Thank you for your response! I will do the WB to confirm I am not within the 8%. I believe I get two follow up questions, and I really only have one more:
Have you ever known a person to have been possibly exposed and always negative (like me), but the antibodies or virus has stayed “hidden” (inactive, dormant?) for lack of a better word for years and then all of a sudden, they are testing positive or having symptoms with no new exposure?
I know these neurotic questions are annoying, but I know myself–if I get the negative confirmed on the WB, I’m going to wonder if I should continue periodically testing (even if I do not have a change in partner) and then always feel the need to confirm with the WB… I certainly do NOT want to be living my life that way and just want to take the results for what they are without all the extra overthinking. Any thoughts on that hypothetical posed above occurring?
Thank you again for your input and help!
