You're right. I'm not sure if I'm giving him false hope or myself, probably both. Denial, eh? Although he has yet to get the results of the ELISA test. He tested positive from a rapid test and is awaiting the results of what I can only asssume is the ELISA test. I'm learing alot on this site, so thanks, and please forgive my ignorance my knowledge of HIV is limited to a blanket awareness of just getting tested every six months or so.
