Health Care Reform Bill

Recommended Posts


Does anyone know if anything in the HealthCare bill will inject money into herpes research, subsidizing or making meds cheaper, or better testing.

Also, does anyone know if this intrusion into privacy on many levels, especially controlling people's health habits, eating, fitness, age, etc. and related mandates, risk pool creation, taxes, and penalties,

Does anything in this bill plan to penalize people for risky sexual behavior or presence of STDs causing them to be placed in more expensive risk pools?

Who knows what was in the bill that was passed

Despite earlier promises by speaker Pelosi that the bill would be posted online for 72 hours prior to the vote, it was not and at 2,000 pages who has the time to read it all.

Plus the senate has yet to vote on their version of the legislation, then it has to be reconciled with the house bill. So what is finally chosen may look nothing like what the house just passed.

Hopefully this gets stalled in the senate and the government does not get a chance to take over 1/6th of our economy.

There have been some major announcements in finding vaccines and treatments for this virus. Search through the forums and you should be able to find links to these announcements.

Good luck!

the bill has been posted online for some time final language wasnt posted but should be now since the vote is over.

the bill doesnt affect funding for NIH or NIAD as far as i know (Research)

it doesn't reduce your rights under HIPAA and language about sexual health (abortions) has been struck down from the bill. i do not think there would be any way

to enforce such requirements anyway

      Ridiculous comment. They know a lot about herpes. And they know enough to be aware that the virus hides/resides in the neurons, not the blood. It amazes me how ridiculous some of the comments are on this forum. People actually thinking that simply purifying your blood and liver is a cure (or therapy) for herpes. Boy those scientists must be the dumbest people on the planet for them not to have known that [sarcasm]. Give me a friggin break!

      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?

      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.
