scared & nervous

Recommended Posts

hopeful2008

i was diagnosed w/ gh about 3 months ago. like so many people who are initially infected, i'm really scared and nervous about everything...how many ob will i have? how will i tell someone? will they accept me? etc, etc. i've read lots of advice on all that and it just doesn't make me feel any better. normal i suppose? i'm also freaked b/c my prodrome symptoms (tingling) have been going on the entire 3 months and don't seem to be stopping. lucky me to be one of the rare cases where this doesn't stop. i'm just looking for a breather - a few days even! if my symptoms could just stop for a bit i feel i could get a better grip psychologically on this, but it's so hard and i feel so crappy about myself. so anyway, if anyone has any words of wisdom of thoughts, they are appreciated.

I have hsv2 for 10 months now. From what I remember I felt weird for at least 3 or 4 months. Something never felt quite right whether it be tingling feelings or strange nerve sensations. I dont think you are a rare case at all. I think until your body builds up antibodies it just takes time for you body to become adjusted to your new friend. It will get better just give it a little time.

thanks so much for your reply. i'm trying to wait it out, but that's really tough as i worry this will last for years. i've read a few horror stories of people having these daily sensations for years and that freaks me out. but again, thanks for your thoughts and i will try and be optimistic it'll pass in another month or so.

hi archeologist - when you say from time to time, how often do you get them and how long do they last? and how long have you carried the virus? thanks

      Do you shop at Amazon.com? Next time you shop, you can also automatically donate a portion of the proceeds to the Colorado Alphaherpesvirus Latency Society.  This Society organizes the symposium on latency of herpes viruses.  It was here that Keith Jerome announced that he had edited almost 20%-30% of latent HSV in mice last year. (http://www.ucdenver.edu/academics/colleges/medicalschool/departments/neurology/CALS/Documents/2018 CALS abstracts.pdf) You have to go through smile.amazon.com to set up ongoing donations whenever you shop through smile.amazon.com. ____________________________________________________________________________________________ Yes, I understand that I must always start at smile.amazon.com to support Colorado Alphaherpesvirus Latency Society. Why is there a separate URL? The AmazonSmile program offers customers a new benefit, making a donation to your favorite charity. We're able to provide this benefit to you when you choose to start your shopping at smile.amazon.com in part because we expect AmazonSmile to grow primarily through word of mouth instead of paid advertising—and this enables us to fund donations to our customers’ favorite organizations.

      WOW, it's true.  So cool!  Thanks for sharing. In my view, for the time being, we can just help support the Colorado Alphaherpesvirus Latency Society, rather than asking Fred Hutch to set something up through Amazon.   Here is an important message though, you have to go through smile.amazon.com to do the donation. According to them:     Yes, I understand that I must always start at smile.amazon.com to support Colorado Alphaherpesvirus Latency Society. Why is there a separate URL?
