Cure Coming Soon

Well I visited Wikipedia today and saw they're asking for donations...

If everyone reading this donated $10,

we could end the fundraiser today.

Please read a personal appeal.

$690K raised -

Today's goal: $1 million!

$11.5M raised -

2011 goal: $29.5 million

I wonder why it's so hard to raise donations for HSV. I mean people are doing it for a fucking website but not for a disease. :madd:

What herpes needs is a face, a famous face that comes forward and unites everyone to work towards funding a cure not work towards asking the government to do it..

What likable famous person has herpes? I know Anne Heche has it from when she was a kid because of her father I believe :(

Do you think her story would compel people to donate?

THe only way I can think is to appeal to peoples' sense of pity. Show people saying that they got it from their first partner, or by being raped. Just trying to prove that not everybody that has it got it from sleeping around. OR, we can use the numbers to instill fear. For example, 1 in 4 adults women has herpes....what will the statistic be when your daughter becomes active?

they dont care.. thats not a good enough apppeal. pressing for mandatory testing and treatment on the grounds that people not knowing what they have contribute to it's spread provides the government with a justification and our community the oppurtunity to increase our numbers by incorperating the clueless and those who want to front til the last minute.

there are new people being born every day without it. somebody would rather wait for them to get the age of consent then bother with us. we gotta get those supposed 1 in 6 americans to wake up to this virua, and prey one of them is of prominence. if the president had it or some oil rich arab sheik or a kleptocrat and his O.B.s would not subside you had better believe he would fund research with every dime he has stolen from his state's treassury. If Buffett or Gates or Trump or even his kid had it we would be in business.. Even right now though the community is big enough if you would all get serious and if you also stayed in contact with the companies you chose to aid.

p.s. When people react to rape badly, atleast a sizeable majority of men its not for the reasons you believe. its a form of jealousy and a tamer variation of the male sense of entitlement. they see a rape vic like this, shes damaged good when before she was one of the greatest comodity in life. its like if a collecter had wanted a car that he had idolized from his younger day, the car had been discontinued, only about 6 were still known to be in existence, and the prize for one was 15g. If the car had been promissed to him and by some means between the date it was promissed and the date he went to receive it someone had tboned one side of the car or beat it up with a louisville and the car's price then came down to 300 bux the collecter probably wouldn't want it anymore. even with only five others in the world and this damaged car still able to run just fine, he wouldn't want it anymore.. he might even be able to take the dings out but he still wouldn't bother with that job.. he'd go for the other 1s even though they are impossible to get. thats how some men view rape victims and thats how more men would view one with herpes..

      Sort of unrelated, but I remember a few months ago finding new patents filed last year for the einstein college vaccine. I wondered if they were indicative of new developments with it, but I brushed it off as probably not.

      I have not had sexual contact for at least half a year with a partner of more than four years monogamous, one non-protected encounter four years ago different women and then a few more non-protected over ten years ago.   One morning, I woke up after a having bad night time sweats (common) with a bad itch in my pubic region hair on right side about halfway between my penis and belly button. I did not look closely to later that night and noticed a large red rash, but don't believe I looked that closely. At some point I noticed a blister or something and tried to pop it and then walked away, I think being in denial I didn't want to look that closely, so I cant describe symptoms. This was on a Saturday or Sunday. The following Monday I went to work, where I do a physical demanding job al week, I noticed the area that had the rash showed about four areas that were infected (either cut or blistered) and would burn at night time during the week, They were located on my right side, directly where my belt buckle rubs. During the days that work week, my belt buckle would drive and rub in the area ( my buckle is metal square with pointy but not sharpe edges), I tried to pull my pants up and get the belt off the area but that was not always possible. After work that week, I took the weekend and then next two days off of work, the shooting pain evidently stopped and the area after a another week or two looked to be healing.  Week before symptoms: I have been under stress at work and the previous two days before the rash / OB I was working on a boat with another person, we were sharing work equipment and peeing with out washing hands (could he have had it and spread it to me through sharing of phones, equipment if he peed and then touch my phone, then I peed (sorry if stupid question)? My belt could have also been digging into me also, I have been wearing this belt for over a year and never had a problem. Currently, I took a Herpes 1 and 2 test from stdcheck using quest and it came back negative. Symptoms Dec 2/3 test Jan 21, negative results Jan 23. The area in pubic region is still red and appears to be scared but no open sores.   I know it is crazy but with the those symptoms I am still worried. Was that too soon to get a test? Is there any chance of getting if from a co-worker if they have it and touched the same things you did? Would you recommend getting another blood test in 3 months? Thank you for your input.

      Doctors will tell you this, but it's incredibly irresponsible of them, and it's advice that needs to be ignored. You always need to disclose your status before having sex with someone.

      The general public is just really poorly educated when it comes to virology in my opinion. Part of it though is just the fact that there's only so much information a person can remember and care about at one time. However I've always felt like HPV is way more openly discussed than HSV, at least in women's spaces.
