Hey, I'm new here and haven;t really had much support since I found out a week ago. I called up a local support group in Richmond that was listed and tried to get info, but the person on the phone actually said that he had no idea what "HSV" was. Since I really can't seem to find much support, here I am.

I had called a local number listed on the internet for a support group that used to be in my area. When a girl answered and I asked if this was the Herpes support group I got a ..... "Excuse Me...." and I apologized for dialing the wrong number and hung up. She is going to get a lot more calls like mine and will be wondering if some friends are setting her up for jokes or something :)

Welcome to the 'club'

Was this the number you dialed (804) 358-6343?

There are also some national help lines:

National Herpes Hotline

(Counseling Line)

Tel: 1-919-361-8488

CDC National STD Hotline

Tel: 1-800-227-8922

And do a search in Yahoo groups. There are over 1500 groups with the word 'herpes' in their name.

And come to the Live Chat room, plenty of nice people have been coming there for support.

Good luck!

JB

      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?
