Response from Dr. Frascino


So exactly what part of "HIV negative" are you having difficulty comprehending?

You write: ". . . or am I letting anxiety destroy me. . . ." BINGO! There's your answer! Seek help from your general medicine doctor or a licensed mental health professional for your anxiety and irrational fears of being HIV infected. HIV is not your problem; fear of HIV is.
