Scared and don't know what to do

Recommended Posts

scared22

Hi everyone,

I'm new to this site and looking for some advice. I have genital HSV 1. I was in a relationship for 2 years with someone and suddenly had a severe problem down south about 4 months ago. I went to the doctor and they told me they suspected herpes. My blood test came back negative but culture was positve. I went back this last week to get my blood tested again and it came back positve. I broke up with the guy I was with, which has now put me in a new predictament. Not only because I have herpes but because the guy I was with was my first. I haven't been in the dating world before, and now I'm entering it with this.:madd: I'm scared and worried. I'm only 22 and I don't know much about this myself much less to try to inform a new partner that already scared when they hear the words.

There are many people your age who are dealing with this themselves. There are some good online dating sites for H+ people too, positivesingles.com and mpwh.net. But you don't have to limit yourself to dating people who already have herpes either. Read all you can on this virus, but also beware as there is a lot of false information out there on herpes too. There is a lot of good information on the right side of this website. The more you learn about it, the easier it will be for your to deal with it and be able to tell a future potential partner about it.

After you have made two posts to this forum, you can go to the chat room and there are many people on there that can help too! Hope to chat with you on there soon!

First step. Learn about yourself. Learn how H is going to affect you and not affect you. Learn about H itself.

You can stress yourself out with the messages in your mind going round and round and round and round and so on, about what if and what will they think, so try to quiet that part of your mind down for now while you take your first step.

      It’s really scary and depressing to find out you have this virus. When I found out, last Wednesday, I went through the emotions and the pain of a severe breakout (8 in total, all in separate spots). Today, almost a week later, I can finally move without wanting to scream. My best friends, during this time, were my detachable shower head, Naproxen, and Lidocaine 5% cream. (If you do not have a detachable shower head I recommend one or get a Peri Bottle. They help for keeping clean and for pain relief) Just as everyone here, we want this to be over with. The pain to go away. To feel “normal” again. I’ve researched and read everything I could get ahold of. Then I read about Monolaurin. It's a substance that's derived from lauric acid that is found in coconut oil and human breast milk. It supposedly helps immensely with our virus from hell!  I read that this woman started using it and she hasn’t had a break out in 2 years AND when she does feel one coming on she doubles up on her dose and BOOM, it’s gone! I ordered some off of Amazon and can’t wait for it to get here! What can it hurt, right? Seriously, what do we have to lose (besides a breakout, hopefully!) Here’s some info if you have never heard of it and want to know more. Good luck and keep your head up!   https://www.verywellhealth.com/the-benefits-of-monolaurin-89482

      To be fair it would be hard to prove, you could have an oral infection for years before

      No they will stay anonymous due to not wanting them to be outed no doubt. That's if anything goes further cause it will be hard to prove damages hsv wise surely.

      I am doing this, but also taking other supplements at the same time. I drink a ton of water so it's easy to have lemon water on hand. I am on week 2 now.
