Response from Dr. Frascino


Your repeatedly negative HIV tests out to eight years are definitive and conclusive. HIV is not your problem. No way. No how. Why are you having such difficulty believing your HIV-negative status in light of this overwhelming and irrefutable evidence? Your fears are totally irrational and completely unwarranted. If you cannot accept the truly wonderful news that you are HIV negative, seek psychological counseling to help you confront your irrational fears.

Dr. Bob

Another question from the overly worried healthcare worker!
