  • I'm trying to find out if I have boils without going to the drs. They are sore bumps with fluid inside of them on my fingers. I just had one on my arm that I caught on something and it broke open. They are very sore. I have lupus and fibromyalgia. Thank you.

  • From this study (6 months ago):

  • Don't handle busy, large crowds well at all. Unfamiliar social settings rapidly increase my anxiety level. When arguing with my spouse, or anyone else, I become highly anxious, sometimes to the point of outward fits of rage. When I feel myself going into a fit of rage, many times I cannot control myself. In my rage fits I always completely disregard my own safety regardless of the implied harm to myself others in my vicinity.
