Giving it to God

Recommended Posts

This week started out kind of rocky, I was trying to deal with the issue of H and then I find out that my ex is getting married. All I could do was just cry and wonder why is all this stuff is happening to me. Then I talk to my mother and she gave me a scripture John14:18. I cried and she began to soothe my hurt even though she still does not know what is wrong with me. I decided after I got off the phone with her I just needed to have a heart to heart with God. Talk about relief. I was ok and it all seem to be minor. Then tonight I watching the medical channel and I see this documentery called "Help I'm a Gaint". It was about people who have that disease were they can't stop growing and I begin to see how minor my problem is. I know it suck, but I began to think about those who were are less fortunate than me. How some people have to spend their whole lives in pain or what about those that do have the use of their limbs. I'm blessed Praise God! I believe and I know that he is going to work things out in my favor.

Beautiful post. I'm newly diagnosed and have turned to God for help. Unfortunately, I'm still struggling with the aspect of giving my problems to Him and trusting He will take care of it. HSV has really affected my ability to have faith. I pray for the strength to have continuous faith during such a trying time. Thank you for your post.

For, Not Against

Resist not evil, but overcome evil with good. -Jesus Christ

In a restaurant, I noticed a woman wearing a white sweatshirt with the word Pornography splashed across the front in big red letters. Printed in tiny black letters below the red ones were the words, "is not the will of God." The latter phrase was written in such small type that I had to be quite near the shirt to read it. "Pornography," however, was easily visible from across the street. While this woman was intending to campaign against pornography, she was actually advertising it. The moment I read the huge word on her sweatshirt, images of pornography came to my mind. She would have been more effective in her campaign if she wore a shirt advertising what she wanted to create, not destroy. She might have worn a shirt with an image depicting two people embracing lovingly, or some phrase that would have reminded onlookers of healthy sexuality.

The mind creates more of whatever it focuses on. For example, do not think about a pink elephant now. Whatever you do, you must not see a pink elephant in your mind. Of course, you are probably seeing a big pink elephant. The subconscious does not comprehend the meaning of not. Now think of your favorite elementary school teacher. Remember her face, name, and why you liked her. While you were thinking of the teacher, did you see the pink elephant? Probably not.

Jesus was a master metaphysician who understood that thoughts create. He advised, "Turn the other cheek," indicating that we must not give energy to what we do not want, but rather turn and look in the direction of what we do value. When Mother Teresa was invited to speak at an antiwar rally, she refused. "If you asked me to speak at a pro-peace rally, I would be there. I am not against anything. I am for love."

I pray to create heaven on earth by focusing on Your presence in all.

I bless the good and let all else go.


I saw this on another sight and i thought how true.. how we percieve a situation is how we determine how we will react to it,, and our mind is a powerful thing,, it will lead us to destruction of ourselves or create a more posotive enviroment in which we want to live.. our mind leads us to become successful or to live in doubt and insecurity.. how we percieve ourselves is the image we will give to others..

Thank you, Regret, for sharing that. It was thought provoking, and held so much truth and wisdom. So often we find ourselves focusing on the negative that we forget how much more effective we become when we focus on the positive, and use its power to overcome adversity and obstacles placed in our paths.

I needed that reminder. Thanks.

      Thanks for the answer, Wilson. Sorry for taking long to come back here, didn't really have the time to sit down on my computer and I've been trying to not think much about it.  I took a blood test and I'm waiting for the result. As of now, the redness covers a slightly bigger area and I feel some occasional itches. It definitely isn't herpes but at this point I've already accepted I have something, nothing like this ever happened before and honestly? If anything comes positive, I deserve it.  Maybe I'll come back with a current picture for the people that may end up in this post in the future. I will come back with the results as well, of course! I looked a lot into this forum and other people's stories have certainly opened my eyes to many things in life, so I'm thankful for that too!

      No problems @AlexUobby those queries are reasonable concerns and I hope these answers give you comfort. Every test has a minimum value (including between HSV-1 and HSV-2 from the same blood sample). This ranges from 0.01 to 0.80 in theory, but in practice more like 0.01 to 0.40. Any value in this range is very likely a minimum value and means an absence of the antibody being tested for. Hence if you get say a 0.3 value on this upcoming test, then the correct interpretation is that it is a minimum value and means no antibodies at all - negative. IgG testing is far from perfect in terms of them being a little too sensitive and generating false positives. This is because although they try and find the best antigen that attracts only an antibody specific to the virus being tested for, this is imperfect and other proteins may be present that attach to the antigen. This is true for all IgG testing. You will also find a very large number of people on this site whose low positives transpired to be negatives.

      @WilsoInAusI know, and I have read a lot of posts recently. And I think I know it better, and it won't just come out on my hand. And I am planning to do another Roche test. The result may come out next week. If it was still positive, does that mean I have herpes? I mean the baseline was 0.06. Or I understand it wrong? And there are still one thing that concerns me so much. In the 6 week test, my HSV I igg was 0.02 and my HSV II igg was 0.06. I know they both were low. I was a little worried that HSV II igg might be on the process of seroconversion, since the HSV II igg was three times large than the other. I know it wasn't logical, but worried. I just don't quite get how they suddenly jump to 1.2 even 1.9 after 6 weeks if there weren't seroconversion. And I saw a lot of people in this forum, and their value almost stay in the same level. And that really concerns me a lot.

      Hello @Lou_95 and thank you for taking the time and having the bravery to come forward to seek help. I hope you find some assistance and find solace.  What has occurred here happens to many couples and it is important to note that it highly likely that this has absolutely no questions surrounding fidelity etc. The first thing to note is that your assumption is the other way around. When a person has their first herpes outbreak, then it is extremely likely that they have been just infected by the other party. Herpes does not wait around taking its own sweet time to cause an outbreak. When first infected, you are in a sense 'defenceless' against the virus so havoc can be wreaked - well the lesions that you experienced. If your partner is quite sure they have not been infected genitally with herpes in the past, then the most rational explanation is as follows. Your partner may well have an oral HSV-1 infection that causes oral cold sores, even if he has no living memory of cold sores! You hence may have become infected through oral sex about 2-6 days before you noticed the sores. Your diagnosis may have included the type of herpes involved, was it 1 or 2?  If my guess above is right, then you both now carry HSV-1 and cannot technically reinfect each other, or at least give your immune 6 months to get up to full speed. He is now already immune and is incredibly unlikely (if there is any chance at all) of becoming infected genitally). If this is the story, then that's kind if it for you two, no need to worry at all about issues of protection or antivirals etc. However hopefully you have the type data to proceed to that stage quickly. Otherwise it might be useful for an additional test by either you or he or both.

      Hello, I'm new here and was diagnosed with genital herpes 2 weeks ago. I have a lot of questions but dont know where to start. My boyfriend and I have been in a faithful relationship for 6.5 years now, and I just had my first outbreak and he has never had one before. We are unsure of who had it to begin with, I assume it was me considering I had an outbreak first. I feel awkward and weird in my relationship, and sex life now, even though he was very understanding and accepting with the situation. He said it could have been either of us and there isn't anything we can do to change it.. which is true. I dont really know what I'm looking for here, maybe just some advice and others personal experiences with the same situation as myself.
