Dear Doctor ;

Response from Dr. Frascino

Hi,

Hate you? Why would I hate you?

OK, on to your question . . . .

I have absolutely no idea what type of sex a "suspencion relation" is, but it sounds a bit kinky. Does it involve a trapeze? Oh well, no matter, with your dozen negative HIV tests out to 225 days, no matter what you did, you certainly did not contract HIV. You are definitively and conclusively HIV negative. No further testing is warranted. In fact, you've had way too many tests already.

Your symptoms are not suggestive of HIV. Yes, I too believe you are depressed. You also appear to be excessively anxious and to harbor irrational fears about HIV, a disease you could not possibly have. I would suggest you seek the help of a therapist (psychologist or psychiatrist) to help you cope with these irrational fears, as well as your anxiety and depression. Get the help you need, not more tests that you don't! I hope you have a happy Turkey-day (Thanksgiving).

Good luck.

Dr. Bob
