New to the board; Three year sufferer

Recommended Posts



I'll start with this: I am not very impressed how the forum logs you out... I practically wrote a novel for everyone and pressed 'submit new thread' to learn that I had been logged out. The forum really needs to look into a draft section, and if there is one, can someone tell me how to use it?

Since I am impatient after writing for over an hour, I am going explain in point form.

My situation

+ I was infected three years ago

+ Have never had blood test or swab, however, me and my GP have came to the conclusion that we know what it is.

+ Have been prescribe Valtrex once.

+ Used to be promiscuous, rebellious and experimented with drugs and alcohol.

+ Started out with one genital wart.

+ Progressively symptoms worsened... I used to be depressed and didn't care about my life at one time... After showering, I used to use one towel and wiped my whole body... Spreading to my chest, face, arms and hands...

+ I want to join the board for insight and to deal with people who share what I have.

+ I drink occasionally, work out and generally fatigue my body often... I am looking for remedies and ways of dealing with outbreaks because they affect me quite often... Especially since I've been healthier.

+ My last breakout was a week or two ago on my face... It happened during a weeks vacation... I hate how the virus flares up at certain times, so unpredictable.

I had much more detail in my first thread that wasn't posted.

We're all in this together... Right?

I have had that experience also, here and on other sites & blogs. My suggestion would be to compose your document in WORD, save, and then copy & paste to compose on this site. That way if it deletes your document you will be able to retrieve it.

I do empathize because I have written very detailed responses to others, and when they disappeared I figured it was not meant to be.

Anyway, please let me know how I can help.

      Any advice on on how i can change the way she thinks of her insecurities in the event I ever see her again or hang out with her or do you guys think that it's better too just walk away. The truth is though i never met another girl like her before and she was fine with me having herpes i could tell by the she reacted too it . How do you change the way someone views them self that has low self esteem.

      Note @Asr624 that an IgM result does not confirm a herpes diagnosis. Was the rash swabbed as well?

      Yes it's entirely possible that he didn't know and just now gave it to you. I've been with my husband almost 19 years and he was recently tested and is still negative. It's still possible of course that I could give it to him at any point. Sounds like you have a strong marriage and there is no reason this needs to be an issue other than a minor annoyance. I have 2 healthy children and have had no related medical issues due to HSV.

      I have been with him and didn’t tell him and now I can’t tell him because I know it would ruin any chance of reconciliation. I don’t want to live with this and I don’t want to live without him

      I am so sorry that happened to you. No one deserves that. Praying for you.
