Hi Shhh we talked last night! I just read your post! My doctor did a swab test and she could only determine if it was herpes or not. I have to wait 2 months to get a blood test to determine the type.
I'm like you worries about who I got it from. The one I had oral sex with for the last 2 weekends said he had cold sores in college so I'm guessing its from him. Not my husband who I had oral sex with back in March or this other guy on January 3rd.
I really like the current guy he told me we'd talk yesterday never called or texted. I think I should just forget about it.
The Facebook groups are secret and your friends won't see that you have joined them and if you post in the group it does not show up on your timeline. Most people take the extra step though of creating a 2nd profile. They use their real first name and the name of their city as their last.
There are dozens of groups, most based on geography. These are not support groups, just fun groups to meet other Herpsters. There
Let me know if you want to join Swirls and I will get you in. From there you can find the other groups.
I'm a nurse as well. Working helps me because there are a lot of people suffering worse than I'am at any given time/moment. Stigma is what causes the emotional pain. So we have to deal with it mentally and we still have to make money to pay our bills. Little by little, it gets better.
Wow thank you JB. I really feel a little better. God bless you. I wasn't sure if I was duplicating post as I had created one before and I didn't see it visible on the forums so I created another one. Oops lol. I'm not really familiar with the site. As for Facebook, I'm kind of scared to join groups as my family members don't know I have this disease and they usually Nosey on my page. I think they can see when I join groups/pages lol. I will try finding the other post you mentioned that was on here. Let me know if you come across any other sites. Thank you very much for your reply. Be safe
