But this OCD one I am not able to see
User :   oh ok
User :   alright, can I quickly tell u about it?
Doctor :   Fine
Doctor :  
or tell me the date
Doctor :  
I will go through that
User :   Dr Muzumdhar chatted with me
Doctor :   Ok

Doctor :  
Sorry, I would suggest you to repeat
User :   sure
Doctor :  
if you do not remember the date
User :   In the month of May I once saw a couple of pimple like growth on my penis
Doctor :  
Ok
User :   I went to my regular dermathologist and he saw it said it is virus infection which could have passed through using the sme towel or through skin
Doctor :   Ok

User :   he advised me to use salex lotion and use a stick orbud and press on that
Doctor :  
Is it white in color?
User :   no skin colour
User :   I did not do it properly and was just holding the bud it was not completely healed
User :   he said it is MC.
Doctor :   Ok

User :   I went back to him after twenty days and he said I have not applied it properly and asked me press the bud or needle on the pimple little hard so that the liquid goes down the shell
User :   this time again due to my work and shifts, I did take it seriously and left it for three months
Doctor :   Ok

Doctor :  
Apply it properly
Doctor :  
because the cream will scrap the skin
Doctor :  
and then new skin will grow on that
Doctor :  
That is the basis of that ointment
User :   In the month of august I took leave for two months to write a couple of exams and this when I went back to him and he saw it and was angry at him for wasting three months and gave me an other twenty days time and showed me how to do it
Doctor :   Ok

User :   Since I had time I took it seriously and followed the advise exactly and it was healed in two days time
Doctor :  
Ok
Doctor :  
Later
User :   but the main problem was before going to him for the third time
Doctor :   Ok

User :   I did a terrible mistake of going to an other govt doc who hs a clinic near my house since my regular doc is very reputed and waiting period is high
Doctor :   Ok

User :   The govt doc looked at it and said it is definitely a sexually transmitted disease and asked me get myself checked for HIV
Doctor :   Oh

User :   I was shocked hearing that and went back to my regular doctor and then in two dys time it ws healed
Doctor :   Such a relief

Doctor :  
and did you get that NAT done?
Doctor :   PCR DNA

User :   but that one weak since I was at home studying, the statement made my the doc remained in my mind and did terrible mistake of going to the internet and doing lots of studies on hiv and it mentally disturbed me a lot
User :   this ws in the month of aug
Doctor :   Ok

Doctor :  
I understand
User :   as my childhood ws not a good one, I am a sensitive personality and due to this I developed anxiety and fear
User :   my interaction with my wife and 10year old son reduced and I ws in my own world
Doctor :   Ok

User :   for one week my wife did not understand the change though she knew that I was scared by that doc
User :   but after one week I went for a test and got it as negative
Doctor :   Ok

User :   this was in aug
Doctor :  
I got it
Doctor :  
continue
User :   the relief was shortlived and again developed lots of suspicion thinking what if they have not done the test correctly though it is a reputed diagnostic centre and also thinking the day on which I got my test done was a holiday and they had called me to fing out if it is ok if they can give me the test the next day
Doctor :  
Ok
User :   so was wondering if they just prepared a report without doing the test. So in two days I went back to him asking if they could do anything like that
Doctor :  
In a panic state almost
User :   the lady there took me to the the entire center and showed me their facility and their reputation
Doctor :   Ok

User :   I then was wondering what if I get HIV later after some time and hence went for an other test and got my tests done like this so far for six times
Doctor :   Ok

Doctor :  
Sexually transmitted need not be HIV only
Doctor :  
It could even be a simple fungal infection
Doctor :  
So I advise you to stop that obsession now
User :   but about seven weeks back on 27th of august I was chatting with one of my old college friends and we knew he was a homosexuall and came to know that he is working in one of the appolo hospital as a physiotherephist
Doctor :   Ok

User :   he wanted me to meet him for a drink and I reluctantly agreed since i was fre and on 27th went in my scooter with an pre anticipation assumption that he is a gay and could have been infected and went with lot of anxiety
Doctor :   No

Doctor :  
It is not transmitted like that
Doctor :  
Only after an unprotected intercourse, chances are high
User :   I was fearing that he might poke with a syringe
Doctor :   Ok

User :   we decided to go to a nearby bar and made him sit on my scooter for five minutes and was very weary
User :   we spent some time in the restuarant and I told him about my anxiety
User :   he was very nice and then after the drink I dropped him back at the the same place in my scooter
Doctor :   Ok

Doctor :  
Usually they wont do that
Doctor :  
But some mentally altered persons indulge in such activities
User :   but after reaching home, I developed anxiety thinking what if he poked me with a syringe without my knowledge
User :   I did not drink was very concious
Doctor :   Ok

User :   Since then that remained in my mind and did some of the silliest thngs I can think of
User :   I called him the next day, and asked him if he is infected and he told me that he works for reputed hospital and he needs to get himself checked every year for hepatitis and hiv
Doctor :   Ok

Doctor :  
Medical professionals are at risk
Doctor :   but they do take precautions
User :   I was not completely convinced and theen engaged a detective agency to find out about this guy
Doctor :   Ok

User :   the first detective agency came up with a report that he is indeed working in appolo hospital
Doctor :  
ok
User :   I hired an second agency and this went on
User :   I have met n number of doctors for all smallest problems and pyscatrists twice and many physcologists

Doctor :  
It is a clinical diagnosis mainly

Doctor :   What is the Psychologist offering you now
Doctor :   Now forget about it
