You All Are A Blessing...


Recommended Posts

This post has to be quick since I'm on my way to work...but I just wanted to take the time to let you all know how glad and inspired I am by you all on this site. I haven't been on here but for a couple of days but to see that I'm not alone in this and that everyone is trying to do the same as I am...This year has been one of the most trying times in my life. To be in a committed relationship for 11 years, married for 6 of them, living everyday as best as I thought I could, worrying about the smallest of things like work, why he didn't take the trash out or put the toilet seat down was the biggest of my worries before last Nov. There can be ALOT of negatives with hsv2 but the one thing it has taught me is that I can't and won't live my life in a bubble. I have began to spend more time looking at the things in my life that make me happy. I won't let this take my spirit. I gave it one year too many. I still have moments where I feel down...especially when I start my mornings feeling good then mid-afternoon feel the tingle of an OB :madd:, God how I hate that. But between immediate prayer and quick action, I move on. The other day when I found this site I was hesitant at first. Any thing that made me think too hard about this virus made me have an OB, LOL! But something told me to just test the waters and I'm so glad I did. For those on here that just don't know how to cope...I feel your pain and you are in my prayers. And for those of you that have moved past this issue and believe that you have hsv2 but it doesn't have you, move over because you have one more that's about to join in on that fight ;)! God Bless You ALL!

You encourage me...

You encourage me to have this same sort of thought process....

It's still taking me a while, but I've begun to notice, that I still get up every day, still go to work, still laugh, still make love, still smile, still put in the effort to make myself look beautiful, sometimes I don't FEEL beautiful (when the stigma attaches itself to my worries), but I realize it's only a temporary thought.

I realize that I still have repetitive thoughts of many things in life whether they worry me or not, it's not just repetitive thoughts about having Herpes. This will be a long road, but I know that I will get through it. Sometimes its hard to believe than other times, but I have to start believing that the crying will eventually stop, and my life WILL continue on like it always has.

      Hi @Throwaway765 yes that all makes sense and you’ve pretty well reached the right conclusions except for a very significant fact!! You are right, receiving genital HSV-2 from oral sex is unheard of, just not feasible given how people have it and whether it actually sheds in infectious quantities or not. Safely rule this out. Now HSV-1; once you have this as you do orally, you have immunity against infection anywhere else on the body, it is also not feasible.  The symptoms you describe are also not related to herpes in the absence of lesions.

      Thanks for your response! I received unprotected oral 10 weeks ago and immediately after had stinging in my glans and weird nerve pain. I am positive for HSV1 due to cold sores I got as a child, but as recent as 9 weeks after this exposure have tested negative for HSV2.    im nervous that I may have acquired hsv1 again on my genitals since HSV2 is rarely acquired from oral sex and doesn’t shed hardly at all, but haven’t seen any sores yet. Just weird symptoms and this started recently in my buttcrack when I was taking antibiotics.   Any advice or perspective would be greatly appreciated. @WilsoInAus

      Hi @Throwaway765 and welcome. There is absolutely no concern over this being related to herpes. Something must be concerning you as to the possibility of herpes… what is it?
