Hi im new to this site and i was diagnosed just less than a month ago, 2 days after my 30th birthday:( here i was looking forward to saying goodbye to my somewhat troublefilled 20s and embracing a new milestone only to get this unwanted birthday gift....i am in here to chat to people, read about other peoples experiences and in turn maybe help other newly diagnosed people too. Ive been very fortunate in the fact that ive had some fantastic support from my friends and family as i have chose to tell them all about it, but not one of them can help me through personal experience.

Welcome

Are you from England? My mom was born in London and I have visited London a few times.

I have had GH, hsv2, for about 14 years, got it from my boyfriend, found out about it after he died of lung cancer. He got it from cheating on me. I was with him for 10 years. It was heartbreaking.

I'm an aging hippie, 63 years old, and after 10 years of total secrecy, I came out of the closet, told my friends, and started posting here. It's been a real revelation to me how many people have this and how many people suffer from shame, secrecy and fear of social and personal rejection. I am hoping I will live to see a vaccine or even a cure for this.

This is a great board, very smart, supportive people here.

      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?
