 months since, and 6 months of suffering. Even now. I have no symptoms aside from what my GAD. So I assume I'm OK, haha.
As of a couple weeks ago, I've had a very minor case of a swollen throat. (Just like a small lump. No pain) and a VERY light white coating on back of tongue (unsure if its worse then normal. Maybe its my GAD blowing it out of proportion. So the last couple days I've tried to scrape it off. It comes off easily. No pain. But I used my finger nail and it bled slightly, thinking its cartheisis... So I was terrified.
And my capitate bones on my wrists have been hurting on and off for a month.going away. (May return. Unsure)
My reasoning is... If anything was really physically wrong with me... Wouldn't I REALLY know? No severe problems. No severe pains. No swelling. No rashes. No puking.
Just the typical GAD stuff..
I felt severe fatigue a couple days ago. (Scary) but I kept drinking water and having Vatamin D2, multivitamins and rest. Now its gone really.now I have the opposite problem. The usual (can't sleep so stay up all night routine)
My advice to all:
This is reality. Not a single shred of uncertainty exists here. Imagination is the mother of all terror. Its not current or past events that scare us. Its future events. The uncertainty that scares us. Simply don't imagine.
The answers we come up with are enough to fill any soul with terror.
