I'm being obsessive!

Recommended Posts

rainy day

How normal is this?

My one lone bump is going away and now everytime I feel a twinge I think oh no its more! I am a obsessive person by nature and am very much "in tune" with my body.

For instance, yesterday me, hubby and the kiddos went for a loong walk that ended up being about 4 miles. I started getting um, chaffed down there as I wasn't wearing the most comfortable underwear, plus its that time of the month (sorry TMI) I started getting a bit sore and itchy and I freaked out and as soon as I got home I took a oatmeal bath and had hubby check me with a mirror and flashlight!:rolleyes: There was nothing there but a red line on the inside I think where things had been rubbing together. I freaked out about it forever thinking I'm having another outbreak. THEN after the "inspection" (lol) I went and poured peroxide on a towel and blotted down there in case it was something and all the pulling and touching we did, I didn't want to spread it. :eek: I mean, how crazy does that sound!!!! Today I'm sore down there and I believe its from all the walking plus all the things I put down there (oatmeal, ect)

If this had happened before having this outbreak I wouldn't have thought twice about it! How frustrating for me!

But I can't stop worrying about it.

Does this go away with time, I don't want to worry about this 24/7. I think because this is so new that I'm having a hard time dealing and of course obsessing but I want to get on with it. I don't want to spend the rest of my life worrying about when the next outbreak is going to be and if I've spreaded it to other places. OMG. How do ya'll do deal with this part of it?

      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?
