My story and frustrations!


Recommended Posts

12 years ago I got hsv1 from my exhusband. He is still in denial and probably passing it on to others. The way I figured out I got it from his is 10 years of wondering and then one day it hit me .........It had to be him.

His ex girlfriend had called early in our relationship and accused him of it because she had given her new boyfriend it. She was always trying to break us up so I thought it was another try.........to break us up. I did not get it til 4 years into our relationship after our youngest daughter was born.

When I asked the dr how I got this she looked at me as if I was totally stupid. But I had been with my ex 4 years and never cheated on him. I became very depressed for a while. I'm sure that is one of the reasons why I stayed with him for 9 more years. He is an alcoholic. I was miserable for many years before we got divorced. It was a great relief when it finally came about.

But then the dating scence..........The first guy I told on second date......he yelled and asked what we were going to do. I told him we could deal with it or he could ask me to leave. He decided I was to nice of person to have to deal with it alone. Well that was the beginning of a 8 month emotional roller coaster ride. One of the hardest things to understand was he had hsv1 only orally. He said that was no big deal he had had them since he was a little boy. His mother had them and so did his son. He even gave them to his exgirlfriend. But yet I was damaged goods but not damaged enough to not have a sexual relatiohship with. I know it was my fault sticking around. But he had told me no one would understand. This relationship cost me a great deal emotionally.

Next I had some one night stands..........not ever getting hurt again........wrong......

Then I had a 5 month relationship with someone who didn't care at all. But because he was Dr Jeckel and Mr Hyde I broke it off.

Next I had a good guy..........who understood.........but he was building his own house so it ended due to a lack of time.

Last December I was seeing someone and he didn't disappear right away but with in a month he just faded out. Which was fine because he had more issues then I wanted to deal with.

Then in February I was falling in love with someone who I had dated a few times last fall. But he realized he wasn't ready to get back into a relationship. So we remained friends and chatted once in awhile. He came back into my life mid January. I was so afraid to tell him. He wasn't sure he wanted to be in a relationship with me because I was on anti depressants. (wonder why I am! lol!) So I wasn't sure how he would react to the news that I had hsv1. Well on Valentines night we went out and had a great time. (I had planned on telling him in the next week of so.)

We went back to my place and we had planned on him staying because he had promised to be a perfect gentleman. Well things started to get carried away and he wasn't taking no for an answer. So I told him. I know in the heat of the moment is not the time to tell but he wasn't leaving me much of a choice. And truthfully I wanted to make love to him also! He told me that night we just wouldn't worry about it. My heart just opened up to him. I was so happy. We made beautiful love. In fact it was probably the best I had in my life! The next day he left and I was to call him later. No answer all 3 times I called him. Monday I got the bomb! A email telling me to leave him alone......why hadn't I told him sooner..........before he cared about me..........he was sorry to hurt me but it was the deal breaker.......

I was devestated.........cried and cried........for days..........work was a challenge.........sitting there crying..............my friends were all pissed off at him.........for hurting me. Then the next Saturday he called and said he wanted to talk. But he did some research and talked with his dr and made his decision before talking with me. My counselor thinks he couldn't get together with me because he didn't trust himself. He told me he was falling in love with me too. But he would always be worrying about it so he could not be in a relationship with me. This was really hard for me.

But I decided I wasn't going to sit and wallow in my own self pity. So I started talking with another guy on the personals. Well we hit it off great. Laughed and laughed. First date went great. He started sending me sweet little messages. Told me he felt lucky for meeting me. I was starting to fall for him. So I figured I should tell him, even if it was only our second date. I think it was to soon. He said it was something to think about but we were cool. Later when I talked to him on the phone he said he appreciated me telling him but we just needed to go on from there. Not a problem. He was to call me Monday night. Phone didn't ring. Tuesday morning got a message that he was sorry he had fallen asleep early he would call me Wednesday night. Wednesday night got a message he would be in and out of the house all night he would call me Thursday night. I decide that was bull shit and called him. Told him I had ptc the next night and wouldn't be home. I asked if he was having second thoughts. He said he had been doing alot of thinking. Wouldn't say it was good or bad........ At the end I asked when he would know for sure ...........it was killing me. He said he would call me Friday night with his decision. Well the silence tells me he can't deal with it. I only wish he would of been honest with me like I was with him.

So right now I'm just trying to heal and figure out where to go from here.

      Yes, but every married person who I found out about that has this waited 6-8 months into the relationship to disclose it. But maybe you're right. If I had told her 6-7 months in, she'd still have Googled it and flipped out, and maybe it would have been harder then. I don't know. I don't see myself going through this level of pain and rejection so easily next time. I really don't. I'm taking the meds. I use protection. It's been almost a decade since I've had it so I'm not worried about shedding or passing it on so easily. British studies confirm that the first 2 years are the most contagious and we're passed that. I'm just over this. I've never been in so much emotional pain in my life.

      Is this herpes? I can’t find any pics that match this exactly and my symptoms don’t really match. I don’t have really any of the typical herpes symptoms other than pictured, so I figured it could be friction as I have recently been having a lot of sex with a new partner. Way more than normal. Started having unprotected sex about 3 - 4 weeks ago. These symptoms only started about 3-4 days ago. Felt burning in some areas and only some very few tiny red areas/spots appeared. Almost shiny in appearance. Seems to settle very quickly. They were only present for a day or so. Also had some very mild irritation after I pee but not during. This spot has 2 small red lumps that are now dry around the outside. It’s like it’s been rubbed off and the skin is dry and shiny underneath. It doesn’t seem to be lesion. There was no puss or any leakage, nor was the skin ever red under them. They also got better within a day or so. I still have red spots around but they are very small and not bunched together and some general discomfort but I feel it’s because I’ve touched it so much! Stressing a bit!  my research tells me friction burn/blister , Fungal ,herpes a bit of it all! I have no idea! Please help! Thanks in advance.

      I’m going to force him to get tested ! Thanks for your help !

      @EssenceL25 there really isn't a question mark around the source, it's your latest partner. The median time from infection to an outbreak of lesions upon initial infection is 4 days.  The only thing that isn't certain is the type I suggest.
