consuming my head

Recommended Posts


so basically i had a doctor tell me this could be either a bacterial infection or genital herpes, this was well over a year. he tried to do a scraping he never got results. so now its a year later and i just got another what i think is outbreak. while in the meantime meeting an amazing person. my head is all over and wanna just pour it out. how do i tell him because the guilt is already thick, how do i deal myself, do i go 2morrow n make sure even though I'm already convinced and have since the last scare....????

Knowing is best

Okay, so you really don't know whether you have anything or not.

If you are having what appears to be an outbreak, my suggestion is to run quick like a bunny and get it swabbed and cultured while it is fresh. If you can't get in to your regular doc immediately, seek out an STI clinic where you can.

If the swab/culture doesn't work out, get a type specific IgG antibody blood test. You can do that even if you are not having an outbreak.

To me, knowing my status would be critical. How can you even begin to tell anyone else if you don't know yourself?

      When who gets a positive test? I have already tested positive (as you and I have discussed multiple times in other threads and I state here) and HIPA would prevent me for getting his results unless he willingly provides to me, but as I’ve also stated HE won’t get tested.  Ya can’t get blood from a stone. He has nothing that would even start to compensate for the pain and suffering, let alone the missed work because of the pain!

      @Balancelife when you get a positive test, sue him!

      Read what I wrote and start Googling.  Both the Einstein College of Medicine (William Jacobs and Betsy Herold)  and University of Pennsylvania/Trivalent (Harvey Friedman) seem to believe they are on the right track and have established relationships outside of their respective universities.  Yes, it’s early, but they are taking the bat and readying to swing at HSV.   Cross those fingers and stay positive!

      Where ever you are trolling, I’ll be right there.

      Fingers crossed!! Could you elaborate a bit on the research or maybe post a link to it? Definitely could be a little light in the dark 🙂
