My life is a nightmare how could i be so stupid

Recommended Posts

PartyGirlx

I have'nt been diagnosed with herpes but i have self diagnosed myself am 99% sure i have it i can't think of anythink else it would be. I was so stupid and selfish i chested on my bf who i have been with for nearly 10 years and we have a 18 month old son. It all started in july wer me and partner was arguing all the time and i went out with my best friend and her cousin who i have known for years, one thing led to another and we had several flings over a few weeks all protected apart from the last fling. I have always been paranoid about catching things so booked myself in for a chlamydia test which was negative so started having sex with my bf again after a few days he was extremely ichy on his penis and then a couple of days after that he had a bright red rash on his bikini line which looked scally. Alarm bells started ringing but i had no symptoms untill a few weeks after this i started to itch and looked red and swollon down there and noticed about 5 cuts down there one was above the clit it looked like an open sore bright red in the middle. I always thought herpes was crusty sores or blisters so thought it must be something else. But what ever it was iv never had cuts before and iv been having sex for 10 years. I have also had a disgusting disharge which lasted a few days it was horrible there was a foul smell and i felt so dirty it was so hard to wash off i literally had about 3 baths that day and it still wouldn't come off completely. My bf keeps geting disharge on the shaft like if you rubbed his penis there would be like bits of white stuff and he has been smelling really bad down there he doesn't get a bath as much as me so its really bad on him. Hes been saying to me hes geting checked out if it carrys on and if it comes back that he has something am gonna be single. Am so scared i feel like my life is over and what for. Am so angry i talked to this guy about it and he said he hasn't been itchy so it must of come from my fella and he found the whole thing funny. Am going the gum clinic on sat and gonna get tested for everything apart from herpes am gonna rule everything outand if am negative then its got to be herpes and if it is i don't want to know cause then my life is truely over.

I have also had a lump under both arms i don't know if this is a symptom ?

I wouldn't say that your life is over because if it is herpes then I know it would be hard to accept but at least its not aids and just try to live your life accordingly. I know your bf say he may leave but if he leaves then maybe he is not the man for you anyway. I could be wrong on that part but just pray on it. I don't think he's going anywhere though.

Your life will not be over

Millions of people live everyday with herpes. And there are much worse diseases out there you can get.

You should get tested for it and not rely on total strangers on a website to diagnose you. And read as much about this virus as you can. The more you know, the more you will realize, for the most part, herpes is a common, harmless virus.

Good luck!

What i meant by saying my life would be over is i would loose my bf of 10 years and i couldm't imagine life without him. If it turns out its herpes he will no i have cheated again and finish with me on the shot. It would destroy are family. If all my tests come back negative am gonna carry on as normal and not let this stress me out. Thanx for your replys.

Oh WOW, your story sounds very familiar to me! I got my gift back in July..my husband is being very supportive. I am not sure if I have passed it onto him, he is not concerned about "H"

I do not get blisters or sores either (knock on wood) the doctor said I had a very small "tear" also I had redness, slight burning and a very lovely dis-charge. Everyone is different, I don't think there is a "normal"

I would advise you do you to the doctor, you need to know what strain you have. Also, getting on anti-virals will help.

Remember you BF is going through a difficult time! I am living the same nightmare you are right now. "H" is NOT our problem, the infidelity is the problem.

Good luck!!! message me anytime, if you need to talk!:D

Your love life problems are greater than herpes

Please do see a doctor soon and get a swab test and a blood test; you may need another blood test in 3 months. It is always better to know for sure than to suspect and worry. Don't put yourself through any more negative speculations; get the facts.

As I see it, you have two problems here and neither of them is about herpes. One of them is that you have cheated on your boyfriend, this guy you say you could not imagine living without. And it's happened again. I am not judging you here or condeming your behavior. I am just pointing out that when you cheated (or got so drunk you did not know what you were doing, if that is what happened, or temporarily fell out of love with him or whatever motivated you), apparently you had, somewhere in your mind, decided you COULD live without him. That person, that part of you that cheated, was willing to take a risk at losing this relationship. So...you CAN live without him--you've proved it. You may be a stronger person than you think. You did, after all, live for a long time without him before you met him. Life without him is not something you have never done before. You may hope things will work out with him but you CAN live without him.

Second problem: He is willing to dump a woman with whom he has been in an intimate relationship, the mother of his child, because he caught herpes from her. Doesn't sound right. After all, if you both have it, then why dump you since he, then, could not get it? Obviously, it's not the herpes that's the problem but the cheating that it represents. So get over the idea that he would dump you over the herpes; it's not herpes, it's the relationship problems and your past behavior. He's just using the herpes possibility as a focal point for his unhappiness over your extracurricular sex.

You know, I don't know you but I have a feeling you might actually be better off without him. Your cheating shows that, at some level, you feel unready or unwilling to be with him forever. Or maybe you are young and need some more playtime in your life. And whatever has happened between you, it is clear he is not in a very forgiving mood about it if he could state that if you gave him herpes, he's leaving.

If he can't let the past go and accept you, and even accept the idea that he now has a minor medical condition that will probably never give him much trouble, then maybe it is time to move on. If he lives close to you, he can see his child often and you can both move on and, if possible, remain friends or become friends eventually. I am just suggesting that possibility. If you still want him in your life, I hope things work out and that you get what you want.

Good luck and let us know how the tests turn out.

BRAINYBLONE i must admit i liked your post and in a way your are spot on. I agree we have major relationship problems. I got with this guy when i was 16 am now 26 and i have always relied on him we moved in together within a year of dating so i guess i would find it hard him not being there. Most of my friends wants me to get rid of him but i do love him even tho i know the relationship could end in a nasty way in the future. He has been violent to me in the past he would never punch me in the face am talking about pushes and pulling my hair and spitting in my face that kind of thing. And he emotionally blackmails me when ever we have an argument he will kick me out the house and say am an unfit mother and take my son away from me. Am not saying its all his fault why i cheated but i believe if he payed me the attention i crave i would be a better partner. I have cheated on him twice the first one i told him about and we went to hell and back, when i done it again for the second time in july i dissappeared for 24 hours so hes probably got an idea what iv been upto but am keeping it shut this time. Anyway iv decided am geting the full check this saturday, my best friend is going to take me for support and il let you guys no how i get on . Thanks for your support.

      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
