|thank you so much for answering!
Nov 16, 2003
Hello Doctor Bob. It was almost surreal to see my question posted on your site. I just wanted to thank you for answering it (subject why won't you answer me??). I really appreciate your time, especially in light of the thousands of men all writing to you with the same quandary. You are the most patient person! I don't know how you do it. I'll follow up with another test, to be sure I've cleared the window period (now it has been six months, so I'm all set). I have wanted to go back for the test since I cleared the 3 month hurdle, but it's so scary and the process is overwhelming. Two appointments, two counseling sessions, two co-pays, two week wait for results, etc. My doctor is the person who recommended the test at 2 months, which now seems like a waste of money, and I'm terrified I just have a false sense of hope from it. Anyway, thank you again for your input. Hopefully, I can yell woo-hoo or yabadabadoo, or whatever the word is these days, soon! Take good care.

Sure I know:
"Two appointments:" scary "Two counseling sessions:" embarrassing "Two co-pays:" costly "Two-week wait for results:" nerve wracking But . . . Knowing your HIV-negative:" "Priceless!"
Good luck. I'm quite confident you'll be WOO-HOOing and YABBA-DABBA-DOING very soon!
