You are my hero

Nov 30, 2006

Doc, My life is falling apart because I think I might have HIV. I got a bj from some random dude for a couple minutes and I've been freaking out ever since. I've had every symptom, I think. Headache, sore throat; my whole immune system felt different for awhile. I'm stressed and anxious out the wahoo. But just when it seems hopeless, I read some of your work and I think, "hey, even if I do have it, I can still be happy." I mean if you're helping all these people and living your life, then I can too, right? You're a human just like me...or are you?? I still have to wait a few weeks till the three month part, but until then your website gives me hope with all your Wahoo's and whatnot...Thanks Dr. Bob, and keep up the good work.

Response from Dr. Frascino


Well I am indeed human, but perhaps not "just like (you)," because I am not "stressed and anxious out the wahoo."

Your HIV risk is negligible at best. I'm quite confident your "anxious wahoo" will soon be happily WOO-HOOing.

Good luck.

Dr. Bob
