A while ago I started to notice some peculiarities with my body and began the process of self diagnosis…A ridiculous mistake in retrospect. I convinced myself that I had HIV and found it impossible to think about anything else.
The Anxiety and stress became overwhelming and had a massive impact on my health as stress is only too capable of doing, this had lead to skin problems aches and pains etc…All of which in my mind justified my fears.
I did not feel comfortable enough to go to a clinic to get myself tested and thankfully came across the self test kit. After reading the reviews and statements of reliability I was convinced that kit would be enough determine whether HIV was a reality.
Today I completed my test after working up the courage to do so and fortunately the result was negative. The feeling of relief is immense and has given me the confidence and peace of mind I needed to move on.
I know my self diagnosis was a stupid mistake but I am also fully aware that I am not the only one to do it, for others who feel as I did I would absolutely recommend you use the kit because I know how crippling the anxiety can be. Regardless of the result, having that knowledge will allow you to move forward and take all necessary steps to protect yourself and others in the future.
