I am cured

Jan 15, 2009

I am cured of my symptoms of a low risk activity after taking a 3 month test that came back negative.

Back in October I performed oral sex on a working girl, and started thinking that I had ARS with symptoms and freaking out. I read the archives everyday, and still thought I was the one that this was going to happen to.

This is not the first time this has happen, but probably the 20th time I thought I got infected by a low risk activity.

Response from Dr. Frascino


WOO-HOO and congratulations. However, if this is the 20th time you've convinced yourself you're HIV-infected following a low-risk activity, I'm not convinced you are really "cured" from your biggest problem: irrational and unwarranted fear of being HIV infected! Why not try some counseling? Sex is supposed to be fun, not anxiety provoking!

Dr. Bob

How soon shoud I get tested
Help some students out please!
