Unclear circumstance: Circumstances as to for example the time between the time you handled the banknote to the time you touched same without gloves remains unclear. Regardless, it remains unlikely to get HIV, you definitely suffer from health, specifically HIV related anxiety and counseling may be needed. Talk to your doc about your worries.
