I understand, of course, why you feel worried, at discovering there may have been more of a risk than you realized, in the past. You must discuss this with the people who did the HIV testing for you, so they can explain how reliable the testing was in these circumstances. As you have become so pre-occupied with this fear of the disease, it would be wise for you to see a good counsellor, especially one with experience in helping people with problems relating to HIV/AIDS, including the worried well.
