....can you give me info on sending you money, if anything...this scare makes me want to help others with HIV. Thanks again!

Response from Dr. Frascino


What is your problem???? Well, one thing's for certain: it's not HIV!!! Your six negative tests out to 23 weeks are definitive and conclusive. When do you need to stop testing? Hmmm . . . that would have been 11 weeks ago.

Your problem is irrational HIV fear and anxiety. You may benefit from counseling to help you confront these totally unwarranted fears and to help you accept the truly wonderful reality that HIV is not your problem. No way. No how!

Also, remember to use protection in the future to avoid ever having to endure all this uncertainty and anxiety again, OK?

Be well. Stay well. (Yes, you are indeed well.) Yell WOO-HOO and start celebrating!
