I'm a police officer in New York State and we had a drug overdose saturday morning. The guy died, and he was shooting up with three of his friends. They were all sharing the needles with each other. Well, as we were processing the crime scene, one of the needles they were using stuck into my right ring finger. Great. I had to go to the hospital for some shots and now I have to take anti-HIV pills for 42 days that make you VERY sick. So...two days down, 40 to go!

We aren't issued Kevlar gloves. We can buy them ourselves if we want to. Truth is, I have used them before and they are very difficult to manipulate since they are thick. But...I guess they would have been worth it!

Oh man sad.gif so sorry to hear.
Just take those pills no matter how awful they might be and in 40 days this will be just a story to share with friends over a beer. Good luck man.

There´s a pill that eliminates the HIV-virus. However, one must start with the therapy within 48 hours I think. Otherwise, you´re done as you said, sigma7... Praetorian had a great chance that he was treated immediately...

Oh, that's terrible, as said above, better to do that than getting HIV or AIDS at least, and after a while I'm sure that's quite a story to tell over a beer like Fran said tongue.gif

You're in luck they have those pills mate, I didn't thought these pills were available. In addition to your speedy recovery I also must pay my respects to you for putting your life on the line man. Very brave man you are for being a police officer.
