I am not a doctor but am a psychiatric nurse for 20 years. The underlying diagnosis is not as important as getting the help you need. I believe it is really important to see a psychiatrist.

Some people may say you are not at risk. My thought is you are in doubt and feel uncomfortable then you may want to consider being checked. Checking with you local health dept may help you better understand the likeliness of exposure. I wish you well.

Medical science continues to come up with changes all the time that ...

I am feeling so stressed due to what has happened the last 3 years. I will try to sum this up ad hope someone can give me some words of encouragement. About 3 years ago I was stuck with a needle artwork and subsequently acquired Hep C and HIV.

Recovery from a stroke is very individualized. A persons own desire to get better and the support he receives will all have an affect on his recovery. I did not have a stroke but did have nerve damage to my spine. i was told i would never walk again but 3 years later I am walking with a cane and occasionally have to use a walker. Physical Therapy is very ...
