These pcr tests were done by labcor and quest diagnostics. Every thing has come back negative. I still think I'm positvie

Response from Dr. Frascino

Hello Scared in Canada,

You've had 10 antibody tests, a PCR RNA and a PCR DNA test out to two years following your coworker nookie, all of which have been negative. And yet you still think you are positive!?!? Hmm . . . now exactly which part of "HIV negative" are you having difficulty understanding. Dude, HIV is not your problem. No way. No how. You have overwhelming and irrefutable evidence proving that you are absolutely HIV negative. How you choose to live with that reality is up to you. Your problem is not HIV, but rather fear of HIV. I'd recommend you seek psychological counseling to help you confront your totally irrational HIV fears and to accept the truly wonderful news of your HIV-negative status. Hopefully you'll soon stop worrying and begin WOO-HOOing instead.
