Hello friends,

I have went to a clinic 7 months back at that time nurse came to me and gave me injection I don't have any thoughts about it at that time but after some time I started thinking that nurse haven't open syringe in front of me may be she used hiv infected syringe I was very stressful at that time repetitive negative thoughts started coming in mind so after 4 days I did hiv test which is negative then I googled about hiv then I get to know that it will take at least 4 to 8 weeks to identify, I got anxious again so I did second hiv test after 10 weeks which is again negative but still my mind was anxious about this. even I doubtful about technician who took my blood sample whether he done it in right way not and all such negative thinking. every day I have such negative thoughts even while eating out side I get this thoughts like if waiter has hiv and all I have stop outside food. even if I went salon I got anxious about blades and all so one day I decided to take a doctor's help regarding this bcoz I googled a lot, some one say's it take 6 months to detect hiv some one say it take a year . so when I visited hiv specialist doctor he say's don't worry you are safe. I feels graceful by hearing this but when I reached home, again I started thinking that he is hiv specialist doctor suppose If there is infected needle/syringe and it prick me I have spend time near receptionist may be doctor put syringe on receptionist table and that syringe needle prick up in my thighs because I stand there .
I can't stop thinking about this .
My life gets hell some time I think about suicide as well ..

Please guys help me
Is it possible to get hiv if you visited hiv clinic .

In 2021 I don't think you need to worry about getting HIV from a medical professional. If you were talking early 1980's, then maybe.

I think you are safe. Medical facilities are very stringent on things like that now or else they can get shut down.
