Had the talk and it went well

Recommended Posts

I'll be honest, I've never been subtle or discreet. In fact I'm a bull in a china shop when it comes to delicate situations. Strangely though, things seemed to come together in such a way that telling my friend, who looks like may soon be more than a friend, that I have herpes was almost natural. He was joking about his bedroom issues and I laughed at him and told him "at least your man bits look normal 365." Which led to him asking which led to my answer and him doing the equivalent of shrugging it off like no big deal and telling me I'm still attractive. Long story short, attraction was expressed on both parts. Good news is that he lives out of town but is now coming down to see me next weekend.

I did tell him that he should look more into the h a little more before just shrugging it off though. I have had extremely mild problems with it, but he could be completely different should all protective methods fail. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

I do think him already being a friend and someone I trust helped a lot though.

Any suggestions on how to keep him negative besides the obvious: protection, no sex during an outbreak, etc?

Go to your doctor and ask him to prescribe you valtrex. There is plenty if information about valtrex on the web :) good luck! And you ARE worth it.

Thanks for the advice guys, I'll look into it before his next visit!

Things seems to be working out. It's been a long time since I've smiled just thinking about a boy. I'm exhausted when he's gone from all the late night phone calls. :)

      No it’s not a fact at all. How can it be a correlation if it happens no more than chance? Remember 70-80% of people using PW have herpes.

      Hello! Thanks so much for your reply. I was told (and believe) I have HSV 2. They told me that on the phone; it was confirmed through swab. I have never taken a blood test or been tested for it otherwise. I've read mixed reviews about HSV1 providing protection-- because some studies seem to allude that it does. If this is true- it makes sense because I never had chicken pox or HSV1 in my entire life so I think it explains why I caught HSV2 from a one night experience (just my luck and just my own theory) Although I still experience twitching in my body -- I feel happy that the valtrex every other day suppresses it. But I do wonder, because I'm experiencing such reduced symptoms; if my shedding is reduced too. I doubt it but just a thought.  Anyways - I can live with condoms but I don't want to.. so I'm hoping for some guidance

      This is no great surprise that HSV is pushed back in ExcisionBio's pipeline.  I'd be surprised if it isn't pushed back again. The chart they put out is painfully uninformative.  Sloppy.  And that's a red flag in and of itself. My guess is that those arrows are progress rather than efficiency, but it's not completely clear.  But if a scientific company can't get this chart right, then I really wonder what other mistakes they are making. I don't have a ton of confidence in this.  But we'll see.  I'm glad that it seems they are trying to do something.  I think CRISPR could be a solution to HSV (some kind of solution).  But I question whether it will be ExcisionBio that makes it in the end.

      Good to know.  I don't think this is a listed company, but from what I've read, they've gotten decent funding.  Around $70 million.  Most of that probably won't go to HSV research, but it's good they have some money. By comparison, ExcisionBio has raised $10 million.

      The fact that Admedus is farming this out, kind of tells you it's a long shot at best.  It's good that it hasn't been abandoned.  But I'm doubtful much will come of this.  But maybe new knowledge about what doesn't work will come, and that's always helpful.
