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

As a high school student, is there any advice I could get to becoming a cardaic surgeon or cardiologist? I have been looking into the medical feild for a future job for several years now and I have been narrowing down what I truely want to become and card

As a high school student, is there any advice I could get to becoming a cardaic surgeon or cardiologist? I have been looking into the medical feild for a future job for several years now and I have been narrowing down what I truely want to become and card

This: This is a great question. First, I would say that you should concentrate on pursuing a well-rounded education at your early stage, and of course, focus on learning the material to your best ability and getting good grades. I would also recommend that you shadow a physician to see what their day to day routine is like. Be sure that you could picture yourself in the field, but keep in mind there are countless types of physicians and work environments (medicine vs. Surgery; hospital vs. Clinic; private practice vs. Academic medical center, etc) there are many excellent specialties in medicine, and although you have identified cardiovascular medicine/surgery you may change your mind. If after shadowing doctors you are confident that the field is right for you, then you will need to identify work or volunteer experiences in addition to your college studies. This will help you develop a well-rounded experience as you apply to med school. Good luck! You are still young, but the future is yours for the taking. ...Read more

A student considered very intelligent used to bully me in high school for being, in his mind, unintelligent and gay. How can I believe in myself agai?

Gay: Don't confuse arrogance with intelligence, some people are outspoken & arrogant but are not very smart but only bullies. Most of the smartest people I met were also very nice (nothing is perfect). The site below has resources in Denmark for gay individuals. You may benefit from assertiveness training and therapy to overcome your trauma.

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

Please tell me if it is possible to get over the effects of being picked on and teased in high school?

Absolutely: High school can be a cruel place of bullying and making fun. If you are having continued problems from this in adult life then seeing a therapist to discuss the issue could help. It is always good to remember that the people that pick on you only do so because they feel so bad about themselves that only by putting someone else down can they feel better about themselves. It is not about you, EVER. ...Read more
