Response from Dr. Frascino
I'll keep this simple. I agree with all your tests and all the advice you received from all your other doctors and all the other HIV information Web sites. So there you have it. It's unanimous. HIV is not your problem. No way. No how.
Stop testing. Stop worrying. Get counseling for your anxiety.
