Is kissing a high-risk behavior, low-risk behavior, or a no-risk behavior for contracting hiv? I'm a high school student and i'm taking a health & physical education course. I'm having a hard time finding the answer to this question.

Is kissing a high-risk behavior, low-risk behavior, or a no-risk behavior for contracting hiv? I'm a high school student and i'm taking a health & physical education course. I'm having a hard time finding the answer to this question.

According : According to the center for disease control (one of the best sources for accurate information): "it depends on the type of kissing. There is no risk from closed-mouth kissing. There is an extremely low-risk from deep, open-mouth kissing if there are sores or bleeding gums and blood is exchanged. Therefore, persons living with HIV should avoid this behavior with a non-infected partner." for the sake of your homework, i'd go with no-risk. Below i've attached the cdc website on HIV transmission. Maybe you'll get extra credit for specifying the no-risk vs. Low risk behaviors. ...Read more

I'm in high school and just got diagnoesed with diabetes. What should I tel my friends?

I'm in high school and just got diagnoesed with diabetes.  What should I tel my friends?

The truth: Our teenage patients are sometimes embarrassed or reluctant to discuss diabetes with their peers. It is so much easier and better for the teens when they're open about it. Friends can be the best support available. Because friends care, they might help you remember to test and take insulin. They get good at recognizing lows. No one has complained about their friends "getting in their face" to me. ...Read more

Should i get help for my cutting? I've been cutting since middle school and now i'm in high school

Should i get help for my cutting? I've been cutting since middle school and now i'm in high school

That : That is a definite yes. You are likely cutting yourself as a coping mechanism. Some people cut to feel something, if they feel empty inside. Some people cut, so that they will feel physical pain to distract them from their emotional pain. Some people cut in the belief that it will let bad things flow out them. Regardless of the reason, even if the cutting allows a sense of relief, the person who cuts is not happy. It is not a healthy coping mechanism. Therapy (medication or counseling) can help a lot. I hope that you get help. Things can get better. ...Read more
