Avatar m tn It seems that Seattle does not have any support groups in the area? How do people cope when they find out they are positive for HSV 1 or 2? I was diagnosed over 3 years ago through a blood test IGg. I have pretty much isolated myself from going out, meeting anyone and I have no one to talk to at all. I got blood tested after going online and requesting the STD test through quest diagnostics laboratory. My results ccame back positive for both HSV 1 and 2.
Avatar m tn Because HIV is the causative agent of acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS), ICL can be referred to as Non-HIV AIDS. As in AIDS patients, Non-HIV AIDS patients exhibit reduced numbers of CD4+ T-lymphocytes, and many Non-HIV AIDS patients have developed the opportunistic infections or otherwise rare cancers associated with AIDS. Non-HIV AIDS patients may comprise perhaps one percent of all AIDS patients.
Avatar f tn Are there people out there that would like a group for emotionalo support if dealing with AIDS OR POSITIVE HIV> I noticed the HIV group is no longer on the group list. I am not suprise. It was so regulated, impersonal, and at times down right rude. I know this is such a touchy subject if there were not regulations there could be alot of bizzare and acceptable calls and comment. I would like to see a group that people can cry on, share there sexperience , strength and hopes.

672839 tn?1305792947 To me, there are two types of groups, 1) Support and 2) Self Help. Support Groups are places to go and feel safe. Lead by others with medical conditions like ours, opinions are shared by all, and comfort is widely given while tears flow. The discussions are personal and individualized making this the place to be when your chin is on the ground. Self-Help groups relieve a different pain. In this setting professionals teach you the steps necessary to better yourself and your position.
Avatar f tn i heard that there are support groups i was wondering if anyone knew of a site i can search for one in my area or does anyone know of one in the daytona beach fl area?
Avatar n tn I have shied away from going to support groups for various reasons but am beginning to think now maybe one would be helpful. Thoughts? I feel like I am losing ground daily not only physically but also emotionally. I have applied for social security disability (something I said I would NEVER do) because my physician refuses to release me to go back to work. I just feel that I can no longer be the "strong" one.
Avatar f tn Does anyone know off any support groups you can go to in Belfast?to talk to people with the same depression illness as me?
Avatar m tn Are there any support groups that meet for Chiari survivors, sufferers in Knoxville, TN. My daughter had decompression surgery a year and a half ago. Since then she has been suffering from headaches and mind seizures as well as fear, depression and anxiety. She has had to quit her job and we are probably going to have to file for disability for her. I think a support group would help her feel not so all alone.
Avatar m tn As of November 2009, 23,731 HIV/AIDS cases have been reported in the country (National HIV/AIDS Program of the Ministry of Health). The Joint United Nations Program on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) estimates that in 2007, 35,000 Salvadorans were living with HIV (UNAIDS 2008 Report on the Global AIDS Epidemic). Incidence appears to have declined since 2004, but there is a fear that HIV/AIDS cases are underreported due to lack of an effective monitoring system.
Avatar m tn The theory of these groups is that hiv is not the cause of aids, and the medicines are really dangerous in long.-term. And as you said teak you have been livin almost 30 years infected...

Avatar n tn 3) Do a search on the Internet for various non-profit groups (gay and lesbian community organizations, Volunteers of America, HIV/AIDS community organizations) that offer free testing. Such groups often have the 20-minute rapid test, so you know even sooner. A simple Internet search is usually enough to give you several testing options. It's not even necessary to do it at your doctor's office.
Avatar m tn CD4s crashed in 2005 and was hospitalized for disseminating histoplasmosis and was given an AIDS diagnoses at that time. I teach about HIV/AIDS in three colleges and local high schools and groups.
Avatar n tn Unless your partner is in one of the known high risk groups for HIV/AIDS -- gay (or bisexual), injection drug user, immigrant from an AIDS endemic country -- the chance he has HIV is zero or close to it. If he is African American or has been imprisoned, that also would slightly elevate the risk. In the absence of any of those risks, you don't need HIV testing at all. (That your partner "would think I was crazy" presumably reflects his very low risk of being infected.
Avatar m tn How do you find local support groups in your area for narcotic addicts. Is there a website?
