Still new to all this

Recommended Posts


Hey everyone, Im still pretty new to all this and just looking to meet others in the same situation. I found out a little over a month ago and now trying to deal with this the best way I know how. I have accepted it and moved on. It dosent seem that bad except now that I am single again it seems kinda hard for me to get out and try to date again knowing that Ill eventually have to have "the talk" lol. Anyways, I am a pretty laid back person and always willing to meet people and make new friends so I just wanted to say Hello H world...

Welcome to the club!

You must have done some extensive research into this virus to be at the place you are at.

I know it may be intimidating thinking about sharing your secret with someone else. Are you aware that there are dating sites specific to herpes and other STDs? mpwh.net and positivesingles.com are two of the more popular ones.

And are you aware there is a support group in Austin? The one here in Atlanta really helped me out, and I even ended up dating a girl I met there for a while.

Hi Ya

Welcome to the club and this site. I have to say i admire the way your dealing with this. I went through a whole spectrum of emotions when i first found out and although now im pretty much walking alongside my diagnosis there are times when im compleately out of step with it.

This is a great site and you'l find lots of information and support here. I hope you continue to go from strenth to strenth..

Just a small after thought tho.... if you do find you hit a phase where you feel like falling apart for a while... its ok to do that.

Everyones here to support you.

Good luck...

      But you were probably also exposed to HSV-1,2,3,4,5,6ab,7,8. There are also about 80 other human viruses and you would have been exposed to a dozen of those. There are tens of different bacteria that also transmit during sexual activity. There are also hundreds of possible  causes generated with your body.

      The sad part is I was exposed to HSV 2 so judging by what information Im told, If I had herpes mine would almost definitely show up on an IGG test by now.  Supposedly I’d have less than an 8% chance of it not showing up on a blood test. All I can do is go off the information Im given.   My thing is this: I need to know what is causing this.  If the medical world wants to tell me that I dont have herpes, fine.  What is it that I have then? And how do I get rid of it? Otherwise, being negative for herpes means nothing to me.  Because Im still positive for something, and they cant even figure out what the hell it is! Because my body definitely changed after I was exposed to it.

      That’s incorrect for recent infections where it nears 100%. Those people have a positive swab.

      Herpes is not some default magic rabbit that comes out of the hat and makes sense out of the irrational.

      @RainyDay2 i am about to pull out the big bht guns. Hey if i can get rid of the symptoms forever and never blow positive, ill take it. My other thought was hpv but i know i was exposed. The last clinician i saw definitely thought my lip things looked herpetic and sajd she's seen urethral herpes before too.    Igg can be forever negative in some, i have heard hsv1 has less accuracy with igg
