HELP for those who are WORRIED

Mar 6, 2004

Around two years ago, i was deep kissing someone. Around a week later, i got really sick...high temperature, bleeding gums, cold sores, night sweats, and a rash. the night sweats continued on and off for a year. needless to say, i was REAAALY scared. I spend hundreds of hours looking on the internet and in medical books for the symptoms of recent hiv infection and it seemed as though i had most of them. i was really sacred to get tested b/c i thought i had hiv. i was so sick of the anxiety that i took a leap of faith last week and got tested. i am VERY happy to say that i was found to be negative. i am writing this to those who are sick of being worried...get tested and start LIVING.

Response from Dr. Frascino


If you had read the archives of this site two years ago, you would have realized that "a kiss is just a kiss . . . as time goes by."

Thanks for taking the time to write in.

Neg or Poz, "LIVING" is an excellent idea.

Stay well.

Dr. Bob
