It seems as though in times of great stress, I have an out break. Just one small cluster of blisters... OUCH! LOL and always on my butt cheeks...LOL...not funny HUH? They hurt! Anyway, if anyone would like to chat, you have my email address.

Peace, love, and joy!!!!

Hi Loree, welcome to the board, it's a great place to share and participate.

I know that a lot of people here would benefit from hearing your experience with this virus. For example - how did you contract it/how long have you had it, how have people responded to you (romantically or otherwise), what do you do to control the outbreaks and I'm sure a lot more.

Hi Loree!

Welcome from another older chick; I am 63, have had GH for about 14 years. I got it from a long time lover, a guy I was with for 10 years, who cheated on me, caught herpes but did not want to tell me. I found out about it all after he died of lung cancer and I had my first miserable symptoms. I worried about having to tell any guy I might get intimately involved with...that was before I figured out that at my age, I probably won't even be able to get a date let alone get to the point of having to have "the talk." Too much competition, I have found. Guys at my age only have to be one thing to get all the dates they want with women--ALIVE!!!! (LOL). At my age, guys can date women this age plus lots of younger women, too. So I am a little sad about things. However, it did put my silly fear of "the talk" in perspective--if I ever get to the point of having to have that talk, I will be thrilled just to have gotten that far and will not worry too much about that talk, awkward though it may be.

Tell us more about yourself, how you got herpes (if you know), how you deal with it emotionally, what you do to prevent outbreaks etc.

      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?
