Thanks for everyone writing so far, I need a few hugs!! That's one thing about me, I always hug my patients when I see them...hugs are good for the soul. Here, I can only get verbal hugs, but they are great, too. How long does this AWFUL FATIGUE last? I'm SO worn out and this is almost week 3 of all of this. I think part of my negative thoughts about HIV come from the fact that I work in an inner city and most of the patients I see with HIV are those that haven't taken care of themselves and I get to see what happens to them first-hand all of them time. It REALLY scares me, because I don't want to meet the same fate they do. Thanks again everyone....my love and friendship to each of you...
