1 week to go

Aug 26, 2009

Dr.Bob, just 1 week to go until my 3 month mark. This has got to be the toughest week of my life! I am so tempted every day to just take my home access test, but I really just want your stamp of approval next week so you can just certify that HIV is not my problem no-way-no-how. Your pre-reserved seat for me in the ex-worried-wells club is the only thing preventing me from getting tested right now. My internist told me that I probably would have already sero-converted long ago if i did, and she told me that i am probably negative...although i'm still freaked out about symptoms i'm currently experiencing! i know i know... negative test trumps symptoms each and every time! Dr. Frascino, you are the best. Thank you for the archives, they are keeping me sane. Rob

Response from Dr. Frascino

Hi Rob,

The seven-day countdown has begun! Hang in there. I have everything (fingers, toes . . . eyes?) crossed for you. Hurry up and test negative, because it's very difficult to type this way! Your X-File welcome packet awaits!

Extra dose of good-luck karma is coming your way Rob.

Good luck.

Dr. Bob

What does LOW RISK mean to you and what ELISA trying to tell me?
4 weeks s/p exposure, undetectable viral load
