hell5410

Hello, just finally started to accept that I have this infection now. I found out on 5/04/10, hence the user name hell5410. I'm glad to know that here is a place we can go to talk about our problems. The reason for the late acceptence was that I had been waiting for my WB test just to confirm it. I heard that it is the gold standard. The results just simply said evidence of past HSV2 infection. I sort of wish that I didn't ask for the test, because ingnorance was bliss, I haven't had any syptoms, Praise God. Thats the upside of this awful perdicament.:(

dont lose hope... educate yourself. education is the key to any solution for any problem. surround yourself with support (this is a great place to start) and be strong in who you are... this is just a bump in the road... you are still YOU... no matter what a diagnosis says. Hold up your head, be you... educate!! You will find someone that loves you, you will be okay.

much love, ML

Funny

How are you doing today. I had a good day today. I got nails n pedi, plus I did my hair. That always makes me feel better. Plus a guy flirted with me today. I can still flirt at least that hasn't changed for me. Sorry to hear about you being newly diagnosed, it is so depressing, and really hard to sleep or wake up because that is the first thing you think about. I wonder if I will ever stop thinking about the situation.

getting better... the ob finally went away, still feel achey... weirdest thing... now every little ache and twinge gets me all worked up waiting for ob... *sigh* turning into a hyperchondriac!!! i think about it alot... cry once in a while... i feel so unsexy, unattractive... i pulled away from my bf for a bit, just felt dirty and didnt wanna get touched.... i hope this all goes away....

The only nice thing about all this is having my bf with me... he still feels terrible (he gave to me) and we've been talking a lot... he makes me sleep, makes me eat (lost my appetite from valtrex), lysine helps alot... i know its not a death sentence. i know it doesnt define me.... its just something new and weird to deal with.... i always worry i will inadvertently give it to my kids or something ridiculous like that... paranoia... must be one of the steps of dealing with this... lol

funny, even though my bf is H+, i still feel gross and worry bout him getting it somewhere else on his body (mouth esp).... guess i need to just enjoy that he loves me, get over and get on....

p.s. i agree, flirting is 100% okay! and pedis are the BEST!

glad ur doing better

Glad urn doing better as for me right now I feel low, I also feel kinda of numb. I got more great news yesterday. My ex boyfriend love of my life is getting married. Yeah for me, right. I wish I could just forget about this and live my life normally and not worry about it until I meet someone I mean why stress when I still haven't meet anyone.

honey, stop worrying about everyone and everything else... just take care of yourself.... After my divorce several yrs ago, i spent so much time making myself crazy about what he was doing, what my kids were doing.... it wasnt till i started taking care of me and doing all those "shoulda woulda couldas" that I really truly found myself... I took martial arts, art classes, started learning a new language, spent more time with my kids.... H5410- take this time to focus on you.. the real you-find out what it is you are all about, what you want, the things you like to do... you would be surprised how much you didnt know about yourself... the way i look at it, being H+ means you gotta learn to focus on the relationship (not physicallity)... and in order to focus on a relationship, you have to know yourself..... so start there and THEN you can find that one that is made just for you..... =)

      More confusion! So the results have come back for both of the partners that I've been with over the last 3-4 years and they are both negative for type 1 and type 2. Where do I go next? Any advice?

      please look through the forum in exact and careful detail and inform yourself of less than usual circumstances to cover yourself.

      auto inoculation is rare and it can happen. off objects is debated but some people claim it happens. some people have experienced it happens easily.

      so you know practice good hygiene. i personal think use a heated towel rail and make sure your towels are fully hot and dry. there were studies in the 80's showing it can live on towels for 75 hours. The herpes association say most experts agree it cannot be caught off a towel. That is most experts not all. Some people end up with it on their body and one has to wonder how? Towels I would guess.

      Things that tend to stay kinda wet or so on. cups are another one that fit that i think.

      I remember being at university once and being in the bathroom while a girl was on the phone to her friend.She thought she had a bite on her face but clear to me someone with herpes had kissed her on the cheek recently, it didnt look typical just her skin peeling. 

      I am not an expert though or a doctor so do your own research.

      Update: The creme that contains the tetrapodal zinc oxide still isn't available at Gorch Fock Apotheke Kiel. I called them today: same status as last year and they have no further information on when and if it will be available again.

      Lilian, the zinc acetate we are talking about here is different from the tetrapodal zinc oxide that you are mentioning. But thanks for the reminder. The ointment that contains the tetrapodal zinc oxide still isn't available at Gorch Fock Apotheke Kiel. I called them today: same status as last year and they have no further information on when and if it will be available again.

      I've had neg swabs but I am sure you'll get it. Follow the process. I haven't read the thread in exact detail, but if you have documentation of doctors mishandling your case when you get/ if you get a poss inform them in writing as well as the medical board I think.  Under diagnosis is as problematic as false pos and reducing transmission is good.
