HELP!!! It's my baby.


Recommended Posts

Well I just want to say how happy I have finally found this site. I have been lost for 5 months now. I need some help, well not me, my 6 months old baby boy ETHAN. Ethan was born on 3-2-06 he weighed 3'8" and only 16 inches long. But he was a big boy to be born 2 1/2 months early. Well when he was born he was fine. Perfect baby boy, when he was almost a month old he got sick come to find out it was spinal meningitis due to herpes. This is strange because neither me nor my husband has had any signs at all, no sores, no nothing. I was told I gave it to him and that he was probraly not going to make it. what alot to deal with in one day. well as you can see he did. he now weighs 16 lbs, but here is what is wrong. My son has brain damage in over 80% of his brian, and he can not see. The doctors can't tell me nothing else of this situation. I have also tried very hard to find any other parent that has a child like this i can talk to. I need someone to talk to. I have found a site that says that only about 2500 babies a year is born with herpes. but i feel so alone. please someone reply. i need some support. it is so hard not having anyone to talk to. and i am so sorry if this is a little jumbled together, when i get upset i bable.

Im sorry

Im new to this site and to this disease....

I gave birth in May to my first child.

I am so sorry. I dont know what else to say right now.

I know that you need someone to say something, anything.

And I saw that no one replied to your post. I want to say something that will lift the weight off your shoulders or aleast give you an answer....

But I dont think anyone could do that, and I am so sorry for that.

I dont know why the things that happen to us happen to us and everyone has a different approach to the way they live their lives and get through things. I was told once that God never gives you anything he knows you cant handle....

I hope that you can find some answers somewhere...

If you just need to talk I am here.

I know there was another mother on this board who has two children born with herpes simplex 1. I hope she sees this message and posts to you, perhaps she can be of greater help to you. But know that we are ALL here for you and that you and you beautiful boy is in our prayers. I saw his picture and he is a handsome lad! What lovely hair! Gorgeous!

I have two sons, so your story has affected me deeply. (as I am sure all mothers on this board are affected by your post.) We are all here for you. :D

      I had an IGG test  and the ranges were out of range and high  HSV 1 was 42 and HSV 2 was 19 so I guess it was accurate but the problem now is I can't figure out when or who I got it from. In 2018 to 2019 when I was with my ex I was STD tested but not sure if herpes was included but my ex was supposed to get tested but refused. I experienced some trauma with him and didn't date until a year and a half later so I'm confused. The guy I dated after the ex who didn't want to be tested I told them a week ago about my results he was trying to be there for me and understanding,I told him to get tested but to request a herpes blood test , because he had no noticeable lesions or bumps ever is what he said and I never noticed any on him now he has shut down all his social media and I can't reach him. Hoping he's okay, I feel bad because in 2018 I did have what I was told it was an abrasion that tingled but at my doctor the day I was tested they told me it wasn't herpes but I think it was only a visible diagnosis. I keep having it reoccur from time to time

      Hello "FeelingLost".... your fears and concerns are understandable but, nothing you've described regarding the sexual encounter would cause you to contract herpes.... further, your symptoms are not herpes related.  Best of all, your doctor is correct, your results don't show any herpes here.  You can relax.... definitely have your GP take a look at things and see what might be causing the symptoms but, again, none of them are typical herpes related.  I wish you the best in terms of talking to your wife about this encounter.... hopefully she will understand and you both can work through this amicably.  We all make mistakes.... be careful not to beat yourself up too hard over this.... you can become so racked with guilt that you start imagining physical symptoms.  Best of luck.... and take care..... come back to the site if you have questions.

      Hi (I’m really scared and feel really disappointed in myself and worried about my future), I had oral sex with a condom almost 3 weeks ago and a massage parlor. I also received a hand job at the same time prior to putting a condom on, also may have rubbed my penis on her back a little. Did not touch her genitals I don’t recall any sores on her back. After the event she handed me a pice of TP and after I took off the condom I wiped my penis head to clear away the excess ejaculation…this is where I suspect I got infected, she had just gone pee and wiped and maybe touched a sore or something and then I got it on my penis from the tp? Idk. I’m just flailing.   After this I’ve had discomfort on the skin below the head of my penis and 4 bumps for 2 weeks now, the bumps don’t seem to have changed in size. I also had frequent urination for about a week and have had dull pain in my groin on and off. I also have some pins and needles on the sides of my abdomen/trunk that get worse when I go out in the heat or get dehydrated. I’ve had a lot of trouble sleeping, likely due to guilt and shame and worry about the future.   so I got one test done at 10 days from the event (idk know if this can tell me anything… the doctor assured me it was 100% correct and I don’t have herpes. I was not physically examined). I got a full panel std. neg for everything. HSV-1 results: IgG 0.3 / HSV-2 IgG 0.9 hsv-1 IgM = 2.2 hsv-2 IgM = 3.0 (Reference V. Negative: Less than 9.0 Borderline: 9.0 to 11.0 Positive: Greater than 11.0) I have an appointment with my GP on Thursday, hoping he can help. Will likely go to a std testing service tomorrow to see if I can get in an antiviral proactively. Plan to get tested again this week.
