|WooooooHoooo From Worried Well
Apr 11, 2002
What a ride!!! Low risk exposure last fall.You even told me so.
Week 6 after exposure suffered fatigue. NEG Elisa at 7 weeks (I know way too soon)
Symptoms continue w/ swollen nodes on neck (at least I think they were)fatigue, muscle aches, night sweats, generalized itching(Neg Elisa at 15 weeks) Feel good for 2 days then I keep reading that there is a very small chance that 3.5 month test is not entirely conclusive. What do you know symptoms continue now including dry skin, burning, tigling right hand etc.. (NEG Elisa 23 weeks) WooooooHoooooo.
I've been through living hell the past 6 months. I'm lucky my wife has not divorced me and I still have my job, even though my performance has been questionable lately.
Now I know my symptoms are not HIV related and if they continue I will go to find out what they are. I only regret that I have wasted 6 months fixated on HIV and failed to go to Doctor.
Thank you Dr. Bob and to all at The Body.com I am enclosing a donation to your foundation and will do so every year from now on
GOD BLESS (EX-WORRIED WELL)

Dear Ex-Worried Well!
Thank you and woohoo! I'll post your comments to help others with their "living hell." The foundation will use your generous gift to help the Names Project show the AIDS Memorial Quilt in schools and churches!
Your halo just got a bit brighter!
With sincere thanks,
