Life is short, death is shorter.

Recommended Posts


Recently, I took my Economics exam and as I was leaving, I gave my friend "Dap" (Handshake if you will) as I left. He is a co-worker and friend I met this year.

2:45 pm I am driving on route 55 (a local road) and I notice something odd. There is a stop ahead with candles of flame. I am told to take a detour due to a serious accident

6:00pm. I get off work, I open my phone to a text message saying "Joey is dead"

6:30pm. I get home, and go on facebook, and found information about the accident

6:35pm. Support groups everywhere, everyones status is "R.I.P." Joey.

There was a head-on collision involving two of my fellow classmates, both I was friends with. One passed away (Joey) and the other is still in the hospital. I have never felt this feeling in my heart, a sinking, falling feeling.

R.I.P. Joey, a friend, a college, a co-worker.

You will be missed.

I'm sorry for your loss.

I try to remember that we should live for every second because that's all it takes.

      Amenamevir has a plasma half-life of 8-9 hours (as opposed to 2-3 hours for acyclovir), which means you're actively suppressing the virus for a much longer part of the day. Add to that the non-linear synergy of different mechanisms, and for many this combination could mean full symptom relief. We don't know yet, but it's not impossible. Can't wait for Amanalief to get approval for HSV and come to the US. It's all up to the FDA really. https://accp1.onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/full/10.1002/cpdd.630

      I think Dr. Jerome is just being cautious. I've followed what he's done and have 100% confidence in him. Predicting the exact number of years to a cure would be hard, but their last article about HSV makes me think it can't be too far off.

      Did you ever find out if this was herpes or not?

      @GotMeAtLast I doubt the doctor actually told you that, that doesn’t explain why you kept coming here looking for validation.  By your own admission, you have had oral HSV-1 for years. Further you have never swabbed positive from your genital region. Everyone is allowed to form their own conclusions on the basis of that truth. If you wish to conclude you have genital herpes, that’s OK. If I want to conclude you don’t, that’s OK.
