Sorry to come back here again to talk about the same situation.
Just want to tell you that i talked with my doctor and she told me that my last post about the hiv from a staple it's impossible. She told me that the HIV virus is very fragile outside the body and survives almost no time on the outside the body.
Just one more question i want to ask you that i didn't talk with my doctor, i forgot. I work at a restaurant, and sometimes i have cuts on my hands. When i pick up the cups where the people drink, on the same place they drink with that cut on my finger, is it possible to transmit HIV, if that person has like a cut on the lips?
Sorry to ask about this again, i will not insist

I'd say your doctor's words are valid in this situation as well -- not only is the HIV virus fragile outside the body, the scenario you're describing is a very far-fetched possibility. The person with the cut would have to be bleeding all over the place for it to present any remotely possible risk.
Did you talk to your doctor about seeking therapy for your anxiety, as urged in your previous posts?
