...continuing: I wanted to see the home hiv test for myself and of course it was negative. I was alone, did not share the equip with anyone but got so obsessive and distraught over the lancet they sent (Chinese company and it took five to six days to receive) that I kept think'n that I could get the virus from the tiny (non spring-loaded) lancet ! Well, I know that the virus can not live long outside a host, that temp and amount must be controlled, and who or how could such a thing happen..be mailed, but still I thought and thought. Geez ! How about some relief on this?
