Hi I found out i had herpes four days ago, im very upset depressed and cant stop thinking about it every thought is about it, at least now i can say the word i couldnt till today. The only thing keeping me going is the suprisingly good reaction of my new boyfriend (3 months). He doesnt think any less of me because the fact is I may have gotten it from him neither of us are sure, he said he was tested 6-8months ago but doesnt know if they did a herpes test. He has been so supportive but i continue to obesess about it and worry if this relationship doesnt work how will i ever tell someone i have herpes, especially people my own age or younger. i can thank my partner enough for his support i felt totally awful, disgusting and gross to begin with but now i see that if he can accept it like he has then we have a good basis for a good relationship even though i have found this out. i do wanna know if there are forums for dating because i assume its easier to meet someone with the same issue????? i just dont know how i can socialise and meet guys like i used to.......i realise this changes alot for me. hopefully my current partner and i can make it work, we were going great and falling fast and then this......

It's awesome that's he's supportitive.. I got lucky that mine was too... we're still talking also..

I didn't go the dating H website route.. I've heard that their aren't that many people on there...

And time will definitely help you when you're ready to talk to someone about H...

How old are you by the way?

I'm 26 and got H in June of this year..

(personally) b/c my guy didn't treat me any differently... I didn't change things either.. We still do everything like before we found out including sex and oral and whatever else we want... I don't really talk to him about it when i'm struggling... I get on this website and talk to others that can relate (I don't want to remind him of something bad) ...

that's just me. ... and everyone is different about handling things...

I'm here if you ever need to talk.. you can click on my name and send a private message (PM) and talk about anything going on...

WELCOME to the site.. we're here for you!

      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.

      Hello I have similar symptoms as you. Most prominent is burning after urination. It is more while sitting.  It is not possible because of herps as it is a virus which causes symptoms in a cycle and never continuously as reported in your case and also the frequency decreases over time.   Kindly post here for further discussion as i am still trying to figure out what it can be.

      Coffee has argnine properties.  I get outbreaks from drinking caffeine or decaf.  I have since stayed away as I recognize my triggers.
