Wishing Well

Hoping to have some fun with this.

I live in 5 bed house with 5 people. Where are some creative places to stash the stash?:cool:

Perhaps you can put the pills in another container like a Pain Reliever Bottle or empty vitamin bottle that no one would think anything of. I hide my condoms in my tampon box and I have a hole in my ceiling to hide things in as well. Haha get creative. If you can't trust your roommates lock yo door.

I've tucked them into a football shin guard, which is under my bed. Genius.

I wonder if its better just to leave it out as most people wouldn't even know whast its for.

Mine aren't hidden

I keep my Valtrex in my medicine cabinet. But, then, all of my friends already know I have genital herpes so it's not a secret in my crowd. However, I was thinking, that for those who don't know about my infection, in case someone came to visit me and snooped into my medicine cabinet.....I was thinking of writing my story briefly in 10 pt. type and pasting it right next to the Valtrex bottle so that they can get the whole story instead of having to speculate about it! ("Yes, guest snooper, I take Valtrex to control my genital herpes. Got herpes type2 15 years ago from a cheating boyfriend who is now deceased although, I am sorry to relate, I did not kill him; lung cancer did. I've had it for years, don't get outbreaks too often, take Valtrex when I do. I'm over the embarrassment now so feel free to discuss it with me if you like.")

For those who need to keep their medication hidden, here are two suggestions:

My cousin keeps her Valtrex in a One-A-Day vitamin bottle. Works, no one ever notices.

I have a hollowed out book with a very boring title which I keep on my bookshelf and anything I want to hide goes there. If I still had a pot stash, that's where it would go.

I live alone so I don't really need to hide things. I just keep it in a drawer in the kitchen with my other meds.

When I hadn't disclosed my herpes status with people, I was afraid of someone finding it and I hid it where I keep my socks.

I have Lysine supplements in my draw at work. People wouldnt even know what they're for. Over here I could only find them in a health store with all the protein shakes and steriods.

Over here, as far as I know, no one really would know what valtrex and acciclovoir are unless you had it or new someone who did. Maybe people wild OHSV-1 might know but I doubt it. I think its because its prescription only so no advertising on tv.

I'm going to be switching to acyclovir and only people who have H know what it's for. I'm not switching because of the obviousness of what it is, insurance purposes. I have a pill case that I put one a valtrex in when I may not be coming home due to staying at a friend's or whatever. I don't want to bring the bottle that says what it is.

For the Moment i keep my Acyclovir in a 7 day pill container in my purse...i'm not too afraid of someone seeing the actual pill bottle itself, it's just that because i have to take it 3 times a day; i find this better to ensure i take my meds. Great Thread btw

      I agree completely with @Dutchy and what she said. You are always going to think about this. Its best to get a conclusive answer if you can. I am not sure it is herpes. Sorry to ask, but: Is there any chance you could have been sexually assaulted at a young age and not remember? or  Were you  ever a wrestler or Boxer ? Those are the only two instances I can think of that would cause HSV 2 if you haven't had sexual contact  Chances are high that you don't have it. And, if it turns out to be HSV1 , you already have that , so no worries there either. I have had 2 Drs say a bacterial infection on my face was HSV1 . I have never had HSV1, My IGG tests results have always been negative too for HSV1 in the past and present too. ( It was really a bacterial infection, I had had an injection and was touching the area a lot and I infected it with my dirty hands. I then went to a infectious disease specialist who told me looked  bacterial not viral).  I did sadly get infected with Hsv2 almost 2 years ago now ( 1 year after the facial bacterial infection) and it was intense and severe. If I had had HSV1 my outbreak would have been less severe from what I understand. My Hsv 1 IGG tests are STILL negative. Those drs were wrong. Maybe yours are too. And if it is from a wetsuit, then people need to know that its a possible risk.  I truly wish your results to be negative.  You deserve peace. Best wishes to you.

      @Rain and Ashes get a blood test, don't go by visual diagnosis, esp. if you  are a virgin and haven't had sexual contact. It could be  a staph infection or somethign else Drs misdiagnose things all the time. Its terrible and unprofessional of them to refuse to do the bloodwork, and to only visually diagnose if you haven't had sex.  If its a privacy issue or not wanting it on your records, then  maybe go to an anonymous place and pay out of pocket. And if it is indeed HSV2, and you got it from a wetsuit, then there is a lot we don't know about this virus and your story needs to be shared, if it is indeed true. Best of Luck to you!

      I totally see where you're coming from. Having herpes made me feel like the biggest piece of shit I could be, thought it would be nice to kill myself and not have to deal with it, but not a serious thought, just a fantasy.  I was diagnosed over 3 years ago with genital HSV-2. I can't be 100%, but I think I got it from my ex. Over the last 2 years, I've been hitting personal development hard and trying to get totally comfortable with myself for everything I am, including herpes. I've improved things about myself that I've struggled with my entire life and I won't stop striving to be the real me, not take everything in life so hard or seriously, and be somebody I could respect. I've become more confident, which I've never been. Now I see herpes as a little bit of a blessing (haha crazy), but without this, I may have never confronted my issues with myself and changed it. I am more empathic to myself and to other people rather than being self-centered and shallow like I was sometimes. Herpes forced me to love myself and become more resilient. I'm telling you this because it's normal to beat yourself up over this and feel ashamed, but fuck it. Don't feel ashamed. Own it and get so comfortable with it that nobody's opinion could sway your feelings about yourself. I don't mean tell everyone unless you want to. I've told my immediate family and 4 friends recently and they were all very receptive and said it's not a big deal - these are people I trust. And for some of us, we know it's not as big of a deal physically as we imagined it would be before we contracted it or during the worst outbreak(s) - for me it was emotionally destructive because I let it get to me. Let me tell you my first disclosure story.  A month and a half ago, I got drunk and was talking to this guy, a friend of a friend. We hit it off and were having fun. We got pretty drunk and hooked up and I didn't tell him. Wanna know how I felt after that? Anxious, fucking horrible, like a terrible person. And I'm not judging others here, but I judged myself hard because I felt like I had hurt someone. This was eating me alive. I was going to tell him the next day and then he was out with friends so I didn't want to ruin his night. Two days later I talked to him and asked him to call me (live in different cities). I had practiced how I was going to say this over and over. I told him we got a little carried away and asked if we used a condom (couldn't remember), we didn't. I apologized and told him my status and that I'm on repressive meds so it doesn't surface, but it's still possible that it would. I was expecting him to lash out, call me names, tell our mutual friends and all of his own friends, which would be his right. I was lucky and I didn't feel like I deserved his actual response due to the situation of not disclosing before anything happened. He said, "It's okay. I'll make a doctor's appointment to get tested and get on meds if I need to. It sounds like you've been beating yourself up about this, so stop doing that. It's fine. I had a condom in my bag that I found the next day, I should have used it. Really, don't worry." Seriously, this is how the conversation went. He tested negative and is going to test again in 6 months. And we've been talking for the last month and a half since, he told me he's glad he met me and had fun, and he's coming to visit for a weekend in October. I talked to our mutual friend, who one of my best friends that I trust; I told her after I told him and confirmed he hasn't told anyone else about my status (I asked him not to unless he does have it, then he can say whatever he wants).  The reason I'm telling you this is because I've learned an incredibly important lesson from this. I know that not disclosing is against my moral code and I don't want to give this to anyone without giving them the choice first because I wasn't given the option and it destroyed me for awhile. Condoms don't guarantee it won't be passed on. If I want to feel good about the person I am, this is a conversation I have to have with anyone I'm going to have any sexual contact with.  I also know I was lucky with this guy being so kind. He didn't have to be that way. This taught me a valuable lesson too. Choose wisely who I want in my life and who I trust. I'm not worried anymore what other people think of me; what do I think of them? If somebody says no after disclosing, that is their right and it has no bearing on me, it's not a diss. They don't want herpes and neither did I; maybe there could be a friendship there instead. Some people don't see this as a deal breaker though and I know I don't feel bad about myself for telling somebody the truth and giving them the option. I'm not proud about not disclosing first, but I made it right and know that's how I will handle it from now on.  I'm not trying to tell anyone what to do either. This was my experience and this is just what I learned.

      Thanks for the post! We appreciate it can sometimes be difficult to talk about the subject or even to go and see your GP about it. Thankfully theres lots of online companies now that do an online consultation to get your herpes meds delivered in the post. Have a look at PostMyMeds Ltd, https://postmymeds.co.uk
