Response from Dr. Frascino

Hello Very Young Girl from Ghana,

Your fears are completely unfounded and unwarranted. HIV is not your problem. No way. No how!

Despite any "stupid mistakes," your negative EIA test at 5.5 months is definitive and absolutely conclusive. You are HIV negative.

Your symptoms (tired feet, etc.) are not consistent with or worrisome for HIV disease.

I agree you are having mental problems and those are the very real problems that you need help with. Counseling to help you confront and cope with your irrational fears and to accept the wonderful news that you are indeed HIV negative is what you need, not more HIV tests. I do hope you will seek out and get the treatment you need for your anxiety, rather than continue to chase after an illness you could not possibly have.

Good luck. Stay well. (You are indeed well!)

Dr. Bob

P.S. Go Black Stars!!
