Serious Dilemma

Recommended Posts

dumplinsmom

So I contracted H from my daughter's father. Approximately 2 yrs ago, we were in a relationship and lived together. Things didn't work out so we went our separate ways. Two months later, he moved in with his "cousin" because he couldn't afford to pay the rent we were paying alone. Since this time, even though we aren't together, we still continued to mess around. I contracted H from him last September during this messing around period. In my head, I continued to mess with him because I didn't want to be alone with Herpes and I want a family. Besides that, for some reason, I love him and I'm in love with him and we we were supposed to be "working on" getting back together.

Two days ago our 2 1/2 daughter starts talking about her daddy and Tina (not real name). My daughter said that "Tina" was at work. I thought this was strange because I don't know a "Tina". So, I sent a text to her father asking if he had a "Tina" around our daughter. He said no. Well I did some research and come to find out, he does not live with his cousin, he lives with this "Tina". I am absolutely crushed, my heart is broken. After all I've been through with this man, this hurts worst than me finding out I contracted Herpes. All the signs were there previously but I chose to ignore them because I didn't have any hard evidence, plus the sex was the bomb. He didn't spend any time with me, this is why I stopped talking to him on several occassions and he never spent a night at my home. Never took me out anymore. We were always "working on" getting back together, nothing concrete. So all the signs were there. I asked him on several occassions to be honest, if he was in a relationship and living with a woman. He always denied. When I brought this up during our last conversation, he said he lied about living with this woman because he knew I would make a fuss about it. He claims that this woman is his friend and she let him move in because he didn't have a place to stay and his credit is jacked. Well that was 2 yrs ago!!! How long does it take to get yourself together when you make damn good money??!!! He said that "Tina" does not have Herpes because he's never slept with her.

Sorry this is long but here's my question to you all......I have this woman's phone number. I need closure. As a lot of men do, anytime something happens, he flips it and makes it my fault. This time he says that he does not have a relationship with this woman and I'm jumping to conclusions before I know the story. Blah blah blah. Should I call this woman?? I don't plan to say anything mean. My call would go like this....."_____ gave me you number. I am ________'s mother. ________ would like to have our daughter spend a night with you guys but I'm not comfortable because I don't know you. I just wanted to call and get a feel for you before I let her spend a night. So, how long have you and _____________ been in a relationship....." and it would kind of go on from there. I don't plan to tell her anything, I just want to know. If I don't know, I will always wonder. What's your thoughts?

Well you have to use your own discretion especially if your child is around her. If you do call, please be mature about the situation. Your only concern is the safety of your child and not what are relationship is with your ex. That's my opinion.

You are right to be concerned about your daughter

But I think you already know the answer to your question. If it walks like a duck and talks like a duck, it is a duck. He IS in a relationship with this woman.

And btw, "A lot" of women also try and turn around arguements flip them so it is the guys fault too.

Good luck!

I Didn't Call

Thanks for the responses. I actually didn't call. At the moment I wrote the thread I was really upset, I still am. I decided to just leave the situation alone. I know I have a long way to go to heal from this hurt but I have learned from this situation. I think I'll go have a glass of Moscato and start working on that healing! Lol

Thanks again

If you tell him that you just have to know the truth, and that you want to speak to Tina, you might see what happens. Maybe you won't even need to talk to Tina. He may say something one way or the other.

Then there is no game, just straight talk.

Maybe you will talk to Tina. I don't know. Personally, I don't think I could talk to Tina if it was my situation.

He did conceal the situation whether it is innocent or not.

Good luck, hugs and blessings in whatever decission u make.

Yeah actually it's his loss and not mine. I'm kind of old fashioned and feel that a child should be with both parents. You know how back in the day, when someone got pregnant, they usually got married. I wanted to do whatever it took for my daughter to have both parents in the household. In doing this, I put what was best for me aside. I knew all along that he wasn't right for me and did not treat me how I "know" I should be treated. I chose to keep trying and believe what he was saying becuase I thought that maybe....he would change. Maybe.....he will be a better man for our family. Well as I said before, I have learned from this situation. As the saying goes, I'm shattered but not broken. I will get over this situation. It will take a while, but time heals.

Thanks again to everyone for reading and responding to my drama. I just really needed to vent!

      Day 14 No improvements  new blisters keep forming in the same area. Still using Acyclovir 2 x 800mg/day and all the other supps. 
    • viralfrog
      What dosage are you using daily, and how long did it take for you to notice a difference? I didn't see any improvement in 8 days but realise it might have been too short for an experiment.

      WelI I got my results. I got scared because they say consultation needed but I know I have hsv1. So I see it's negative for hsv2. Using the igG bloodtest. It's been about 5 wks since I've felt funny. Again the derm said malluscum and another doc say monders. I'm saying I disturbed the area from being rough for hrs with a condom. My question to the experienced ones is after 5 wks would you think is have some kind of detectable antibodies. Again nothing ever blistered or ulcrred. After sex I remember using antibacterial hand soap down ther in the shower and honestly that's when I burned for a few days lol. That went away and I'm left with a sore raw feel. I have an appointment soon. I want to make sure it's H before they prescribe and operate smh.    Questions.  After 5 weeks never ulcered or pussed, would you think I should have some kind of antibodies fighting it off so it doesn't ulcer? Or I should be having a full ob by now because I have been stressing. Not eating losing sleep and all. What's your intake my friends. Btw the igG test I did specifically says 4 to 6 wks. 6 wks itll above 90% accurate. Elisa herpe select. Is the name of it. I'm 5 wks in from discomfort.

      Had same symptoms . Burning in penis , nerve pain , lower back pain etc  girl I caught it from had positive viral culture on her vagina for genital herpes 8 years prior but tested negative igg prior to us sleeping together so she assumed she didn't have it anymore .  started dating another girl recently who had positive swab for herpes on vagina in 2013 but tests negative for igg for both types of HSV currently . She also assumed she "beat it" and was no longer a carrier . She gets burning nerve pain all over , constant lower back pain , itchiness all over etc  with both women I experienced a burning sensation in fingertips upon touching there vagina , with the second one I knew exactly what was happening and it scared the hell out of me . Now I'm going thru the initial exposure symptoms all over again except they are alittle different . Headache , pressure behind right eye , burning and pinching sensations all over , lower back pain , weakness and fatigue , burning spots on skin, outbreak on chin , cramping etc I had chronic health issues and poor GI function prior to catching HSV so my immune system responds very poorly to these viruses. testing for hsv 2 is very , very inaccurate . And there are multiple strains of hsv 2 . Viruses mutate slightly with each new host as does  the antigen and antibody response . I'm learning the hard way that just because you have hsv 2 doesn't mean you are immune to hsv 2, so if you start dating someone new who has hsv2 you are going to pick up there strain and they will pick up yours . I currently test positive for only hsv 1 and it's been 8 months since I caught type 2.   one word of advice , I would recommend eating a lower histamine diet and avoid highly acidic foods or drinks . They flare the virus for me and others as well. Also keep stress levels down and be sure to get low intensity exercise everyday to balance nervous system. wilson is very, very uneducated when it comes to hsv and the symptoms it can present as well as testing accuracy . You would think he would be clued in after reading how many consistencies in "atypical" symptoms people post about after exposure on this board as well as the the large amount of people who have positive swabs but negative IGG testing or people with classic hsv symptoms but negative blood work results long after initial exposure... so little is known about these viruses and what they do to our bodies , another word of advice is that after initial exposure rate of viral shedding is very high so be very careful around people you live with or come in contact with . This virus spreads like wildfire in people right after initial exposure . It lives on inanimate surfaces and objects for a minimum of 4 hours and up to several days depending on uv light exposure , air temp and humidity and other environmental factors . All it takes is virus to skin contact for transmission , and in someone with poor health or of old age they pick it up much easier and it can cause serious health issues.

      hello I received oral from woman with possible herpes. Could someone here please tell how initial breakout looks on glans of penis ? I noticed a bit of redness on penis head, with what looks like beginning of bumps. I have also noticed one side of my buttocks has muscle pain, but cannot remember doing any exercise or movement to trigger this muscle pain.

      The possible herpes area does not feel pain, but it's only been 3-4 days now. I feel some tingles, but not sure if psychosomatic at this point due to focusing to see if I feel symptoms. There is definite new redness with skin looking slightly differently textured. I will be going to a clinic tonight.  Thanks
