Why being in a relationship is like the Wizard of Oz.

You will often get caught in an (emotional) tornado, like Dorothy's House.

Things will often (seemingly) fall out of the sky on you, like the house on the Witch of the East.

You will find yourself on a golden path for a while, like the Yellow Brick Road, where everything seems bright and shiny.

There will be people telling you what what path they think you need to follow, like the Munchkins, or Glinda,with your best interests at heart.

You will find unexpected treasures like the ruby slippers.

There will occasionally be people who try to take those treasures away from you, Like the Wicked Witch of the West.

There will be obstacles in your path, like the flying monkeys.

Sometimes you will just want to lie down and not think, like in the poppy fields.

Life will throw things at you, like the apple trees.

There will be times when you need friends to support you like Dorothy has Toto and her entourage.

Sometimes you'll need your family, like Dorothy.

Sometimes things will be not what they seem, like the Wizard.

And most important:

You have to be adventurous, like Dorothy.

You need to have brains, like the Scarecrow.

You need to have heart, like the Tin Man.

You need to have courage, like the Cowardly Lion.

You will discover that some of what you thought you were looking for or needed you had all the time, if you look within, like the companions do with the Wizard.

Well thanks! I wanted to make it a little cynical too, but had my reasons not to...Thanks, I haven't gotten flowers in AGES!

      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.
