Final Update On Scared to Death:)
Jul 29, 1999
Dear Dr. Holodniy, Once again I am the 26yr old female who wrote to you months ago with Complaints of Sore throat, recurring bladder infections, Bell's Palsy, hair loss, fever, etc. I just want to tell you how grateful I am for your help and support during the worst crisis of my life. You trully are a wonderful person, words cannot expess it.. I recently went and got a viral DNA test to ease my mind. Negative!!! of course. I am trully thankful. Since then the hair loss has slowed down and it is surely growing back.One of the reasons I was so hard on myself is because I work in the medical field at a large urgent care/family practice as a phlebotomist and medical asst I see STD's all day long, I should've known better than to put myself at risk. I just want all you readers to know that even if you have every symptom in the book of HIV, as i did, please have hope. And for those of you who are infected, I began to realize though all of this that even if I did have HIV, I still had a life to live and that people around me need and care about me no matter whether I had it or not. As for me i hope to put this experience to good use one day. I am planning on going back to school in the fall to finish my nursing degree. I trully see life differently now, I don't worry too much about the little things anymore. I will end this long letter, Thank you again Dr. Holodniy,May God Bless You.. LS)
