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:

29.5...? For a website...? What the fxxk for! Herpes needs a sponsor.

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..

      @cas9 actually I think it’s you who doesn’t understand proof, proof by nature is subjective, so what is proof to me might not be proof to you... I have seen many cases where people have nothing to gain sharing their stories about herpes, and healing themselves, now if you continually search for this you’ll find it in comment threads or perhaps blogs.... perhaps they are lying? Well...Maybe some, but to think everyone who has claimed to heal themselves of herpes is a liar is simply a belief...  if you wanna believe that, go ahead, but after careful  analysis of many stories and researching the virus myself I am convinced the body can rid itself of herpes, what comes in, can come out, it just takes time and effort... But I like to keep it simple, God can heal anything so at this point you guys are just speaking nonsense

      So my 20 year old daughter and I just found out she has genital herpes.  She is away at college and dealing with it on her own.  I am trying to be as supportive as I can by reading everything I can find from reputable sites.  She is staying busy this week with as she is involved with her schools freshman orientation for the new class coming in.  She was told by an urgent care doctor that she had it Visually, they did a blood test and called her to confirm it is herpes.  I told her to ask what type and she was told they don’t really type anymore because there is to much gray area but that it is a new infection. From what I have read that seems odd and she should find out what type.  I told her to inform anyone she may have had sex with in the last 6 months, she said she told the guy and he was an ass about it which of course makes the emotional side worse.  She is emotionally a wreck about it and I am trying to help her understand it’s not the end of the world.  Of course being 20 she feels she will not have the chance to meet anyone who would want to date her now. Any advice would be great....she is still in the middle of her first outbreak but I think the antiviral has been helping since she went to the doc as soon as she thought something wasn’t right.  I just want to help her as best I can!

      Sorry for the long post. Just giving some backstory..... Hello. I'm new to this site. I was told I had HSV2 about 5 years ago. I had no clue because I never had any symptoms. I was just getting some blood work done while pregnant after switching to a new ob/gyn and this was discovered. Pregnancy was ended for personal reasons. Still afterwards never had any outbreaks or symptoms or anything. Fast forward to June I started feeling irritated down there. I was dealing with a lot of stress at this time. I ended up taking a pic of what it looked like down there so I could see what was going on. I only saw 1 spot. In the pic you will see the spot on top. It always just looked like a crater or something. It never blistered up or popped or crusted up. I knew I had the virus so I started researching outbreaks and pics and things. I wasnt sure if this was an out break or not because most of what I was dealing with didnt match up. I never felt sick. It didn't hurt to sit or wear panties. I didnt have any tingling or itching or burning sensation. I just felt irritated. I know every case is different though. So then I researched some home remedies and I ended up buying lysine 1000 mg to take and also used tea tree oil and acv diluted w/ water. Once I started messing with it, it started burning when urine got on the spot. And I think I didn't dilute the acv enough. I took 2 lysine pills a day until I wasnt feeling anything down there. So after a few days this healed up and everything was fine again but the spot never really went away. Things have been settled down and no stress since then. All of a sudden yesterday morning I started feeling that same irritation again. This morning I felt around down there and felt nothing so I took a pic again and the thing on bottom is what I found. I put some acv and  tea tree oil on it again.  And same as last time...ever since I touched it, it's been hurting just a tad and it looks exactly the same. I'm not sure if this is a outbreak or not but I'm pretty sure it is. I'm just not experiencing most of the symptoms I read about. Can someone give me their opinion please? Thank you.
