26/m TN

Recommended Posts

CourageousInDarkness

Hey whats goin on. 26/m from TN, just diagnosed about a week ago. My spirits are high and my faith is strong, but physically I am in pain. Seems to be getting better the farther into my medicine regimen I get. Anyone else in the Nashville area? It's comforting knowing there are so many others out there dealing with the same issues.

There are many people from the middle TN area who come here. Stick around and you may meet a few.

Come to the "Chat Room" and you will meet many nice fellow Herpsters who can offer you their support.

Good luck!

JB

Good ol East TN. Worked for about 2 months back in the summer in Crab Orchard up on the plateau. Not too far east, but definately east of Nashville. Where in east TN are you?

completelynotsure

I am from Nashville. 29/M. I am not completely sure if I have it or not.. my possible exposure to it was about 5 months ago - I took a blood test a few weeks ago, and it came back negative for both HSV1 and HSV2. However, I believe I might be going through a OB right now. I have a appointment tomorrow morning to have the doctor look at it AND get a Western Blot blood test to have it confirmed for sure or not.

I am am pretty bummed about this whole thing... I can't imagine bringing this up to someone I am interested in dating/marrying. I also am a virgin (have been waiting for marriage- which has been a hard enough feat to do..) so it has been quite a bit for me to handle, knowing that this really puts a damper on things.

At this point I am trying to stay positive. Which has really been kinda hard...

Corageous - It is awesome that you are so positive! It does get better, I only had one OB - I thought it was so painful even though it was just one bump. I just let it ride out, and I haven't had a breakout since - its been a year:)
