ONly to have my bf break up with me. I go out drinking the next day and guess who gets pulled over?!? Of course me! Worst week of my life...Im not happy. I can't date around here because I live in a small town...can't tell my family what I'm going through because they will never understand. God has it out for me....I'm 29 and I know the next person that asks me when I'm getting married I'm going to flip and tell them to fuck off! I don't care if I'm at work and get in trouble. It's an ignorant Fucking question.

Sorry to hear your bad luck. I guess the only place you have to from here is up.

Many people have told me that getting herpes changed their lives for the better. Most people reevaluate their lives start working out and are more selective in whom they date.

Come to the "Chat Room", there you will find many nice fellow Herpsters who can offer you their support.

Good luck!

JB

Hi look.. well I just had to reply and say that, probably, you'll never get to your"old self".. this stuff has a way of making u reevaluate urself... and like any sudden changes.. some are good and some are not.. in the way that if it wasn't broken, it didn't need to be fixed.. there is always a brighter side to everything.. some days u'll see it.. hang in there...

Honest? <<how to communicate this without sounding like a jerk...>> Your post actually got me feeling a little better because I was where you are now. While I didn't get pulled over for DUI, I did get fired and got dumped by a guy I really liked at the same time I found out I tested positive for GHSV-2. It was the worst time in my life. I'm glad I didn't own a gun because I probably would have eaten it that week. That was this past April. I want to tell you that it does get better. Sure I got rejected 9 times out of 10. But that 10th person knows me, stands by me and cares for me. Don't give up hope - your handle says it all - you'll find it.

      Having HSV-2 has not bothered me at all for casual sex. I'm just avoiding sex during outbreaks, on suppressive therapy and using condoms every time with casual partners. Since my outbreaks appear on top of my penis, even during an outbreak the risk is minimal if I put a condom on as soon as I take my underwear off.  I guess it might be a slightly different case for a girl as if you have external lesions around your groin you could still infect someone even using a condom. And of course, condoms can break, which has happened to me over 10 times and caused myself to get infected in the first place.  I see it as a much more difficult now having a serious relationship, because I can't feel much with a condom on and really want stop using them. However, I don't want to put my new girlfriend to any risk - I would feel terrible if I infected her.

      Does anyone have experience about people's reactions to Herpes in Asia? Personally I live in Thailand where I also caught the virus as a condom broke 4 years ago.  Unfortunately I infected my ex-girlfriend with HSV-2. This was just after I had caught the virus myself and we had sex before I noticed and realised what it was. In the beginning, a local doctor told me I have just hurt my foreskin with my jeans' zipper and the tests came as negative. After getting tested later it came as positive.  Anyways, my ex-gf (well educated, professional, 26 years old then) she had no idea what Herpes was in the first place. She didn't really care too much about it and didn't bother to get tested. During our 3 year relationship we kept having unprotected sex as usual and she never had any issues until at the end one day. She had a very minor outbreak once and nothing after that (lucky her, no like myself who gets terrible symptoms non-stop). I know she has a strong immune system, because she was never sick despite myself having bad colds quite often. In any case, she could not care less about this virus and didn't mind at all.

      I've seen a lot of hysteria surrounding Herpes in Europe and the US. What has been your experience in South-East Asian countries like Thailand? Do people perceive HSV-2 as a worrying disease?

      The full article is behind a paywall but you could write the the authors and request a copy.

      The jury is still out as there needs to be additional experiments. Editas' results make me believe dosing was insufficient among other issues.
