handshake question, 12-30-01
Dec 31, 2001

Ms. Breuer: Thank you for your response to my handshake inquiry and fear. There still remains some anxiety, but you have reduced it greatly; you are a sweet heart. I am hopeful that I will not be the first person ever to be infected w/ HIV via a handshake. Thank you again. You were most hepful!

Response from Ms. Breuer

You are so welcome. Thanks for your comment. Fear in the face of a life-threatening illness is normal, but we don't have to give into it. Happy New Year!

I may have been exposed thru needlestick, tested negative @3 mos, more or less
