    thanks for sharing your ordeal, i do sincerely hope your health will be restore with treatment and lots of heartfelt prayers...

    Nice story, very inspirational. Pulmonary TB is highly curable, althought treatment is quite lengthy. A colleague of mine tested HIV positive 2 months after having a drop of blood stained urine (from a catheter) land in her eye. She never reported it, just ignored it?!?!

    hey thank you very much for your article
    It was very very encouraging
    though things like these not happened to me
    I was also delayed for my work abroad by some or other reson.
    But now I am in the process of going abroad
    and Hope I clear everything and go abroad soon.
    Hey by the way,
    I would hope and pray for your going abroad too.
    I think you can show the certificate of your medicines and that you are cured and can go abroad.
    Let me know too if you can go abroad or not..
    ok thanks once again for the wonderfull story of your amazing life in the nursing profession.
    thanks once again.

    Thanks for mentioning that. It's rare that we see nurses wearing protective eyewear even though we are told to in school.

    This is a wonderful, realistic & very relevant article for all of us bedside nurses. I also tested positive for exposure to PTB (NOT disease - important distinction). It was right before I was admitted to nursing school, & I was advised to take 3 meds for a year. Actually, I chose to have the test redone, because it was barely positive (in fact, I would have read it negative myself), & I was pretty sure I had just developed antibodies from living in the same house as an uncle with PTB - in fact, I remember him coughing/sneezing without covering mouth.

    Very different having antibodies, & having disease. I retested negative & was relieved I didn't have to take the yearlong course of meds.

    In 30 years, I have never had another positive test, so my instincts served me well. It pays to do your research - remember, when it comes to your health - to you it is everything, & do the health professional, it is a job, & a numbers game many times.

    certainly, i'm glad that you follow your instincts and most of all that you have kept a negative result on your testing,wishing you the best always...aloha~
