As I was eating today I had something on my finger and I licked it off. It was dark where I was eating. a little bit after I started thinking what if there was blood in my house and that what was on my finger and I licked it off. What if it was blood and it was positive for hep c or even HIV, should I test/worry? When should I get tested. Sorry I have anxiety.

Also, I was eating a klondike bar and I was picking at my acne and it started to bleed. I touched the inside of klondike wrapper on it to see the blood but afterwards started thinking what if my sibling put her blood on the wrapper and the virus was on it and it touched my blood/acne/open wound. I know I sound ridiculous but I'm terrified. I started going to counseling but my next appointment won't be until mid August.
