poked myself with nail in room

I don't know why but as I was watching tv in my room I picked up a nail I kept poking it in my back thigh just out of boredom. All of a sudden I started thinking what if there was hiv fluid on it. I don't know why I thought that but I'm assuming that since the nail was in my room it's been there for quite some time and why would there be hiv fluid on it. Also, even if it did leave red marks on my thigh it wasn't bleeding. Please tell me I'm being paranoid.

Self harm is a mental problem. It gets worse over time. I bet your feeling blue, or stressed. might be a good idea to get a tetnus shot. DOES DOING THINGS LIKE THIS MAKE YOU FEL BETTER? Maybe a non harmful way, to get the same result. exercise a sport, video games. If you keep doing self harm, get help. Many people do this for a period of time in their lives, from cutting to drinking to much. it not what you do it why you do it that u need to find out and then work on.
