Pleae tell me I am crazy!!!
Jan 15, 2009
Dr.Bob, Ok.I need you to tell me to get over this. Back in September I had sinus congestion and vertigo caused from the congestion.Sore throat for one dau tops. Exactly one week later I had hives, my neck was a bit sore, and I thought my glands seemed a little swollen.No fever, stomach issues.Of course I looked up stuff online and saw that hives could be indicative of ARS along with all of my other symptoms. So here is where the crazy part comes into play. I am in a monogamous relationship with 5 children, the oldest being special needs. She had a blood transfusion in 2007 due to open heart surgery. So my wonderful worrisome mind goes right to that, what if she contracted hic in 2007 and I exposed myself to hit from changing her menstrual pads. I have to do this for her since she is handicapped. While I type this I realize how moronic it sounds.I had a specialist on another site tell me no need to worry about the blood transfusion and that dealing with menstrula pads would just not be an issue. I have no clue howe I came to the conclusion to tie the hives and illness issues with ars. I just need you to help me with this and I am thinking about talking to somebody about my anxiety issues. I would love to send a check into your foundation, is your address listed on the site. Again, thank you for every thing you do. This is a fantastic resource !!!

"Please tell me I am crazy!!!" OK, you are crazy! There; feel better??? I don't feel you are totally whacked like many of the folks who write in, but your HIV worries are indeed completely irrational and totally unwarranted.
". . . I'm thinking about talking to somebody about my anxiety issues." Excellent idea! And make sure that somebody is a psychologist!
The address for the Robert James Frascino AIDS Foundation is:

Stop worrying! Be well. Stay well. HIV is not your problem. No way. No how!
