Sleeplessness, suicidal. Pregnancy test, HIV test, two positive, one negative. What does that mean?

Hi I got tested for hiv yesterday by a haart nurse and she used a rapid test.I don`t think she knew what she was doing as I heard her over the phone saying ``I know how to read it I know how to read it`` at the end of the 20 mins,she told me that my test results came up as a pregnancy test and that it showed 2 positive and 1 negative.I did not understand a thing about that diagnosis and asked her if it meant I was hiv positive or negative she said I was negative but then why did she tell me 2 positive and 1 negative?What does that mean?I have not been able to sleep or eat since then and am very suicidal.I need clarifications please.She said the red line was negative.

Thanks for your query. There are lot of HIV tests available, usually screening tests are RAPID , ELISA have false positive results also, so for confirmation we go for confirmatory tests like WESTERN BLOT and RADIO-IMMUNOASSAY. So just relax and get this test done. please dont worry too much. Have faith in life, and hope in GOD.

I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you. In case of any doubt, I will be available for follow ups.
Wish you good health.
