Awww, don't think like that! If you're alive and have internet access you are already two steps ahead ;)

What's troubling you?

I would clear out the bar. I can't sing for anything.

Happy birthday, HH! You certainly have a lot of snow for your birthday this year.

If I were you, I'd probably go get some really good food that's bad for me and rent a couple of Christmas or action movies and just relax in front of the TV and get away from my own worries.

I thought about doing that but I might want to go somewhere.

Hmmm...curecomingverysoon",is there really a cure coming soon? I think scientist have the technology for a cure there is a cure and a vaccine. What do you think?

I don't get outbreaks anymore but it would be GREAT to have a cure because of the stigma.

Well, my determination that a cure (or vaccine -- not transmitting to someone else would be as good as a vaccine for me...) is really what gets me through the day, particularly when I'm by myself. I've got a quite an obsessive streak in me so this whole thing really consumes me... I'm 24, I've had four partners, only one without protection and that fourth one wouldn't use a condom... and so I sit here on Christmas Eve day. I know the risk with condoms and suppressive therapy is 1% from female to male (probably more in the range of 2-3%, considering how much sex I like(d)) to have) but I can't wrap my mind around even the possibility of transmitting this burden to someone else...

I know that the cure is out there or on its way... by the time I'm 30, I need this to be a thing of the past. I think that it will have permanently shaped the person that I am though, and for that, I hope to one day be grateful.

Happy 40th

What I wouldn't give to be 40 again! Look at it this way--no matter what, I will always be older than you are!

Feel free to PM me and, if you want to chat with an old chick on Christmas, I will be home and recovering from a back injury (temporary, I hope). I had to cancel out on the Christmas party to which I was invited.

Things can always be worse, right? And where there's life, there's hope. If nothing else, I believe we can all look forward to the herpes vaccine one of these days (or years) which will make the social stigma surrounding herpes obsolete. And there should be some better meds fairly soon as well.

      Meds and condoms is really all you need. Statistically, HSV2 is so widespread because 80-90% of  people who have it are unaware that they have it, and so they don't take all recommended precautions (including using condoms). Oddly enough, if you were to replace your HSV2+ girlfriend (aware of HSV status, using condoms, using suppressive meds) with the average American woman (unaware of HSV status, but 25% risk, which is average - and using condoms at all times, since presumably you could insist on it), you would actually NOT reduce your risk of HSV2. The statistical risk would be approximately the same for both theoretical girlfriends (about 0.7% per year assuming sex 2x per week). That is a bit simplistic, because maybe you could decide to date only women who are verified virgins (essentially no risk), or maybe "below average risk" in some way (younger than average, fewer prior partners than average, etc.), or you could have all prospective girlfriends IgG blood tested for HSV as a condition to dating them (or having sex with them), which would reduce the risk significantly (especially if you confirmed the paperwork), but not completely (since antibodies take some time to develop). At some point, beyond-standard precautions become inconvenient and not worth the hassle (or risk of being perceived as paranoid). The risk isn't zero, and probably would never be zero, short of taking extreme measures. Efforts to reduce risk beyond standard practices, which already reduce risk to relatively low levels, are naturally subject to the law of diminishing returns. Accepting some level of risk is (unfortunately) part of the deal in most reasonable endeavors. Also, there is statistically a greater likelihood of two people passing HPV between them one way or the other, than HSV2 (assuming all recommended precautions are being taken). Of course, you could get the HPV vaccine (everyone should!). But the vaccine only covers 10-15% of the types of HPV that are out there. And tests for HPV are imperfect, and generally not available for males. And HPV (some types) can cause cancer (cervical, penile, and throat - maybe others). So, keep that in mind as well. And then, of course, there are all the other risks . . . Best not to be paranoid though . . .

      That’s correct. HIV is a distinct virus. No virus morphs into another one.

      Hey @thebrightsidegirl I hope you’re going ok, I’ve read your posts and will see if I can draw some threads. I see that you have genital HSV-1 and your partner has oral HSV-1. I’m not sure if he has tested but given it’s somcommon there’s no reason to disbelieve that’s what he has. This is the best concirdant scenario you can hope for in a sexual relationship. You both already have the virus and your immune systems are established and your experience with herpes is your own. You cannot induce an outbreak in each other by virtue your own HSV-1 and transmission to a new location on your partner is too small to worry about. If HSV-2 is present, then it needs to be brought to the relationship. It’s not at all likely you have it given you were infected genitally with HSV-1.  I suggest these symptoms are very unlikely to be related to herpes at all. If they are, then it’s far more likely to be a recurrent outbreak issue with your HSV-1 as opposed to an initial infection with HSV-2.

      Ozone is basically toxic to humans at high levels. Its probably as likely to kill your cells as the virus. Add to that the virus is not in the blood and I'd say this 'treatment' is probably totally ineffective and if it does include high levels of real ozone likely dangerous. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ozone_therapy
