Well I have been dating this guy for a year and a half. I have never cheated on him, always been good. So, I find out overall that he has cheated on me with oh um lets say a good 5 people. Most of them strippers. Anyway here I am with herpes a few months later. Hey ain't life grand! :twisted:

whats worse?

I ask the question because:

it is emotionally catastrophic to be cheated on

it is also (same) to have someone play with your emotional and physical health. we can control the physical, we cannot always control the emotional. We must learn to be strong, and learn about the virus which is oh so important. Now that you know you have it, you should feel powerful, not powerless. No one has the right to take that away from you.

almost grateful

Even an STD can be a blessing in disguise. When I was younger I contracted herpes. I dont remember how, kissing a guy with a coldsore I guess. I had a cold sore when I was 11 and never heard from the virus again. Untill just this past month when the corners of my mouth on both sides were really chapped and itchy, then I had a cluster of blisters form around the bottom of my mouth. I knew immeadiatly what it was, but i was concerned as to what was causing the outbreak. Stress? No, I'm making money, and not working much, things are going great, im lessed stressed then i've been in a long time. Menstrual cycle? no. Sunlight? nope. Fatigue? nope. what it came down to is that my immune system must be weaker then normal for some reason. Not just mine, but my husbands as well. See he has had flu like symptoms on and off for the last 4 months, and mine have been present, but not as bad as his.

Then while I was away at work, the heat vent in the bathroom fell halfway out of the ceiling. Well darn, im gonna have to get matinence fix that. But in the four or five days that the vent was down my cold symptoms got worse, my blisters got worse, my husbands cold symptoms got worse.

Things started clicking in my head and upon further inspection I found toxic black mold growing in the ceiling material betweeen the metal duct in my bathroom. BINGO-apparently high concentrations of mold can cause immune suppression, which would be the cause of my outbreak.

But if I hadnt been having such an abnormal outbreak I would have fixed the vent, bought some tylenol, and told my husband to suck it up. Extended exposure to mold can cause central nervous dysfunction....And as messed up as it sounds, there is a reason for everything, and im grateful to have had the outbreak as a warning sign of other problems.

Herpes is not the end of the world, and can actually be an outward sign of what your body is dealing with on the inside.

hey got it too,

i know you're probably really upset but i want you to know that the fact that you didn't sleep around makes this not your fault, but his, so i suggest you bestrong, move on and remember that you didn't ask for this, and find someone you can trust, hard as that is because they have to want to be trustworthy, but don't give up, bye

Not sexually active-Just plain Unlucky

I started with a chest cold, and then joint infections due to my inability to fight infections because of Lupus, Scleroderma & Crohns. I was put on antibiotics & massive doses of steroids which lowered my resistance further. Then I got a bacterial infection you know where. The Doctors tested me for every STD known, and every blood test and culture came back negative. Two months later, after seeing many specialists, one of the blood tests came back positive for Herpes. I am not sexually active, and there were no antibodies detected. I was told this was a first time exposure due to the lack of antibodies which begin to form in about a week. The Doctor told me that I probably was unlucky enough to receive this gift by the improbable but not impossible event of someone's infected shedded skin coming into contact with me during an appointment.

Talk about Dumb Luck. With my medical history, it's a bad case. In the last three months, I have been hospitalized twice with no sign of remission from the infection or the Herpes.

      Hi @Anxious 1234 Did you get diagnosis for this?

      Hi @WhatDidIDo2023, hopefully all is well with you and your significant other and are still together.   Did she develop any other symptoms after you mentioned her getting itchiness? Was it determined what you had was contagious? Most likely developed a fungal disease and caused her a yeast or uti

      Well thank you I appreciate it

      Hi @Luna 01 I really feel it is worthwhile obtaining a proper Herpeselect test given the outcomes of the home panel test. Regardless, your current symptoms are almost certainly not related to herpes. Hopefully, your doctor can assist in resolving these.
