And yes this is more of the same old same old. The doctor got my results back and she told me today that I have been exposed to HSV 1 and 2.

So I tell the lover and then he won't talk anymore.

Reading through some of the posts I see that so many people are going through the same thing. And it makes me feel better. I've never had any signs and symptoms of herpes. I don't even know where I got it or from whom. I don't know if the lover has it. I just feel sad and confused. The only reason I got the stupid blood test done is because the lover's ex said that she had an STD. So to be on the safe side, I got checked for everything. Now I wish I hadn't. I mean, it's not going to kill me or anyone else...so why do I need to know???

Confused and sad in MI

It's better to know, even if it sucks at first, because then you can to everything in your power to educate and protect future partners, and perhaps loved ones. Even though you may not have symptoms, people you transmit it to may and it's not fair to put someone as risk without their knowledge. That being said, that really sucks that "lover" wasn't receptive to the news. But, if it doesn't work out with him, there are plenty of fish in the sea and there is a growing population of people dealing with the same exact thing you are. You're so not alone, I guess knowing that makes me feel a little better. Best of luck to you!

      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?
