Trying to make sense

Recommended Posts

Dazzlingeyes

I found out about a month ago that I have herpes. Devastation isn't nearly enough to describe the state I've been in. I've been crying every single day. I went to the doc for a regular annual and got a horrifying phone call a week later. They say stress can bring about outbreaks and I guess that's true because I never felt any affects of being infected until now..probably because of how crazy I've been over it. Lately I've been playing the blame game. First it was blaming the person who gave it to me and then finally blaming my situation on myself for being careless enough to let this happen. So right now I want to make sense of everything. I love my friends and family to death but I don't feel like I can't talk to them about this. And honestly, I'm too ashamed to. It feels soooo much better just being able to write this out and let it out.

Herpes has been hosting on humans for thousands of years. You didn't do anything wrong. No blame required.

      Who knows if I have had further testing since whatever post I made however long ago. Oh that's right, I know, and you don't, you ignorant fuck.

      I’m also in the same boat. The skin below my pelvic glands is red and rash-like or little red bumps show up for a day or two. Constant itching down there and on my scrotum. The entrance to my anus is itchy all day. Every doctor that has looked at it has seen nothing to be concerned about. Tingling on my lip, tingling in my left arm and hand, tingling in left foot. Tingling in my left thigh, full pain in head of penis. Girl I was seeing also has itchiness in her vag and the lip tingles. I get little cuts on my penis for no reason. Never been swabbed or taken theWestern Blot. So far, after 5 months since suspected contact, I’m IGG negative. this all happened soon after having sex multiple time with someone.

      This is coming very soon.  The chat we had was great but crashed the site each time.  We've researched lots of options and hopefully we are close. Thanks for your patience! Shenda

      Hi guys, I have been making myself crazy googling. So i decided to ask people who know. My 28 year old daughter just told me that she has hvs1 for the last 4 years. She had a swab test days after first outbreak, it came back positive. She was also having a psoriasis outbreak. 6 months in a blood test came back negative, 1 year in another blood test negative. My daughter also suffers with psoriasis and ibs with is linked to the psoriasis.  There is also genital psoriasis that looks like the herpes virus. So does she have it or not...I looked up so much on google but things are conflicting to say the least. I am hoping to get some insight here. Thank you all!!!
