Intensive care units are causing post-traumatic stress disorder

For most people in Rome, the intensive care unit is a place to get help for serious injuries and illness, it is not a place to develop one. Unfortunately, it seems that there are many people in Georgia and across the country who are developing post-traumatic stress disorder from their stays in the ICU. Some of these cases may even be so severe that the individual must apply for Supplemental Security Income or Social Security disability insurance benefits.

Researchers believe change in memory may be sign of Alzheimer's

With about 35 million people in the world living with dementia, it is safe to say that the condition, including the most common type of dementia, Alzheimer's disease, is a serious problem. For many in Atlanta who are diagnosed with the condition, it comes after years of struggling to remember things that they never had problems remembering before. Though Alzheimer's typically affects older groups, there are some who first feel the effects while working, eventually forcing them out of their jobs.

Study: therapies can help those with chronic fatigue syndrome

For anyone in Athens living with myalgic encephalomyelitis it is not unreasonable to assume that they are unable to work. The condition, also known as chronic fatigue syndrome, leaves individuals exhausted and unable to do much. Oftentimes any sort of exertion will sap the individual of any energy, cause considerable pain, and force him or her to stay in bed. Since this can happen with even the most minor of activity, it is important that many people with the condition apply for disability benefits.

HIV and AIDS causing illness in an aging population

For many people in Atlanta, the thought of an aging population with HIV or AIDS seemed impossible. When the disease was first discovered in 1982, there was very little that anyone with the disease could do; nearly everyone who was infected fell ill and died. There were some, however, who were able to last until medications came available that restored the health and well-being of all those with this long-term illness. After they got better, many of them returned to work and continued on with their lives. Now, however, there are an increasing number of middle-aged people with HIV who are living with disabling medical ailments.
