Saw an ex last night...

Recommended Posts

I feel like telling this story over and over for some reason, but i don't have anywhere else to tell it. Maybe some of you will appreciate this.

The first guy i dated after finding out i had H was this cute, random chance meeting. He was really nice and we got along well, but he had just gotten out of a relationship and didn't want anything serious, and i've got a 5 year old and a 10-year plan and i wasn't into casual or booty calls. He was my first ever "talk" and he took it really well. Anyway, things fizzled out cause he decided it was more fun to go drinking and stand me up than actually talk to me. Whatevs.

I saw him last night at a book store. Actually, my daughter saw him first. I was talking to the sales guy and she kept pulling on me. Finally i turned around to see what she needed, and there he was. I know i looked like crap, with my hair all messy and bags under my eyes, but he was in the SAME work clothes he wore 2 years ago. He'd changed his hair, i don't know if it was shorter or longer, but he still had those INCREDIBLE blue eyes. They should really be immortalized in a movie somewhere (although he'd never show up to filming!).

We chatted, i asked about his nieces, blah blah blah. Then he caught sight of my wedding band, and didn't even finish his goodbye sentence before his back was turned to me and he was walking away! Not that i expect less of him, but it actually kinda made me feel good - like i said "See what you missed?" without saying anything or even meaning to. No matter what problems I may have had, his were bigger and caused him to miss out on a fabulous thing. So, his loss! :)

I just had to share. Thanks!

Ah, story of my life. Although I think it's far more likely that they don't want anything serious....with ME. You give hope to all of us.

      There are currently two Phase 2 clinical trials of the effect of valacyclovir (i.e. Valtrex) at the NIH and University Hospital in Umeå, Sweden respectively for the sole purpose of measuring the impact to Alzheimers of taking Valacyclovir in HSV1+ individuals. Anti-viral Therapy in Alzheimer's Disease https://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT03282916?recrs=ad&cond=Herpes+Simplex&rank=10 Feasibility and Effects of Valaciclovir Treatment in Persons With Early Alzheimer's Disease (VALZ-Pilot) https://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT02997982?recrs=ad&cond=Herpes+Simplex&draw=2&rank=11 We should have some compelling evidence by about this time next year as the Swedish study has been going since 2016 and is set to conclude in April of next year.  The NIH study is set to conclude in 2022 but either way, on simply the mounting causal evidence, I'm going to continue taking my antivirals.

      It still sucks for those of us in our 40's. Granted you will have to deal with it a lot longer than I, but it still sucks.
