Wisconsin?

Recommended Posts

Moving4word

I've looked at support groups and chat places but there is nothing for Wisconsin (at least not what I could find). Anyone from WI?

I just found out the day after Thanksgiving...so it's still pretty new for me also. At first I thought about it every day and would cry a lot. I thought I would never get it off my mind, but just a couple weeks ago I noticed that I don't spend near as much time thinking about it anymore, I'm doing good : ) I'm no longer with the guy I got it from...we had been dating for a few months and he didn't know he carried it. He never had an outbreak : / So he felt (and still does) absolutely terrible. We still hang out once in a while and talk bc we are the only ones who know that we have the virus in common and its nice to have someone to talk to about it.

As time goes by I realize more and more how minor this virus is compared to so many other things. Especially working in health care, I see a lot and know that it could be so much worse.

How are you dealing with things?? Are you still with the person who gave it to you?? I'm so glad to have someone local to talk to also : )

The only support group I know of is online through Yahoo groups called SWAG. It's an email thing, but they do try to get together for social interaction every so often. Most of the people are down in Milwaukee-Madison area.

      So, it works as both preventative and cure? when can we expect phase 1 trail start?

"We believe that ∆gD-2 may be more promising than other previous vaccine candidates because it elicits a different type of immune response against HSV-1 and HSV-2 that is more effective in preclinical models at clearing virus and preventing the establishment of latency. In nonclinical models, immunization with ∆gD-2 elicits antibodies that facilitate the killing of infected cells, rapidly clearing the virus and thereby inducing sterilizing immunity," added William Jacobs, PhD, co-Inventor and Professor of Microbiology & Immunology at Albert Einstein College of Medicine."...

      They may not cure HSV but it looks like they are taking positive steps against HIV : https://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/life-style/health-fitness/he alth-news/hiv-cure-soon-human-trials-underway-in-china/articleshow/70316379.cms   "Hopefully, the second-phase trial will be completed in the latter half of 2021, and the third-phase clinical trial may start at the end of that year, which will involve thousands of volunteers in a trial to test the effectiveness of the vaccine to protect people against HIV," the researcher added."...
