Dear All,

Firstly to John in London..I did'nt mean to cause you grief by exposing your postings on John Hopkin's site, that was not my intention. My intention was to try and point out that there is no answer to your question and like me you are chasing a mirage. In fact it's impossible for you to have HIV at this stage....impossible! If there was virus present the PCR DNA would have caught it (See my posting the other day titled "Just thought this might give some perspective". If there was virus present there would be antibody at this stage and it would have been spotted. At this stage there would be some sort of indication in the serology and the viremna why is'nt there? John why is'nt there?? Are you unique to the universe? It has never happened in the history of the world that someone with the tests that you have done has still turned out to be with that in mind there a chance of 1 in the population of all HIV tests ever. You are have developed a phobia which needs to be looked at by a need to start taking medication to help you get a clear picture of where you are. John to us it sounds like you are continuing to put yourself at risk and thats why you continue to test. As far as the incident with the Korean lady is concerned you are negative. As far as I see you have a partner and your fearful of infecting won't because you are negative! Now it's a leap of faith John, deciding to trustthe doctors or not. There are plently of people that have recieved false poz ELISA's at 3 months with negative Western Blots and have gone on to live very happy lives. John your tests (as far a I remember) have'nt even shown a whisper of HIV infact you could'nt be more negative. Any I hope this helps you in some way......God Bless.

OK here's the copy of a mail that I recieved back from the leading HIV Immunologist in Australia. This guys name is stamped on the bottom of your test results when you recieve them and he also attended the conference in Barcelona recently..........he's [censored] hot basically (I'm not going to divulge his name for obvious reasons). Anyway the mail is as follows.......Oh yea Negative PCR DNA, ELISA, Western Blot and P24 antigen out to 8 months........

Dear Kevin,

Unfortumately, I think you are chasing a mirage. See my responses below in capitals. In essence, I think there is no problem except your anxiety. I strongly suggest you talk it over with Professor Andrews (anxiety disorder specialist). Sorry I won't have time to talk about this today.
