Pricked with needle

I once again did a foolish thing pricking myself with a needle that was used about 3 months ago with someone with HIV. It pricked on a wet wound on my finger. Am I at risk.

This sounds like an imaginary event.  NO ONE in this world is hanging on to somebody else's used needle for 3 months.  If you are keeping used waste around for 3 months, you risk getting bacterial infections, and it's a very unsanitary practice.  But zero risk for HIV.

How do you keep pricking yourself and with a 3 month old syringe? You seem fascinated with needles, so are you storing and playing with them.
