Wanglepecker's delight

Aug 31, 2006

Dr. Bob,

As Columbo once said;

"one last question...."

I agree that I have tested negative out to 15 weeks (excessively etc.)

It is only the symptom of, somewhat painful, Geographic Tongue that continues to fuel my fear. Many people have told me that GT has nothing to do with HIV and that it is most probably due to stress. I have indeed been pathalogically obsessed with infection for 4.5 months.

The problem is that I have seen references to GT on HIV sites etc.

Can you finally confirm to me that GT is not anything to be concerned at, my testing is conclusive, and that GT has nothing to do with HIV infection.

Many warm thanks,


Response from Dr. Frascino

Dear Wanglepecker,

You want me "to finally confirm that GT is not anything to be concerned about, that (your) testing is conclusive and that GT has nothing to do with HIV infection?"

OK, Wanglepecker, listen up:

1. GT is nothing to worry about.

2. Your 15-week negative HIV tests are conclusive.

3. GT has nothing to do with HIV infection.

Columbo may have said "one last question . . . ," but I have a few other quotes for you.

To do is to be. - Descartes

To be is to do. - Voltaire

Do be do be do. - Frank Sinatra
