Hi everyone. New to the site

Recommended Posts


Soo basically today has been a loong day. I just found out that I got herpes from my boyfriend. We have been together for over three years and never did I think he had herpes. In the case he didn't know either. But I'm sooo upset. I feel like my life Is kind of screwed up now. I really don't know what to do or handle this:( it's very upsetting.

Butterfly of the Moment

Hello there, you will get through this...at least you are not going through this alone as some people on here haven't told anyone, doesn't know who they got it from, or their lover bales on them and they have to deal with this alone. It's hard to be alone with this stigmatized disease...luckily I have a man in my life that supports me and loves me...it was difficult at first for me to come to terms with this...it's the mental part that bothered me but there have been instances in the day where I don't think about having herpes and that's a big thing for me...remember you are not alone and a significant portion of the population are carriers of the virus...this is not a "rare" condition...

      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.
