Distraught

Recommended Posts

autumndirks

I was diagnosed with Herpes S1 around christmas time. It caused a great tension between my boyfriend and I as ended. He believed that I was blaming him for catching the virus.This ultimatley led to our break up. He claims till this day he didnt pass the virus to me and that hes been tested. I havent broke out since my first episode which has kept me strong. I have begun taking pictures. I am trying to create a portfolio for a modeling agency. My photographer who talks to a close friend of mine commented on my herpes saying that "I was beautiful but he would never be involved with me due to my herpes." He also said it would be extremly hard for me to find someone to be with long term due to my virus. I try to remain confident and block it out. But it still scares me.

Jeez. The photographer guy is an idiot. The photographer guy is an idiot. The photographer guy is an idiot. It would be extremely hard for him to find someone real, and caring, because he is an idiot.

This virus is extremely common and over seventy percent of the population carries the virus. Most do not know that they have it.

I totally agree with mrhonest. Wow, excuse the language, but, what a complete asshole! While it's true that there will be a number of people that won't know how to respond to it, it also weeds out a lot of people that likely won't be worth your time. The true love of your life will love you for who YOU are! And you aren't the virus. Oy! And again, like what mrhonest said, sooooo many people have it! I'm in a situation myself, (just joined site yesterday, screen name is BellGG if you want to look - post is, Passed it on, didn't know I had it.. or something like that) and the people are ARE amazing. In just the day I've been on the site, I've already received much support and knowledge. Plus, last night I went out with a friend to share my situation, and unbeknownst to me, she shared that SHE has herpes. It made me wonder how many people I know have it! Probably a lot more than I ever thought of. And that's the thing, I don't think of it!!

Much peace, tranquility, and blesssings to you. I don't doubt that you're a beautiful person both inside and out. If the photographer guy wouldn't go out with you because of the herpes (not like you want to), or anyone else for that fact, consider it a blessing!

      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.
