A fellow pre-med and I got to talking about illegal immigrants and health care tonight, and I left the conversation feeling so alarmed and upset at what I heard coming from his mouth. He was asking me things like, "Would you treat an American over an illegal Mexican" and "Why should they get free healthcare?" I just kept responding that if someone needed health care I would give it to them. Idc if they're poor, American, or whatever. For whatever reason he could only focus on the money.

Just learn from that experience that that is NOT the kind of doctor you want to be. Remember this down the road many years from now.

HIV Has Been Cured in a Child for the First Time

HIV Cure: New Drug ‘Vacc-4x’ May Become First Functional Cure Against the Virus

The Man Who Had HIV and Now Does Not

This is HUGE news, and of course no one is talking about it because it is not a part of popular culture. For the first time in the history of the world, there is a possible preventative cure for one of the most deadliest viral diseases to have entered the human gene pool. There is hope for those who have been diagnosed with a disease that may have given them only 20 or so years to live. This breakthrough in the science/pharmaceutical community means that other viral diseases and genetic mutations that were once incurable are now on the table for complete eradication. I’m absolutely seething that no one is talking about this on the news 24/7.

and while this is hella important, herpes is getting complex to the point there is no cure or no way to work with it.

I really need both of these to go viral.

!!!! THIS IS REALLY IMPORTANT !!!!

Except just recently it was found that the child does still have HIV.

Not that there haven’t been amazing advances that we should be talking about.

Agreed

Marrying young is not the end of my freedom. It means I want to travel and see the world, but with her by my side. It means I still like drinking in bars and dancing in clubs, but stumbling home with her at 2am and eating pizza in our underwear. It means I know that I want to kiss those lips every morning, and every night before bed. If you see marriage as the end of your ‘freedom’, you’re doing it wrong.
