Wan't to know about your experiences

Feb 22, 2010

Hi Dr. Bob,

This thread is all about you.

You spend tons of time reading and responding to our worries/experiences/complaints. I think it would only be fair to read about you and your experiences.

How many weeks after your occupational exposure did you start experiencing ARS symptoms? How long did they last and did you recognize them as ARS symptoms? Were you frightened?

How many weeks after exposure did you test positive? I know you took a six week course of PEP. Did you test anytime before these six weeks? What was going through your mind after testing positive?

Before going on medication circa 1996 (I believe I have read this somewhere on this site), did you experience any HIV related symptoms? What were they? Were they debilitating? How did you cope with them?

Please share anything else, if you see fit. Think of this thread as a chance to free-associate.

Response from Dr. Frascino

Hello Biggest Fan,

Thanks for your interest and concern; however, this forum really isn't about me. It really is all about you (and the gazillions of other "yous" posting questions). I've discussed how the virus found me in January 1991 and what happened thereafter several times over the years in this forum. You can find this information in the archives. I don't believe reiterating my story again would be particularly helpful compared to spending the time addressing the truly impressive number of questions that continually cram their way into my inbox from throughout the cyber-universe.

I will mention that I've recently begun a blog for That is a much more appropriate format for me to discuss my personal experiences cohabitating with the virus.

Be well.

Dr. Bob
