Once I finish my masters in psych, will my aggravated dui felony inhibit me from gaining employment in drug and alcohol addiction counseling?
As dr. Front mentioned, licensing laws vary from state to state. It's not unusual for professionals in addiction counseling to have had personal issues with addiction so employers in this field are unlikely to hold it against you. Congratulations on putting this behind you & training to help others!

I'm on felony dwi probation. Took drug and alcohol urine test last month, they said I failed for alcohol. I 100% didn't drink! Now I'm probably going to be revoked and go to jail. What can I do about this? There is no way I should have failed it. How accurate a
Depends on test: If the test they did was a urine ethyl glucuronide (etg) or ethyl sulfide (es), the federal government (samhsa) has said this particular test is too sensitive to things like breathing in the fumes of skin sanitizers like purell or alcohol in mouthwashes. They state that it should not be used for forensic (legal) purposes. If you don't have a lawyer, get one. ...Read more

Takes time: After being abused by a loved one it takes time to heal. Not only were you physically hurt, your trust was violated by him. Now that you are not being abused now you will need time to build up your self esteem, develop trust in others and to learn to trust yourself. Exercise, spend time with friends or others you feel comfortable with and talk with them about this if you can. ...Read more
Want to apply to medical school and eventually become a spine surgeon I have a past felony drug conviction for manufacturing and delivering cocaine and criminal conspiracy should I not even waste my time or is worth my time to pursue this career as a surg
While a clean record is not an absolute requirement to become a surgeon, it certainly helps. There are several obstacles to becoming a surgeon with a felony conviction. First, you would have to convince a medical school admissions committee that you have the character and traits they are looking for in an applicant. At the end of medical school, you would need to convince a orthopaedic or neurosurgery residency program that you have the character and traits they are looking for. As both orthopaedic and neurosurgery training programs are extremely competitive, this history does put you at a disadvantage. For both admissions processes, it is typical to ask about any prior convictions.
Even if you were to navigate medical school and residency successfully, you would still need to become licensed by the state you want to practice in, and obtain certification by the drug enforcement agency (dea), and possibly by the state controlled substances board. The dea and states may have specific restrictions preventing licensure with a prior felony drug-related conviction.
Before proceeding, I would recommend that you check with the dea and with whichever state you want to possibly practice in about their laws regarding licensure in your circumstances. ...Read more

The last two nights, right bedpfore going to sleep I've felty trembling in my body starting in chest. What could cause this?
Unlikely organic: Because your symptoms are not present until just before bedtime it seems unlikely that they should be caused by something organic within the body. Having said that, if you have not had a good physical and laboratory checkup in some time I would recommend you see your doctor. They may wish to run a few tests such thyroids, cholesterol, and a basic chemistry panel just to be sure of things. ...Read more

Flowy period. Like just blood. Now it's not much blood, just huge blood clots! I don't think this is normal. What should I do?
Blood clots usually indicate excessive blood loss. One episode may be a normal variation, however, if it recurs, you should consult your gynecologist. You should take oral iron and multivitamin supplements to prevent anemia.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex. ...Read more

I have intense pain in my right pointer finger and swelling however there is no pus or redness. Is this a felon. What do I do?
You get seen.:
No one can diagnose this by description. Any severe pain in an extremity, especially when there is visible swelling, means that there is such tension inside this closed space that the nerve is screaming for help. If the nerve is screaming, the blood supply is also being compromised, and that could result in loss of the finger.
Don't delay. ...Read more
Today is the 7th day of my period and I have clear watery discharge. No bleeding after day 5. What could cause such clear flowy discharge?
On minastrin 24 fe. On placebos there was brown blood one day then 1 day light red blood then 1 day a lot of red blood. All 3 only when I wiped. Period?
The brown discharge/blood you saw while you were on the placebo pills was most likely your period, just as you thought.
One of the benefits women that take minastrin 24fe have reported is exactly that- light to even no bleeding for their period. Most love it; some have asked to switch pills because they aren't comfortable such a short or no menstrual cycle. ...Read more
