is my social life over?


Recommended Posts

I am a high profile singer. I recently contracted HSV2, someone had it and didn't tell or didn't know, either way I'm not bitter I'm responsible for me right. My question is, I can't tell people that I have this it could ruin my career, am I just doomed to be alone?

Please lend an opinion!

no not doomed!!!

No, you are not doomed to be alone...I think you woudl be pretty shocked it you knew how many people who are famous have this disease.

(anne heche admitted in her autobiography that she has had it since childhood. I personally know of a few others...rockstars...who have it.) :wink:

So you are not alone. But, I can understand too how you want to keep this on the DL. Because the press will ostrasize you and cast your name out with HERPES POSITIVE SO AND SO WITH HER DATE ....and you don't need that type of shit.

If you DO date, just takes things nice and slow. Really get to know the person before becoming intimate. You do not have to tell every one you date that you have it, only people you plan on being intimate with.

While you have a right to privacy THEY have the right to decide whether or not they want to be intimate with you despite having HSV2. But I think in time, you will meet someone who will love you and care for you despite this annoying crud. My man does NOT have this (thank god!) and he was there for me from the GET GO. You will just have to feel out each person you date, and over time you can tell who is going to treat you well (as you SHOULDbe treated, regardless of having HSV)

I wish you luck in love and in your career. You can always come here and vent if need be. I know I do. Try to eat healthy too and take vitamins. Good luck!

Social life

Thanks for the words Ouch. It is still hard to know if I will ever be able to trust someone enough to tell them about my condition.

Why?? I would love to have that outlet to educate people... the more shame you feel in having herpes... the longer the stigma remains... educate people... be proud of who you are.... and help others to not feel alone...

      Hi guys, My name is Shelly. I'm 25 years old! I've had Herpes for 5 going on 6 years now. I'm just here hoping to learn more ways to deal with the situation and meet new people who actually know what I'm going through!  Thank you for reading! 💕

      Hey @Zrozpaczona9 that looks like folliculitis to me, that’s independent of the question of herpes. The doctor is wrong in the sense that a negative IgG test is beyond reasonable doubt that you do not have herpes. It is a small percentage of people for which a false negative occurs. The doctor is right to take a swab to increase your confidence that there’s no herpes present. I’m sure you’ll have your result soon.

      Hey @WilsoInAus miałam dzisiaj wizytę u dermatologa, gdyż dostałam zmian w pachwinie, w trakcie wakacji nad morzem. Udałam sie tam ze zmianami w postaci strupów. Powiedział ze nie można wykluczyć opryszczki mimo negatywnego wyniku Hsv igg i zalecił wymaz z pochwy na Hsv i inne choroby. Wytłumaczyłam mu że zmiany zamieniają się w strup, ale nie ma w nich płynu, więc zalecił badanie śluzu pochwy na hsv PCR, zastanawiam się czy ma to sens, i czy wirusa można wykryć na podstawie tego badania w wydzielin z szyjki macicy. Z góry dziekuje za pomoc

      In this forum we will discuss does lume work Lume is paraben-free and uses several natural ingredients like Aloe barbadensis leaf juice, tapioca starch, and Maranta arundinacea root powder (also known as arrowroot powder) to control odor and sweat. One of the key Lume deodorant ingredients is mandelic acid, an AHA found in skin care products, which also has an antibacterial effect.

      Ibuprofen medicine is a painkiller. Can you take ibuprofen on an empty stomach  Some people take medicine empty stomach which is not good for our health. Because painkiller kind of medicine is very strong and can harm your liver. Medicine makes many strong ingredients. like Lactose, corn starch, hypromellose, sodium starch glycolate, colloidal anhydrous silica, magnesium stearate, sucrose, talc, titanium dioxide (E171), and carnauba wax.
