people are so hurtful!

Recommended Posts

Ok - so I'm newly diagnosed and have been positive for one hour and then feeling like the world has ended the next hour. It doesn't help that I'm still feeling burning pains (5 weeks now). So, I have turned to a prayer group that I have been a part of online. I have simply asked for others to please pray that my pain from herpes goes away.

Well, it is absolutely amazing....

Not a single person has prayed with me for this. When you have prayed for someone, you click on an icon and it keeps count of the number of people who have prayed. When I look through the threads, the threads above and below mine have all been prayed for by 8-17 people. Mine has 0 still. Everyone is just skipping mine. It is really disheartening :(

Ok - my self pity party is over now....

I'll pray for you also :) I don't understand why people can't be more sympathetic to other's. It doesn't matter if it's cancer or whatever maybe the ailment we all deserve to be included in prayers. So many people already have hsv-1 and don't even know it but they are the first one's to cast judgement on other's and that is not being a christian to cast judgements.

God would be the first person to tell those people in your prayer group that they are not acting like good, compassionate Christians. As Christians, we love and support each other, through good AND bad times. God cries with us when we are hurting, and he hears us. I'll say a prayer for you now.

      The answer to this question is probably somewhere between most of them and all of them. As a point of clarity, you can do a blood test to see if your body has made antibodies to HSV 1 and/or HSV 2. The majority of people have been exposed to HSV 1 which normally causes cold sores around the mouth but is more often clinically silent. The percentage of people with exposure to HSV 2 is between about 20% and 40% with only some of these people having any outbreaks at all. That means that about every third poster on this forum has had an exposure to HSV 2 and probably doesn't know it. About 15% of Americans have genital herpes outbreaks. To the pornstar who said she didn't get it in the industry, she actually does not know where she got it. It could come from your first partner, last partner, or some partner in between. You can get genital HSV 1 from oral sex and not have an outbreak until years later and still have no idea who gave it to you. It is usually transmitted when an outbreak is not present. HSV is more or less a normal consequence of sex. Most people who have been exposed don't know they have been and are subject to 0 outbreaks or outbreaks every couple of months or when they get stressed. While I do know porn performers who are told not to film when they have an outbreak, antibody testing is relatively expensive when the result will not change someone's clinical outcome unless they choose to take Valtrex for prophylaxis, so it is not routine, nor is it routine if you go to your doctor for an STD check-up. These performers have unprotected skin-on-skin genital contact on a regular basis. It would be basically be impossible for a porn performer to not have a latent infection after 10-20 filmed scenes. That would be about 8 skin-to-skin contacts with herpes patients even if they were just having sex with random people in the general population, Add heavy partner porn performers to the equation, especially given the fact that the men are exposed to over 100 women in just a few years, and it is basically not possible that they don't have the virus.

      Hey @MyWarrior I think speaking further with your penis issues would be a good idea. We can't really tell much about what it might be, but it sure does not sound like genital herpes at all. Note that oral herpes causes issues orally and not anywhere on the body such as the penis.
    • WilsoInAus
      Hey @Ifeelempty that looks a fairly standard fordyce spot inflammation or abrasion. Herpes lesions (which would be much more significant than that if recently infected!) do not present like that, and you certainly wouldn't squeeze them with your finger nails (the pain would prevent that!).
