Response from Dr. Frascino

Hello,

I can see those anger management classes haven't been too helpful yet, now have they?

I should be hung? How do you know I'm not? Sorry, couldn't resist. I know you're not a fan of my humor, but whether or not I'm hung or if my ass is jacked, I just want you to know that I get thousands and thousands of questions, and really do try to answer as many of them as I possibly can in both this forum and the Fatigue/Anemia Forum. I have no way of knowing which of the past questions were yours, but if I did not answer them, there is probably a good chance I answered one similar to yours. Have you checked the archives? If you don't like or agree with my responses, that's certainly your prerogative. However, as for my "positive bs," I also hope you realize I am HIV-positive and spend a good deal of my life trying to educate people (like you) about the facts related to HIV transmission, diagnosis, and treatment. You mention you are getting retested, so I would assume you are negative so far, right? Let's hope you stay that way. Perhaps you'll even write back with the good news and a contrite letter of apology. Perhaps not. At any rate, I doubt that I or anyone else on your "list" will be hearing from your lawyer. Lastly, counseling for anxiety can be very therapeutic. I very strongly suggest you reconsider this option. And that's no joke!

Dr. Bob
