    I'm curious if any bottoms have ever got rectal chlamydia. If so, could you explain how they tested it since most STD clinics don't do the anal swabs, and if they do, they only test for gonorrhea? I am not sure if I should waste my time with the STD clinic (they have a nurse Ratchet there who is completely judgmental and not nice with the anal swab for gonorrhea, that she administered once without my consent or need) or just go to university health services and get a doctor to evaluate me. I let a top stick it in without a rubber for a bit recently, but he didn't cum. So sue me. I fucked up on my safe sex habit. I'm sure you have never fucked up either.

    I have no symptoms in sexual areas--just I wake up with my left eye dry and infected-looking with mucus (kind of like pink eye), but I saw a doctor about it last week who said it was just dry eye (but he's been wrong before, not sure why I keep seeing him since he doesn't even ask any questions). I also have had pain in my knees that went away, and pain in my wrists that went away, and psoriasis/eczema on my left arm (but couldn't all that be due to weather changes? I've had eczema before). Last time I had chlamydia, I had a minor itch at the base of my penis (that I ignored because it was on a scale of 2/10 for itchiness), but that was clearly a penile infection. I got the same symptoms last time--dry eye, achy joints, itchy palms--which if you google around, could be called "Reiter's Syndrome" or "Reactive Arthritis," one of the causes which is chlamydia.

    I know I had it tested during an STD screen, some time back. But I can't recall any swab samples - just blood and urine. I could be wrong though. It's been a few years.

    Well I'm pretty sure I have some sort of autoimmune disease such as Rheumatoid Arthritis or Sjögren's syndrome. My achy joints went away when I came back to Austin, and now I just have the eye thing. I got STD tested and I have nothing, as usual--looks like I lucked out.

    Now I just have scratchy eyes...I put eye drops in like every 10 min and it is unbearable. I can't wear contacts.

    It turns out, after being tested, that I have absolutely nothing and all my symptoms are anxiety-related and environmental related (the a/c guy came and said I have my heat cranked up higher than most people do in the winter...I had it at 75...most people do 68-70 and wear clothes around the house). So the dry eye is going away...

    Quit reading all the online medical websites for symptoms....you are going to think you have a dozen different diseases.....and imagine yourself into sickness. No more unprotected sex! You know the reasons....how many lessons do you need?icon_rolleyes.gif

    I like to walk around naked at home. In the summer I keep the cool at 80...which is too hot for some people. I have low body fat and fur.

    Yes, I know unprotected sex is bad. That's why people do it.
