Again, more encouraging research and funding being done!! I've only recently been diagnosed with H, but it seems like the

general interest and research being done about HSV is at an all time high. Very, very heartening to know that experts are

hard at work! Also good to know that OUR donations to Dr. Bloom and Dr. Cullen have made a signficant impact. Keep up

the support for their work, and keep shining in 2011!

yup, this one is pre-clinical, so isnt even in phase 1 trials yet. BUT 35 millions bucks is a LOT of money, and MIT scientists are SMART, so they may get a good move on this. I really hope something happens in the next 5 years while I'm still in my 20's!!!!

If we want something to happen sooner, we HAVE to make noise. I've already signed the petitions, have you? This is the difference between 2 years, 5 years, 10 years, or 20. You have to make noise! I'm going to send letters to Oprah, my senators, etc. this weekend as well!

Visionsblue, thanks for your passion... I agree NOISE! The only thing I might add is that if people can help post the petitions on various blogs, sites, etc to drive more traffic to them. We have over 1250 emails in 6 weeks. It would be great if we could boast 10,000 emails by June. Now, that would be some NOISE!

      Thank you. Yes, I was on Positive Singles and met someone I was with for 2 years. We recently broke up but may work things out. Truth be told, dating is touch. With or without a virus.

      A possible problem is that it will possibly be overshadowed by emails regarding other health problems such as cancer which carry no stigma and therefore have a more massive amount of requests.

      @nydb1 I feel you can be quite confident that you do not have genital herpes here.  Please return to your doctor for further diagnosis and treatment.

      Maybe this has been asked already, but is there way we could get everyone on the site to write emails to the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation?  If they got 1000s of emails about this issue maybe they would fund people like the researchers at Penn?????????

      Hey Folks. I have been taking Acyclovir 400MG 3 times a day orally since 1/17. It seems to have helped the burning, but the pain stills comes and goes. Should I continue to take the antivirals? Is it normal for a burning pain to last this long? I think I may continue to take the prescription until I am out of pills, but I am concerned that I am still in pain.
