I recieved feedback about my incident at the nail salon and I seemed to offend someone. Im obssesive compulsive which is a disease in itself. I was stating that I was afraid of germs and HIV. Not only hiv but other germs not related to hiv. Im scared of all germs. When I wrote my message I was really concerned and I wanted feedback. I certainly did not have any intensions giving a "slap in the face." We are all people with our own problems and I was just looking for some feedback because I thought that this was the type of place that I could present my concerns. I certainly had NO INTENSIONS of upsetting anyone I just wanted some answers to my questions. Please do not type something like that. If you don't have feedback concerning the issue I presented, then please don't go on a tangent about me offending anyone. I JUST WANTED HELP. Bottom line. I apologize for offending anyone in this forum.
Hello, its me, homerx...I was offended because I have AIDS and I do not take it lightly. I am not dying, I am healthy and living. All I was trying to say was that if you DO have OCD then You need to go to the OCD forums for help, not the HIV forums. I see you have 3 posts and all are on the HIV forum.Check out the OCD and mental health forums but the HIV and AIDS forum is not the place to post OCD problems, the HIV forums are for people who truly have legitimate HIV and AIDS concerns, it sounds to me like you know you are focusing on HIV and you know you are not at risk. I wasn't trying to insult you, I was trying to educate you. There is no need to apologize and sorry I came across as rude or whatever, but this is a very touchy subject and one near to my heart...it isn't anything to be played with or to be taken lightly, it is a very serious illness and a very dangerous virus. I know you have OCD but I cant help but be slightly offended when your OCD is a reflection on my life and my virus...I do take it personally even though I probably shouldn't. So I apologize as well. But I must reiterate, I think you belong in the OCD and mental health forums, not the HIV and AIDS forum.Good Luck to you.
