You can't get HIV from touching someone with blood on their hand unless 1. They have HIV and 2. You have a cut on your hand for the blood to get through.

You cannot get HIV from saliva, so it would not matter what the man was spitting and where.

You might want to research HIV a bit, learn about how it is spread, and how to protect yourself. I also still think therapy might be a good option for you if that does not help.

Try not to live such a paranoid life style. You have more of a chance of catching a cold virus from touching the money daily then you do from contracting aids. Do some research on the subject as the last poster had suggested so that you may be able to calm your nerves yourself. Life will be hard for you if you continue to live paranoid you don't want to put yourself in a bubble.

Aid Is Everywhere......ohhh...my God
Hi everybody

Maybe this sounds so stupid..but Im freaking out!

It happens that I have a contact with a prostitute...I did not have condom so she gave one to me. I put this on myself ( the condom seemed ok, inside its package). At the end we didnt do anything only we touch each other, we didnt have intercouse. But suddenly an stupid idea came to my mind: "what happen if the condom tha the girl gave was contaminated by AID by her" my question is: could someone contaminate a Condom with blood through a needle or something like that? Although the condom seems to be ok, in good shape inside its package, it is posible that one can contaminate it using a needle????

Please......comments........ I know is stupid what im saying!
Best regards
