Is there life after herpes

Recommended Posts

LifeIsUnexpected

I am newly diagnosed, yesterday I got my results as a matter of fact. It was a long, scary, and exhausting week. I feel as if my doctor was of no help. She came in, gave me the results, said here's a script you can either take it daily or just during an outbreak, and told me to come back next week for more cervix cancer testing. The guy that I have been sleeping with for over a year is getting his results today. I'm confused that my blood work showed positive, but a year ago it was negative and I have never had any symptoms or anything! This guy was just a friend with benefits and I am surprised that he didn't cut and run on me. He came over last night to try to comfort me. I guess I should be thankful that he is willing to hang out and be there for me. But the long term of he and I being together will never happen. I guess I figured that if he has it and I do also, we just as well step it up and date, because I can't see life with someone that doesn't have this. UGH!!!!!! FML!

I married the woman who gave me herpes. BIG mistake. We struggled on for 5 years but in the end just fought like cat and dogs. Relationships are hard enough and if the only thing you have in common is a shared std then you're in for a tough time. Dont worry, there will be lots of eligible men for you to choose from and if someone cares enough about you then the fact of you having herpes will be of very little consequence.

Thank you! I am just lost, scared, and unsure of what life is going to be like now. I think I am still trying to wrap my head and my heart around this. I never thought this would happen to me and here I am. I know I still have so much to learn about it, but everything I read just sends me into panic and makes me confused. Maybe I should just stay away from site until I have fully accepted what has been handed to me. I guess being hit with having H and the pre-cancer cell on cerivx all in one day might have sent me over the edge.

      @WilsoInAus thanks for the clarification. I am currently taking into account all possibilities that i might encounter, since my fiance is positive HSV-1. I am preparing myself for the future, if I however eventually get infected from him. Im on the brink . We will have an appointment with a Doctor on friday, to justify more about this and I am so anxious of knowing what the Dr will say. I am scare it might effect my decision of marrying him. How I wish this virus could be kill, how I wish life hasn't be this cruel to us. The day for us to tie the knot is just around the corner, everything had been prepared and we are tested with this news. Im showing my support to him right now but deep down, Im sooo scared. It's truly an adventure

      Note that it’s not an infection as we know it the eye, these are caused by bacteria. Sometimes though the virus will attack the cornea and cause issues. It is estimated about 1 in 50,000 people per year will suffer some vision impairment from HSV-1. However these people are almost always not treated with antivirals where success appears to be over 90% for preventing permanent damage.

      Hi @patpat I encountered same situation like yours. I really want to know what is your next step. Did you finally get married? How is your life now? Any advice?  I know this is an old thread but this is related to me. Would be so much relieve to be able to talk to someone in the same shoe. Hope you still buzzing around honeycomb

      BHT has helped me soooo much! When I first got infected my outbreaks were constant .. one would heal up and there comes another ... it was terrible . I was so fuxking depressed and miserable. I cut out the “trigger foods” took vitamin c and lysine .. drank apple cider vinegar .. nothing worked until BHT!!! Now that I take BHT i rarely have Outbreaks. If I do it’s because I sometimes forget and skip taking it .. or I eat some trigger food + forget the Bht .. but even then my outbreaks are SOOOO a mild compared to before . I’ve had outbreaks that have disappeared in a day . Sometimes I up my dosage on BHT when I do have a mild outbreak , and apply topically. It really has been such a blessing to find out about BHT
