HIV Anxiety Support
HIV/STDs - 1306 members
This support group is for those who are suffering from stress or anxiety associated with uncertain HIV status. HIV anxiety is extremely isolating for those who are going through it, as it is often very difficult to discuss with friends and family members. This group is provided for sufferers of HIV anxiety to discuss their fears in a supportive environment. Those with anxiety over non-HIV STDs are also welcome. For personal advice concerning HIV risk, testing, and prevention, please post in the HIV Prevention Community.

granulomatous mastitis
MedHelp General - 283 members
This group is intended as a meeting place and forum for those who have been diagnosed with granulomatous mastitis ('GM') or idiopathic granulomatous mastitis ('IGM'). I think one of the greatest challenges with this disease is its rarity and the associated lack of understanding in the medical community. But we can share here - and hopefully make the healing process a little easier for each other.

This is a relatively newly recognized condition. Due to the increasing number of legal actions, especially in the United States, this problem unfortunately will be encountered with increasing frequency. It occurs when a person is named in a lawsuit. A patient may typically report initial shock, dismay, and anger. This is often followed by depressive feelings, especially a feeling of paralysis and lack of power or control over her/his life. Hyperactivity, hyperacute senses and insomnia are common. There is often a feeling of abandonment and aloneness. Despondency can occur, often to the point of self-destructive behavior or even suicide. This is not talked about much but I can personally attest to its effects. Let us know if you are struggling with this as well.
This group of men is for support for those days when it gets hard to communicate with the wives as it is hard to have fertility issues and sometimes we are the one's who have to understand and cannot. We are a group that allows an alternate outlet to talk to other men experiencing wives who are down, upset and basically trying to handle getting pregnant without success. It will let individuals talk to others in the same situation who can provide answers and support. This is also open to alll fathers who have had children and can offer any type of advice, welcome all!

Chronic Kidney Failure in Dogs
Pets - 122 members
A group for information and discussion and for emotional support for owners and companions of dogs with Chronic Kidney Failure. This is a complex and traumatic illness and affects about a third of all dogs over the age of 12yrs. While there is (as yet) no cure for this disease, there are things that can be done to improve and extend the quality of life for our best friends - and when all else fails, there are people that have traveled this path already that can offer empathy and support to grieving owners. If you wish to ask questions or talk about a particular dog, please head your thread with your dog's name, as this will help identify the discussion.
