normally, that is. but not this time.
I just got test results from the testing service to the porn stars.
it was a strange and heart dropping roller coaster of a phone call. I got tested last week, and the results should have resulted quite a while ago. but no phone call. so today I called them.
let's see, daniel (my grandparents, one ex girlfriend and doctors are the only ones who call me daniel). what do we have here. you had quite a few tests done.
pcrdna hiv/aids test? negative
herpes simplex 1 test? negative
herpes simplex 2 test?
and the rest of the full panel: negative. (did you know this?)
excellent!, but... dude. I mean seriously. is THAT the time you have to pick to choke on your latte? my mind was going insane for several seconds there.
I have to have what conversation with everyone I sleep with from now until I die?
I have to call all recent partners and tell them to go get tested?
I have to remember to take my oral medication every day or risk a breakout? I mean, I can barely remember to eat every day. if I were a girl, I'd be either on norplant or be the little old lady who lived in a shoe
if you're sexually active (and who likes those that are passive in bed?), get tested at least every 6 months.
if you'd like to synchronize with me, go do it now. if you haven't been tested recently, go do it now. I'll try to remember to post a reminder about it every time. though hopefully if things go well, I won't have such harrowing experiences henceforth.
my birthday party was this past friday night. I spent a lot of the evening spinning fire in the backyward...
