Thought I say hello!

I guess I should have come here about 10 months ago when I first contracted this crap. It's been very hard doing this alone. Thanks to all that help here.

Butterfly of the Moment

Hello there, I joined the day I was diagnosed almost 2 years ago (wow!) People on here really helped me work through my feelings and helped me educate myself. I stopped coming on this site for a few months (just living my life and didn't have too much time or a desire to get on the internet)...but life goes on whether or not you want it to. If you don't train yourself to think positively life is going to be harder and sadder than it should. I am still with my boyfriend of many years who did not even think twice about being with me after I told him...we don't even talk about it anymore (just because it's not something we think about that much anymore). Of course I recently experienced the death of someone very precious to me so that put quite a few things in perspective. It was never really about me having the virus that brought me down, it was the ignorant opinions and distorted views others held that affected me. Now, I only care about the opinions of those I care about and who care about me. My medical health is no ones business but my own...You take care of yourself.

      There’s new treatment available for cmv and shingles but nothing yet for hsv. It’s like a slap in the face!

      Any ladies out there suffered with this? There seems to be little information about it on the net. Thanks in advance.

      Rejection will be there during your whole life. But not because of herpes, also because of how you are, at work, at your private life. It's just a part of life! Just have in mind that if people reject you because of stupid little things like herpes, they are not even worth continuing as a part of your life.  I think the best way of fighting the stigma is to be 100% convinced that there is NO NEED to feel ashamed, bad, disgusting because of herpes. I one day understood some very important thing: I did NOTHING differently than my friends who don't have herpes. I had sex (they did), sometimes with protection (they did), sometimes without (they did). I had ONS (they did), I had long term relationships (they did), I received wonderful and less wonderful oral sex, haha (they did). The only difference is that I got genital herpes from someone who didn't even know. So why exactly should I feel disgusting or bad?  And also: Know the facts. That is the safest way to destroy stigma in my opinion. If someone tells you: "Yuck! Herpes is disgusting!" you can answer: "I don't think that 80 % of the world population are disgusting because they have a virus in their bodies."  I also recommend this video from "Laureen". She has really great videos about herpes!

      Thanks for the comments. Looks like the only think that might have a shot at helping us in the future is the drug Pritlevir then.

      @PeaceNeeded no there is zero relationship between penile spines and HSV-2, no such variant is possible.
