Do I deserve this?

Recommended Posts

Is this gods punishment for my philandering (actually I'm still a virgin but I autoinoculated myself via masturbating). If so I can take the pain but its not right that my family has to suffer. My parent really wanted me to get married to someone I love and have children but I don't think that is possible anymore. I wish I had never been born that way they would not have to feel the disappointment.

This is a very common virus. 1 in 5 men and 1 in 4 women have this and lead normal healthy sex lives. I could have had the virus for quite some time since mine layed dormant. I have genital hsv-1 and have only had one major outbreak last November and a minor one in April due to extreme stress. If you know what your triggers are for outbreaks than you can manage it better. Some people have outbreaks brought on by food with lots of arginine in them. You can click on the panel to your right and see what types of foods can trigger them. I wish you the best of luck! Sorry that you had this happen but keep in mind you can still have a family and wonderful sex life with this virus! I have two children and most likely carried the virus inactively at the time and my children are healthy.

i never really understood how we will say i love the Lord God and trust him with all my heart, get lost in the sins of the world <hears him calling you back but you ignore> and once the consequences hit us pulling us to reality of it all we fall to our knees and the first question is Why me God? in question... not saying that this is you but just wanted to share the thought. God loves you no matter what your family should love you no matter what and they should know no person in this world is perfect we have flaws and we make mistakes also theres a special person out there that'll love you .. and kids .. you may be blessed with many . keep the faith

Chiming in late......Many times we suffer from decisions WE make. He gives us his Word as a road map to follow. That road map leads to a rewarding, fulfilling life. When we take a step to the left or a step to the right or even a little shortcut, we get lost. He lovingly tells us exactly what we need to do to avoid unneccesary pitfalls. It's up to us to listen and follow HIS directions.

Like many, I threw that map to the side and followed my own course, a course that led to heartache, stress, strife, disease and many other things. I ended up with H, the father of my child ended up being a deadbeat, and someone I truly loved ended up being a jerk. I use to think "this has got to be my punishment." Well, if that's the case, God got it all wrong because I have friends who engaged in premarital sex (and eveything else under the sun), lived their lives far more recklessly than I did and they have loving husbands, great careers, and from what I know they don't have this virus! On the other hand, I have friends who did all the "right" things and life wasn't peachy keen for them.

We're not being punished, we're dealing with our choices. We're learning from them and growing.

When you see a beautful flower, remember - it had to go through a lot of dirt to get there.

All men make mistakes, but only wise men learn from their mistakes.

      If you take it multiple times you can expect the results to vary but Im not sure how wildly it might fluctuate.  If you had taken the test without a breakout, anything under 3.5 could possibly be a false positive.  Since you had a "nice breakout" after a sexual encounter and tested 2.82, I would assume it is not a false positive.  It sounds like your body is responding well with no additional breakouts.  As a consideration, a Western Blot test would be an additional test (very precise) if you are looking for clarity.

      So it doesn't come mixed at the right percentage?

      Is SADBE still effective for you? Thats interesting you went the naturopathic route. It sounds like they are might be more open to ordering meds off label.

      I'm a male and had sex with a girl about 18 months ago and got HSV-2 along with a nice breakout! I had my levels checked with labcorp through stdcheck.com - and my HSV 2 IgG, Type Spe was 2.82 I haven't had a breakout since and just got tested again and my level is 2.02. Does that mean that my body is potentially fighting it and infection levels are going down or will it just fluctuate up and down? I couldn't find any data on this. Everything I read just said if it's above 1.09 then you probably have it.
