No need to answer - wan't to apologize
Aug 14, 2005

Hello Dr. Bob,

I wrote to you a couple of days ago in a panicked state. You may have remember..I wrote to you after feeling an enlarged lymph node in my groin. Well, I decided to take an oraquick test at the local clinic. Came back non reactive at 33 days after exposure with HIV + person. I know its not definitive, but I feel a whole lot better. The counselor told me that a normal healthy person would usually test positive within 25 days post exposure. They told me to come back in 6 months for my conclusive result, but not to worry, I am probably OK considering my exposure was rather low risk ( insertive oral ). I donated my only 20 bucks to their clinic and when I can scrape together some more money I will be sending you some more. I really just wanted to apologize for the frantic post I sent to you a couple of days ago, it was uncalled for.

You truly are a godsend. You will be getting my WOOHOO! post shortly. Best Regards,

Barely sexually active worried person.

Response from Dr. Frascino

Hey There Barely Sexually Active,

Apology accepted, but not really necessary. Your 33-day negative test is very encouraging! I'll look forward to your WOO-HOO!

Good luck!

Dr .Bob
