Belated thank you and a question

Recommended Posts

CSN1968

This is a belated thank you to all of the positive responses I received to my initial post back in October.

THANK YOU!

And now the question part. The diagnosis I've received is gHSV-1. I feel so dirty and unattractive that I wonder if I'll ever want to date again. Sometimes I feel like not dating would be easier than ever having to tell someone that I'm HSV +. In fact, the only people who know are me and my doctor! (And the millions of you on this site :rolleyes: ) I'm just wondering if anyone here just decided to stop dating.

Thanks!

That's a common reaction. I've taken an extended, extended break myself but I don't think it'll be happening forever anymore.

I did take the step of making a profile of positivesingles.com. It's a pretty user-friendly site and it's full of really good people who just got stuck with this problem, like you and me and everyone else here. I actually found it very emotionally helpful to realize just how many people are out there. They've also had a lot of success stories. But even if you don't actually choose to use it, it's helpful to just take a look around.

      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?
