On April 21st 2003, I was on my way out the door to see my dentist when the phone rang. It was my doctor wanting me to go in and get the
results of my blood-work. I asked him "can you just give them to me over the phone because this damn tooth has to come out......today!"
He told me he isn't allowed to give them to me over the phone but if I couldn't make it, then, "your HIV test, it came back positive."
All I could say was, "oh!" but in my mind, I was saying, "at least he didn't say cancer."
