It's sad.

Recommended Posts

I just want to say that everytime I get on this forum, there is at least one new person that was just diagnosed. I think it's so sad that so many people catch this and it's happening at a rapid pace. I know how I felt when I was just diagnosed in Jan. 2009, and how I still feel about having H. It's been a very depressing time for me, and I still can't completely get over the idea.

Yes, Rockgirl, there are many new members here daily....but have you ever looked at the guests that read the forum who haven't joined? There are a LOT! It's amazing.

I think it just takes time to adjust. I hope you feel better (and more accepting) everyday!

Yes, it's sad but right now theres over 400 "guests" viewing this forum, how many of them are likely to have Herpes? Most either do have herpes or think they do. I for one would like to welcome them to join us!:)

Hey Rock Girl, I was diagnosed in May and there hasn't been a day where I'm not slightly put out from having H...sadly I also think about the guy who gave it to me and how foolish I was to trust him and not seriously consider the risks...but I've slowly started to handle myself better when I get down and that's something...

Thanks for the replys everyone. I too hope I will someday start to accept myself again. I know I will, it's just taking me a while.

Yes it is sad that people are not Woman or Man enough to tell the person they are sharing their bodies with that they have something that could change their lives forever. But hey, the world is cruel. We should be grateful that it doesn't kill us and doesn't really change our lives that much. If you really think about it... We aren't paralyzed or loosing weight, loosing hair etc.

A few outbreaks here and there that can be reduced, and a forum for support when we are down.

Don't be depressed, try to look at it on the bright side!

:D

Now lets see some teeth... smile!

      I am fortunate enough to live near one of the most prestigious hospitals in the USA that rates high in infectious disease diagnosis & treatment. I went to a specialist and asked direct questions including about casual sex. Firstly, I have ghsv1. She said: Casual sex is NOT off the table. When someone chooses to have casual sex, they are accepting the risk of contracting an STI. There is no obligation to disclose in this situation unless going without a condom. The risk is extremely low from a one time protected encounter . Don't do it if you are having symptoms. If you have sex with this person repeatedly, especially if you go without protection then you should disclose. If someone rejects you for it she says he's an asshole and a germaphobe. Because it's no big deal

      I wanted to validate your choice. He saying 500mg. Plus he was saying it was his favorite for HSV.

      Immediately after it clears Phase 3, they might price Pritelivir in an exorbitant fashion and only prescribe it to immunodeficient patients (AIDS). I'm also curious how fast HSV is expected to evolve resistance against Pritelivir.

      So I disclosed for the first time last week. I was feeling confident after reading all of the positive disclosure stories out there. I was armed with the stats and presented the information in a calm manner as recommended. I was happy to find out that the guy already had a lot of knowledge about it because had an ex w the same issue. It was nice to have sex without having to worry about harboring a secret, I felt normal for once   I got a text from him in the AM and I was hoping for the usual "had a great time, can't wait to see you again" but instead he was blithering on about being paranoid about the contact. We exchanged one more message that day, and today I sent one, no response..... pretty certain I've been ghosted.  I am back to that dark place where I feel like I'm unlovable / unfuckable dreg of society. I'm a single parent which doesn't help, nobody wants a relationship w someone like me... add the herpes and I might as well be a 400 lb amputee on welfare with an IQ of 70. I feel like I am going to have to eventually "settle" for someone that is willing to be with me, but I don't really like them. I feel that a man that is willing to accept this is probably an unwanted outcast himself.  So ultimately I fear I will have nobody, or settle for a guy that disgusts me

      Maybe I should up my intake of olive leaf?
