I rarely get sick [cold,flu etc]but when I do, I always look like death because it usually hits hard. As a gay man I can't help but be paranoid that any time I look unhealthy, the people around me are assuming it's hiv or aids. Especially my mother and co workers. It's awful. I already hate getting sick, but ever since I came out it has been worse. I feel like I have to tell people "I DON'T HAVE AIDS, IT'S STREP THROAT!"
Does anyone else feel this way? I hope I'm not alone.
