Have him come here

He probably knows very little about the virus. Have him come here and read all the information available. The more he knows the more he will realize that this, for the most part, is a harmless little virus.

And point him to the success stories section of the forum and let him read how others have successfully coped with this and have gone on to live normal healthy lives.

Tell him to come to the chat room and see all the other people just like him who have it.

Good luck!

What type?

What kind of herpes does he have? How much does he know about it? Does he realize that herpes is fairly normal and that most people carry some form of this virus. Even the stigmatized genital kind of herpes is fairly common; one in four women and one in five men.

Give him some information for when he is ready to read it. And then give him time. Sometimes it is hard for an uninfected person to understand just how tough a herpes diagnosis can be. Let him process it without any pressure.

I'm here to learn about Herpes. I don't have any STDs, but the man I love has Herpes. His feeling is my biggest concern right now. He doesn't talk much about his feeling. He's really quiet. But, I guess he's suffering a lot of emotional pains. I think I can sense something in his eyes.

Joining this forum and reading posts from other members help me a lot. I hope I could understand more about the pain and suffering that people with Herpes are dealing with. I don't have much dating experience. I don't know what I should say or what I should do to support him. I really want him to be happy. I want him to know that no matter what he has, I still love and support him. I'll be on his side whenever he needs me.

Any help? I really appreciate it.

      @hopeful22 Sorry, just to save me a bunch of reading and possibly getting nowhere..and I'm not sure I'm asking correctly.. Is cas12a in the casY category?  Is there some list showing each useful enzyme and which category it's in?

      @Hairpeesthere is absolutely nothing inaccurate in what I have said and I stand by EVERY word. There is not one ounce of fact or accuracy in any of your comments. I’m sorry for your misinterpretations, but their yours alone. I suggest you need to undertake considerable research before commenting further. Please lift yourself.

      I was going to post something about this but I figure this should help people understand before this thread goes haywire.  CAS12A remember cas12a  Instead of CRISPR cas9 crispr cas12a is a more precise and deemed more safe.  In the past couple weeks CRISPR has had a lot of bad publicity over new research, but last week it was discovered that another enzyme CAS12A is very precise and safe.  I am guessing that Excisionbio is going to switch gears and start using CAS12A instead of cas9.  please see the article published last week.  https://www.genengnews.com/gen-news-highlights/crispr-cas12a-more-precise-than-crispr-cas9/81256099

      bad UI design. but I agree. they probably consider HSV-1 and HSV-2 comparable enough and will do each with a different CAS to see what works better.. and then likely do another study with whichever wins the comparison...
