    Default What kind of world do we live in?! :(

    Tonight my lil niece picked up a sock outside her house, which was filled with druggy used needles and she pricked herself.

    My sister has been at hospital as Paige has had tests for hiv, hepb, hep c & a hep b vaccination.

    They wont know for 4-5 months if she's got anything.

    She's SIX.

    What kind of fucking world is it that this could happen - that people so blinded by their own stupid mutant addiction could leave their live mess as waste for innocents to potentially destory their lives by.

    she's a child, so full of fun, everything to live for.

    Breaks my heart beyond words and i've yet to stop crying.

    It's sick, but it happens a lot. My girlfriend's brother worked at this Starbucks downtown and almost pricked himself on a heroin needle in the bathroom trashcan. Junkies don't give a shit about other people, and they rarely if ever think about others when they throw their crap away, either on the street or in a store or any garbage can.

    I hope your niece is okay, because that's the most disgusting way for some deadbeat rash on society's ass to destroy a life.

    More prayers, to be sure. :( I'm terribly sorry to hear this.

    Regrettably, this is the only world we have. No wonder people like to read comics.

    Even more regrettably, despite the fact that it is the only world we have, too many people (such as whomever dumped that needle) seem dedicated to making it worse.

    What kind of world? I don't know anyone who can answer that. Between stories like this one and what that worthless shit just did to those Amish girls in Pennsylvania, I just . . . Christ.

    I hope the kid's okay. I would recommend that she be put on a preventative drug therapy against HIV infection.

    Whoah, back up.

    Are they giving her prophylactic meds? When there's concern that a health worker has been exposed to a HIV/AIDS infection it's normal to give a very nasty regimen of drugs that has an excellent chance of preventing any infection from taking hold. I don't know what the procedure is for being pricked with a needle from an unknown source, but "prophylactic drugs" is definitely something to ask about.

    A couple of things,

    1) the drugs aren't that nasty anymore. There are dosens and dosens so even if she needed some, they'd find ones with little to no side effects.

    2) HIV isn't the kill all it was 20 years ago. The average life expectancy of someone diagnosed early in the infection stage is 50+ years. When I was first infected they said 3-5 and 8 if you're lucky.

    Does it suck, yes. But it isn't the terror it was, and it's controllable.
