Nobody will live for ever, even without HIV.
Feb 2, 2006

I read the posts of some people that are not even HIV positive and I cant believe they are so worried about this disease. I am positive since 2001, not on meds yet, but I dont thing of death all the time. Yesterday I almost had a car accident on the highway; I work as a flight attendant flying from europe to America all the time...the plane can crash anytime. My father had tounge cancer (now he is cured)...Being alive is being in constant risk of dying. We will all die some time. Its just a matter of delaying death as much as we can. I am so confident in new treatments that I dont feel myself in great disadvantage with none infected people. Of course I wish I was HIV negative, but I cant understand people that consider HIV the only possible cause of death. I understand they feel relieved when their HIV tests come negative, but they are still exposed to many more deadly dangers every day and they dont worry about them: They still drive like maniacs, etc. Being HIV negative does not mean being inmortal. Sorry but I think some people should read this in order to be more realistic. A susceptible, spanish, gay, male, flight attendant:P

Response from Dr. Frascino

Hi Spanish-Fly-Guy,

Thanks for your insightful comments. I absolutely agree. Now, since we are all only here for a relatively short period of time, any chance you could bump me up to first class??? Just thought I'd ask.

Stay well.

Dr. Bob
