In brief: Get treated

I'd be bummed...And angry at myself, since it's such an easy infection to prevent.
Then i'd move on, find a doctor with expertise in treating HIV infection, get my labs drawn, and get started on treatment as soon as possible. I would also talk to my sexual partners to make sure they got tested.
