dude, you came to the right place. I came here to find basic information, and found comfort. From reading all the posts, you will not be judged and we all understand. I'm new here also, only been a couple of days, but read through some of the posts and it might help. If you ever want to chat, send me a message. I'll listen :)

hey im new to this website too, and i as well have this god awful diease. i know what its like to be judged, i lost a few friends because when i told them that i had it they where all like "damn sorry to hear that, well if you ever need anyone to talk to you can all ways call me ill be there for you," but none of them were. it was basicly as if i didnt even exist, even though we all had grown up together. but like i was saying i know what its like, btw i also live in florida, im 21, and in case u were wondering yes im a girl.

I am newly diagnosed and new to this site as well... I was instantly afraid that I would be judged, mostly because there is such a negative stigma about herpes. Once I heard that 1 in 5 people have some form of it, I was a bit more relieved because that just shows that many other people are hiding it as well. It is not a fun thing to have though... that's for sure.

I just told yesterday I have gh. I agree with you its somewhat of a joke to my friends. However my best friends have been super supportive and this place is kind of the best thing I could have found. I'd love to find someone to talk to about it that is going through it as well, and I know I can find someone here :)

I think its safe to say we all know how you feel, nobody knows except my best friend and ex. And now that I'm getting out and meeting new people its really hard because its always in the back of your mind and when it does go away there is always that crude herpes joke somebody makes to bring the feeling back. Well i came back to this site to get somebody to talk to that really understands how I feel, so hit me up if you wanna chat. I also live in fl.

IT sucks but having supportive people helps alot

YEa this website hs been really helpful. I just recently found out i have it.. even though the doctor hasnt officially diagnosed it but I know it is. OMg and when i found out I didnt know how to tell my BF. I was so scared. I was like hun i have to tell you I got something that isnt curable.. and when i told him he was like oh thats it? HE thought i had cancer or HIV lol He was like well you arent going to die from it and we will just deal with it I still love you no matter what. So he has definetly helped me through this and is patient with me when i get an outbreak and get so upset.. My best friend reacted the same way when i told her.. she said that well just manage it and I dont think any different about you and you still my BFF so thankfully I have 2 great people in my life who help me through this... BUT the thing i HATE the most is 1. Cant eat chocolate now because it causes me breakouts =( and i LOVVVVVVVVVEEEE it! and 2. Can't have sex until a breakout is gone. 3. Im so scared to give it to my BF =( grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr But yea those are the only two people in the world... well besides you guys that know I have GH.. I would never tell my fam they would be so disappointed in me and my sis and mom would lecture me to death. =/

So hang in there guys if they dont accept it well then they werent good friends to begin with and you dont need them in your life anyways!

P.S. damn I talk alot geez

I've only told my sister and my closest friend...they've been supportive, saying it isn't all that bad, but of course that is easy for them to say when nothing is wrong with them, so no one understands what I'm going through. they think i just need to stop thinking about it and just go on with my life...a lot harder than they think... i

      Lol, a thousand guinea pigs.  I think you raise a good question (though it's a bit sad that a 1000 guinea pigs might have to die). But every every preclinical study I know, also uses a fairly small number of lab animals.  It's rarely more than a few dozen.  For example, the EDITAS proof of concept ocular herpes solution tested in 36 animals, of which some got placebo, and some got AAV with no editors.  So testing in only a handful of animals seems to be the norm.  So I wouldn't read into that caveat too much, if I were you.  But whether that vaccine can ever enter human trials, that I don't know.   Some things I've read seemed to suggest that ppl are kind of down on the idea of testing vaccines, on account of the failures.  I hope that's not the case.

      Yeah @Lukeherpwalker I agree. Many people just see the igg tests and listen to random internet strangers about their results being from a childhood infection and on their mouth.  The fact is I got genital herpes because someone didn’t want to believe their HSV1 was genital when it was. Blood tests never can tell you location. Fact. Let’s deal with facts instead of highly unsupported opinions in the name of a life long virus shall we?

      hi Imsu, No problem about the questions.  Sangamo is a research stage stem cell and gene editing company.  They currently are not researching HSV.  But they have a gene editing and stem cell stage 1/2 trials going on regarding HIV.  The gene editing solution they are using is zinc fingers. https://www.sangamo.com/pipeline/partnered-programs And no problem about your questions.  Feel free to also inbox me if you like and want to continue the conversation.  I'm not an expert, but I've done my research.  Cheers.

      I’m more than sure you got it from your current boyfriend. 5 days later and you have an outbreak in the anal where you did it for the first time. I had a vaginal outbreak 5 days after unprotected sex with my ex. I knew I was from him because of the negative tests I had during my outbreak. Unfortunately he was i denial about the situation and didn’t support me at all. Your boyfriend may not have been aware that he had it. And he may also lie about it if he finds out he actually does carry the virus. Hopefully he gets tested and things get sorted out for the both of you. 
    • Lukeherpwalker
      If you are having genital symptoms. . and test positive for hsv1 its very relevant. Op may indeed have ghsv1
