Response from Dr. Frascino

Hello Sash,

First off, if you've been posting your "I'm so worried" questions here, you've been sending them to the wrong place. This forum is dedicated to folks who are confirmed to be HIV positive and having difficulties with fatigue and/or anemia, not to folks worried about being HIV positive. Questions such as yours should be sent to our Safe Sex/HIV Prevention Forum. This may explain why you did not get a response to your repeated questions. Next, even if you did post your question to the correct forum, please know I receive thousands of questions each and every day. To respond to all of them is a physical impossibility. If your question was similar to others that I already responded to and have posted in the archives, I would tend to skip over the question so as not to become "The Department of Redundancy Department."

I remind all questioners to check the archives! I've been answering questions here for years. Chances are you are not the first person to inquire about a lap dancer who specialized in "sit and spin dirty dancin'" or whatever. So that may be another reason why you didn't' get a response form me. In essence, your response may have already been there waiting for you. You just didn't bother to search for it!

Finally Sash, is "Bob the Prick" a compliment or an insult? I think I'll take it as a compliment, OK?

WOO-HOO! (Not whoooohooooo, by the way)!

Stay well.

Dr. Bob
