not intrested in being poked anymore

May 16, 2010

I tested 6 month antibody negative. My doctor keeps asking me to do more tests such as pcr and p24 ESR and CRP. Blah Blah it seems like everyone has different guidelines to everything. I have prayed that my tests would stay engative up to 6 months, however in that 6 months I have not developed a coping mechanism for being pronounced hiv positive. All these tests feel like being around a crazy pit bull hoping you don't get mauled.

I would rather a general enjoyment of life and drop dead then be deprived of hapiness being diagnosed with something catastriphic and dying inside before I croak. What do you think? I just felt like venting!!!

Response from Dr. Frascino


A six-month negative HIV-antibody test is considered definitive and conclusive. No further HIV tests are warranted. Rather than getting additional HIV tests, you might consider getting a different, more reasonable physician instead!
