Worried Well Says Thanks

May 5, 2002

Dear Mark:

I just wanted to say thanks to you for answering all of my questions over the past year. I was stressed-out over a possible infection in DEC 2000. I took an RNA PCR and 9 Antibody Tests over the past 13 months, all negative. The sheer stress of it all actually caused strange symptoms. Stress symptoms can be identical to ARS!(weight loss, rashes, etc.) Regardless, you always answered my questions about testing and the window period. Now that it's been 16 months I am moving on with my life after my last negative test at >12 months. To all of those people out there who lose so much of their lives worrying, believe what MARK says! To all of those who are actually infected, I am praying for a quick cure for this disease. Thanks again.

"Cured" Worried Well.
