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.

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.

      The ashwagandha is good for thyroid health. I am not familiar with the rest. That is not a list I would put together!

      Hey @moonperson it is not likely that you have given a genital HSV-2 infection to 3 of your friends or your boyfriend from any of the activities that you describe. I'm sure this is all fine. How did your new diagnosis come about?

      Me too, me too, I hope you can reach you desired level of health... I just think it isn't fully fair in a way to imply that your unfortunate issues are caused by herpes when there is virtually no chance that they are.

      Hello y’all, im newly diagnosed with herpes simplex 2 and I’ve given it to 3 of my friends and boyfriend. It migrated from my genitals to my mouth and I smoked weed with my friends via pipe without understanding my infection fully. Then my boyfriend told me it’s okay to kiss and give him head cuz he loves me anyway. He’s not a big chaser or nothing, he’s just dumb. I’m living in constant anxiety and a tumultuous emotional state—just seeing if anyone has similar experiences and tips/tricks you may have picked up on the way leaving with herpes, either strain. Honestly, I’m just needing some support, even if herpes is “common” and “manageable”, it has been a heavy heavy weight on my mind.
