Hey everyone! I did it, I went and got tested for HIV and other STD's after nearly 2 years of not being certain of my status. And I tested negitive on all counts. I was scared and I had alot of "what if's" running through my mind during the 6 day waiting period. Yes, I had some sleepless nights. Having been in a semi-open relationship that did involve barebacking, I've learned my lesson. I was lucky, but I've decided that open relationships are not really my thing on the whole. There are just too many possibilities that can go wrong. I was in the relationship for 7 years and I've decided that from here forward that our relationship must be monogumous for me to be comfortable. My partner comes home tomorrow evening and we are going to have a talk. Just wanted to encourage ANYONE who isn't postive about their status to get tested. Its often free and you can have it done anonymously. Its part of being a man or woman is about. I feel so much better just knowing. We all owe it to ourselves.
