Wishing Well

Hey Guys,

Just finished watching the film 'Twilight' and couldn't help but draw some parallels between having HSV and the issues the main Vampire in the film has with his relationship with the human.

Thoughts?

I won't lie, had the same thought as well when the first movie came out, haha.

Shame I hated the book though.

I would definitely say there is a connection between herpes and vampirism, if not simply for the fact that sunlight can bring on outbreaks! Hahahaha.

I live in sunny Southern California, and have always had very pale skin, so it is definitely very difficult for me to enjoy being in the bright burning sun. Now however, I am avoiding it the best I can and actually trying to avoid going out in the daytime just to keep outbreaks down!

I haven't watched true blood yet. Will check it out.

The similarities between feasting on people and herpes is uncanny! :twisted:

do you think the sun brings out GH? that part of our body is covered. I heard it can bring on oral outbreaks, but genital outbreaks? Really?

Hey totalregret,

Hmmm, I'm not particularly sure. My doctor just recommended that I stay out of the sun for the most part, because it can bring on more outbreaks. She said this knowing that I only had genital HSV-II, so since then I wondered if it can simply bring out any outbreak regardless? I've been trying to find more information on it. If I find anything I will definitely let you all know!

For some reason I feel like telling people I am a vampire would be easier and less stressful for me than telling people I have herpes. haha I mean people would freak out either way (herpes/vampire) BUT if the person runs b/c I'm a vampire, a) they couldn't tell anyone about it b/c they'd look crazy and B) they would be too terrified that I'd suck 'em dry if they did tell c) I'd be dead sexy anyways and would live forever. Sorry, I know it's not where you're getting at with this thread but I thought I'd share anyways....for fun...yeah...

I see the sequel is out soon. I havent read the books yet but often see them on the tube. To be honest wasn't sure what to expect when posting this so thanks to everyone who's posted so far.

Perhaps there is some beauty in the fact that the girl accepted the guy even though he was a monster, in terms of his genetic make up. Being able to fly and having enormous strength also helps!

Has anyone ever seen a film where HSV has been discussed or shown in any way other than a crack joke?

Great question, I have wondered that myself. Anybody know?

I haven't, guess it doesn't sell.

I was watching a sitcom the other day where a character goes

''You need a truck full of Valtrex''

I stared straight at the tv and kept and expressionless face as I was probably the only one in the room who knew what it was referring to.

I contemplated asking ''whats that?'' just to see if people would know.

Forgetting Sarah Marshall. Anyone watch that movie? There are a few lines in that movie that hint at stds. For example the women was upset b/c she lost her job and her boyfriend suggested she go on tour with him since she's not doing anything. She was not happy that he didn't tell her he was leaving so soon to go travel the world. He's like well I'm telling you now and she said it's not the same thing as telling her. And then he says "I didn't tell you I have genital herpes b/c they're not inflamed at the moment." He said it casually and she didn't react to it at all and that was that. It didn't seem as if it was meant as a joke but it was so random.

      I to have one outbreak after another. Never been tested but I know I have it . I would love advice on how to help with lesions on my labia.  Those hurt the worst and last the longest .  I have found if I take a pin and pop the ones on the regular skin and cover them with coconut oil salt scrub ,it drys them up and almost gone immediately and dont spread near as bad .  As I said I have lesions now and I cant seem to make them better . They hurt so bad .   I am new to this and have no idea how I got it. Been with the same person for years .

      I jus recently found out I have hsv. The first test came back negative they said it was jock itch but I had another lil spot pop up in the crease of my leg an that came back positive. I was so broken at that moment. That someone couldn’t have told me so we could have took actions to prevent me from getting it. I understand well all have it but some people’s is active an some people’s aren’t. I have some questions tho. Ever since I have been diagnosed I have been getting these lil spots poppin up on my legs knuckles an other places that itch tremendously bad idk if it’s bc I’m overly paranoid bc I’ve found out I have this or if there is something else wrong w me   I’m embarrassed to go to the doc about it this has really put me into a deep depression an I found this site hoping to get answers an support on how to deal with this I was praying that maybe this was all a bad dream but unfortunately I was wrong. Please help

      Same thing happened to me not long after having unprotected sex.  I have not tested positive for HSV, but I experience what you are in that area

      Diagnosed a year ago. Tried suppression therapy to no avail. Dr prescribed 500mg Valtrex increased to 1000g no help. Two HIV test negative. The worst experience ever. Tried oil of oregano, olive leaf extract, lysine, Multi vitamin. Just read because I’m peri menopausal it might be hormones. Outbreaks are constant hsv 2.  If anyone can can relate, I’m pleading for insight.
