Diagnosed Recently!! Okay with it?

Recommended Posts


Hi everyone, I just signed up a couple of days ago and finally figured out how to post. I was diagnosed with G-HSV1 after going to the doctor because my boyfriend is a bit aggressive in bed and I thought he had torn me up. Well he did, and the doctor gave me an ointment and said to come back in 3 days. Well I felt so much better I almost skipped out since I'm a new grad with no insurance. I did go though, and he took one look and said "yup that's herpes" and "people that get this diagnosis want to commit suicide but it isn't that bad."

Yeahhhh, great bedside manner. I was shocked of course because he didn't even say anything like that was happening down there on Monday. He then said to not even send the viral culture because it was definitely herpes and the test was expensive. When he left me the nurse said for me to send it, and I was like hell yes I want to send.

Anyway that's my story. I was sickened by it all, especially since the day after I was leaving for a trip with my boyfriend and family. I think my boyfriend did give it to me even though it can be a dormant infection. The doctor said I got it when I had had intercourse with my boyfriend the week before and was feeling burning and torn down there. I'm going to assume he's right although I have been with several other men. My boyfriend has also been extremely sexually active so this may make me horrible but I'm assuming he is most likely to contract an STD and me of course being trusting and plain dumb didn't think of anything when he doesn't use a condom.

Oy geez! Long message but just wanted to introduce myself. Feeling good at the moment, little itchy, but I can deal, it might have been that arginine-filled nutella I ate last night! :eek:

      What was the comment? I don't see it on their official Facebook Given the recent news that Crispr can result in all sorts of erroneous cuts when double strand breaks are involved, I'm surprised to hear they still believe they will run trials in a few months. The FDA recently blocked ex vivo crispr trials, I can't imagine them letting in vivo trials move forward given the recent reports

      How do you get in touch with a Moderator for this site? I am being bullied, unbelievably, on a support site.  I can't just let it go because it is happening to other people too.

      For the last time, my name is not Jay.  My name is Amy.  I am not telling you my last name.  I am a woman, not a man.  I've reported all of your rude comments to me and asked an Admin to prove to you that I am not Jay.  You are really pissing me off.  I'm pretty sure Spinky is in the same group on FB for meningitis and he can vouch for me.  Now get a life and leave me alone!!!!

      Ronald, could you please stop with the capital letters; it's annoying to read.
