[Question #4922] A thank you with one last stupid question for Dr Hook

27 months ago
Dr Hook, 

How are you sir? Hope all is well. I come to you with a thank you and one last question.  I wrote questions #4152 & 4159.  I wanted to say it was because of you that I can say for the last 5 months I have been able to enjoy life because of the reassurance you gave me by letting me know that I am HIV negative after the mental torture I was going through with them overdeveloped Oraquick oral swab HIV tests when I kept them, and the next day they would be overdeveloped.  It was because of you I was able to finally realize that overdevelopment was meaningless and the negative results I received in the 20-40 minute read time was the real results and anything after is meaningless.. You also reassured me that my multiple 4th generation blood HIV tests after the overdeveloped oraquicks just continued to prove that I am HIV negative and no further testing is needed.  ( Never even needed more tests in the first place like you told me because my oraquicks were negative in the read time ).  But I have one quick question when I got back on here and read my posts. 

You wrote “ The CDC says if the 4th generation is negative after a positive result from any rapid test , then no further testing is needed and the rapid test would be false positive." I said this was LIKELY to be correct.  and that is the answer.  In your case, I am confident that his is the case but when you ask a general question, you will get a general answer".

You told me before that the statement " his is the case " was a typo and all I need to know is this.  Your going to be shocked I would spend 25 dollars for this but please answer.  

1) Was " his is the case " supposed to say " In your case, I am confident that "THIS IS THE CASE "?    

That is all.  Thank you please answer

Thanks for the thanks about our services. However, this is at least your 4th question on the forum, not the third; I also answered one previously. And you have been using more than one username and email address. Please stick with one or the other.

As in your other threads, you continue to split hairs and play word games. And Dr. Hook answered exactly this same question:  re-read your last comment question and his reply in question 4159. As Dr. Hook said there, he meant "THIS IS THE CASE". So I certainly agree it was silly of you to spend another $25.00 to see the same reply. (But ASHA appreciates the donation!)

The forum does not permit repeated questions on the same topic. This will have to be your last one; future new questions along these lines will not be answered and the posting fee will not be refunded. This policy is based on compassion, not criticism, and is designed to reduce temptations to keep paying for questions with obvious answers. In addition, experience shows that continued answers tend to prolong users' anxieties rather than relieving them. Finally, such questions have little educational value for other users, one of the forum's main purposes. Thank you for your understanding.
