Response from Dr. Frascino
She bashed you with a brolly in a hammersmith pub??? She has a bit of a temper now, doesn't she? Of course you did probably deserve at least a swift kick in the arse for putting yourself at risk. Then again the "770" and all the HIV-related worries were probably painful enough to remind you not to cheat on your partner and to never ever put yourself at risk for HIV again, right? Yeah, I thought so.
Congratulations on your negative test. Hope your brolly-induced bruises heal quickly.
