It's STILL All In The Smile!!!!
Jun 17, 2002

Dear Doctor Frascino,

Well, the 'Jolly Good Woo Hoo' practise is well underway having tested negative at about 25/26 weeks post exposure.

If there exists a person of more generous spririt within this world than your good self then I would love to meet them. How you find the time to help people like myself will remain a mystery to me.

Given that 25 weeks is considered conclusive I have to look back on the past three months and assess what complete paranoia I suffered from.

Briefly - tingling hands, itchy rash, nausea - boy oh boy - the list is endless. I feel the majority of the problem stemmed from over reading on the internet - my advice to everyone DON'T DO IT!!!!!!! Anything that is normal with your body could be interpretted by the medically inept as a symptom. I ask you - how many of us really know where are lymph nodes are what they should feel like - I didn't even know I had lymph nodes until I started overreading about HIV.

I know many people ask you this Doc, but seeing as you took the time to listen to me please now take the time to tell me where you would like a donation sent to. It is the least I can do.

Wishing you all the best,

You are a wonderful man,

A Truly Smiling Brit!!
