hi doc frascino, u gotta lotta worried peeps writing in with experiences that lead them to believe they truly have hiv poz status when their tests say otherwise. (i am one of them). could we all create a chat room where we can discuss this in detail with one another? maybe some of us have better reason to worry than others - maybe this could eleviate some anxiety - possibly create some as well- but i think talking is always very therapeutic. so, anyone have aol? yahoo!? anyone care to create a chat room with me and discuss our rollercoaster ride of terror? i sure would, as im a little tight on cash for a therapist. please post, doc.
Response from Dr. Frascino
The Body doesn't post e-mail addresses, but you might want to address your question to the folks who run this site and see if they can set something like this up for you. And remember, roller coasters are just rides. The scare you, maybe even turn you upside down, but in the end, the ride is over and you get off, look back, and sigh with relief. That's what happens to the vast majority of worried wells. Those of us with HIV disease unfortunately are on an entirely different kind of ride. We can never get off. So this site is designed with them (us) in mind. I know (or at least hope) you and the other WW's will understand.
