Just found out

Recommended Posts

WIGIRL10

So I just found out yesterday that I have HSV2, I was very devistated because I have been dating the same guy for the past 8 months. He does live in a different state and just recently came home. I don't want to assume that he cheated on me and got this from someone else and passed it on to me, but it is deffinitley crossing my mind. I am in my last couple weeks of schooling so I have been super stressed out and then finding this news out just put even more on me. I don't know how to approach my bf about this because I dont want him to think I am putting this all on him, but I don't know where else to turn. I have been in so much pain the last couple of days and nothing i do helps it, plus i had to pay $65 for valtrex which is rediculous! I just want this all to go away and wish it was all a dream! Help!

hey sry to hear that. I think you need to talk to your bf so he could get tested. The funny thing about hsv2 is that you can have it for a long time and never no. I say this in just learning that I have it and never had symptoms. I know its gonna be hard to tell him. Hopefully your relationship is strong enough and you get passed it. I wish you the best.

Try not to make assumptions. Your boyfriend should be tested though. The man who gave me herpes honestly didn't know he had it. He had symptoms but they were so minor, he ignored them. He only found out they were herpes symptoms when i got sick (really sick). He'd had it for at least 2 years (possibly longer).

It is very stressful and painful. I'm sorry you are going through this. It's horrible (and expensive) but there are many of us who have been through the same. I found reading buddhist stuff helped...do whatever you can to find perspective.

well thats the hard part honestly. idk I guess you have to think about the guy your with. Do you think he's the type that would do this knowingly? Another thing you can go off is his reaction. See how he deals with the situation.

I just went through the exact same thing. Identical. His symptoms were so minor he didn't think a thing of it until I had my first OB. We are getting married so I guess it isn't the end of the world for me, but there are days when it feels like it.

I completely agree. A roller coaster ride for sure, but I think the key is to try and not be so hard on yourself and look at this as an opportunity to get healthier and stronger. What doesn't kill you will only make you stronger. Take care of yourself.

A very unfun roller coaster ride filled with pain! I agree with your kelly clarkson quote :)

      Really wasn't sure which topic to put this in! I'm guessing a lot of you will have seen the recent news that Mel B was rushed to hospital thinking she was blind from her eye herpes.  I know she's not as famous as she used to be, but I really don't understand why celebrities with a big presence aren't doing anything about this, such as fundraising for a cure or even just talking about it to raise awareness. Correct me if I'm wrong but I don't think she's ever spoken about it before!  She clearly suffers from some bad symptoms. Thinking that you've gone blind must have been one of the most terrifying experiences, and to me, after that ordeal I would try and do everything in my power to raise awareness and find a cure.  Maybe she just doesn't know about all the vaccination research that's currently happening, and how many of these places need the extra funding to keep going?  Not sure where I'm going with this 😂 But does anyone think it's worth getting in contact with her about raising some awareness?

      Hey @Alda whatever is going on for your arm you can rest assured it is not at all likely to be herpes. Could the blister type things be from the massage causing irritation, perhaps even contact dermatitis? If you aren't seeing improvement soon consider seeing the doctor but it doesn't strike me as anything of much concern.

      I need help; i went and got a massage and 2 days later my upper arm feels super sore and is red with 3 blister type things, each about a small pea size the place I got a massage at was  not very sanitary , it was hot in there and the masseuse was sweating I think (i do have the down south H but haven’t had a breakout in about a year and I still don’t.) my arm does not itch just super sore. I wonder what is on my arm. any ideas?

      It did! There are combinations you can take that will not give you this effect, I just didn't want to do medication anymore. What I am doing https://www.amazon.com/MakingCosmetics-BHT-4-4oz-125g/dp/B01DE780OS read Steve Fowkes free book BHT1/8 t in coconut liquid MCT chain oil. Extremely hard to dissolve. I leave it for a day, must read Steve Fowkes free book online, overdose gets people dizzy! More is not better! Oils will also not get Rancid if you put some in your cooking oils! whole food vitamin, glutamine 3x one gram, suggested by case9 love it DHEA,25mg, most people who breakout have low levels lugols iodine worked way to four drops. Fulvic acid minerals. Thyriod granular meds   When I used to have obs I used monolaurin and st.John s wort. I used diaper rash cream for obs I also still spray genitals with zinc sulfate mixed with water. I learned it kills any virus plus summer sweat won't smell at all!  There is one thing I will not be without and that's BHT and zinc sulfate
