Hey everyone.. Just looking for ppl my age perhaps from my area to chat with. I have a pretty positive outlook on HSV after only being diagnosed early this November with GHSV-1. Talking here has really helped. Just looking for male or female friends. :wavey:

There is a very good group in Toronto that meets once a month.

You will find it very helpful if you can make it, even for one visit.

I'm in hamilton too......29/f. I just found out late last week so this is all still pretty new to me but I'm glad my doctor gave me this website it has helped tremendously before I was feeling like a threeheaded creature and ppl would be able to tell as soon as they looked at me and that I was the only person this happened to but that's not the case at all its great to be able to talk to others who I know won't judge and know what I'm going thru because they have experienced or are experiencing it

Start a Hamilton support group!!!

Or come to the T.O. group if you are nervous about people in Hamilton finding out your status....

At the very least you should friend each other via this site...

Im sorry this has happened but you should know that it only gets better. Having hsv1 is the NORM. You will likely not have many (or if you are lucky zero) recurring outbreaks. Ghsv1 is actually less likely to be spread than ohsv1. Yes, it is unfortunate that this occured but use this positively. Use this as a wake up call to look after yourself, be healthy and be thankful for life.

      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.
