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!

      I believe there will be a cure for a gun and I do not want to lose my faith

      What do you think about ahcc? It is used in the treatment of HPV and increases immunity. Can it also prevent hsv? because increasing immunity will reduce recurrences. can it work? sorry for the spelling mistakes because it is not an anthropology

      Bleh, been a little over a month since I posted this and still having the burning pain since April. Will I ever feel normal down below again without taking meds for nerve pain?  
    • Freefalling87
      Although I am male, I have nerve pain down below as well. Instead of my leg, it is actually in my scrotum. I contracted this virus last year in December 2017. My initial outbreak was in my throat, nothing down below at all. Test in January confirmed that I had HSV-2; tested looking for IGG antibodies which were at 23. In April, I believe i had a very minor outbreak with just one spot that may have been a blister in my groin. Although there was no pain, I was afraid that it would get worse so I decided to take my valtrex for 5 days (the spot disappeared within 3 days). Two days after I stopped valtrex, the nerve pain came about and was in both of my inner thighs and my scrotum. From that moment on, the nerve pain moved from the thighs and stayed only in my scrotum and has persisted daily ever since.  My nerve pain is constant; not in the sense of 24/7 non stop, but on and off throughout the day, every day. So in essence, I'm in the same boat with you where I don't have any visible symptoms (no redness though in my case), but have the constant burning sensation. I will admit, hearing your story and knowing that this has persisted for you for over 16 years is kind of disheartening to me. I keep telling myself that because I am still new to this virus, my body is still getting use to it and that after the first year one day the nerve pain will stop completely. Now I am not so sure.
