Still Kinda Freaking Out


Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

I just went to the doctor today because I was having some discomfort. I never would have guess she'd tell me it may be herpes. She wasn't completely sure, so I have to wait for the test results.

Since then I've been kinda freaking out. Having all the feelings I'm sure everyone else has.

  • feeling dirty
  • angry
  • why me
  • no one's ever gonna want to have sex with me again
  • how do I tell my family
  • ashamed

And many many more.

I'm hoping posting and reading here will help me out.

It might not be herpes. In the meantime, reseach it thoroughly so you know what to think when the results come in.

Why does your family need to know? Do they want to know? Some things in life I don't want to know, like what's happening between Paris Hilton's legs and if my brother gave her herpes.

God gave me a cheap cure for herpes

Don't despair dear one, just in case you have contracted "it"... God has a cure for everything. For years I was devastated because of having received this horrendous infection. I studied it extensively and prayed fervently. After praying for 25 years, I was rewarded with this knowledge: take a Tagamet (cimetidine...I did not use generics so cannot vouch for generic) pill, available over the counter for $10.00 or less at any pharmacy. Wet it with a light oil like jojoba, then insert it as a suppository into your anus. Keep that area very clean. Do this in the a.m. and the p.m. start skipping days as you become free of symptoms, tapering off, and resume as needed until you feel the virus leave your body. Pay attention and you will notice even the nerve memory leaves (took me two months) I had no side effects anally, (however, I could not tolerate taking the pill orally)

Also red marine sea algae- gigartina (open capsule)mix in a paste with zinc gluconate 50 mg, vitamin e oil, jojoba oil/drop lavender oil , St. John's Wort applied to sores helped, but Tagamet is what really does the j-o-b.

I give thanks and praise every day that God would bless someone as humbly born as my self with knowledge of a cure for this disease which is created by mankind's pervasion of the Divine Feminine, sex without love. T

The price I paid for this knowledge: when I met my soulmate, he was already ill (but not apparent initially from his outer appearance) Because he was ill the entire three years I knew him we could not consummate our love. He passed from this plane on March 31, 2007. This is my gift to you and to the world as I promised God I would share freely what was given freely to me.

If you try this and get the same results that I did, say a pray in thanksgiving to God for the repose of the soul of my dear friend....Howard.

Peace Out

Thanks for all your kind words. It's just the waiting that is killing me. I think I'm gonna go crazy with waiting.

I don't want to say anything to the guy I slept with until I know (we are not in a committed realtionship), but we do talk and I don't want to avoid him.

It's just going to be a tough week until I know for sure.

Did they take a culture (swab) test, or a blood test? HSV can take up to 12 weeks after exposure to show up in a blood test. A positive result means you have HSV but a negative result can be a false negative because your antibodoes haven't had a chance to build up yet.

I know how hard the waiting is - I have to wait another 8 weeks to get tested.

Good luck to you.

She did the swab test and thinks the results should be back by Friday. So, only a week to wait. But it will be a long one.

Thanks for all the support!

      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.

      May 13 ( day I will never forget).. a guy I was dating and I drank way to much and decided to have anal sex. We did use protection however, not enough lube, wasn’t done correctly and it was painful. So bad that I yelled out and fell off the bed. Anyway, oral was also performed on me anal and vaginal. Flash forward to 3-4 days after that. I was in the most intense pain I had ever felt. I went to a gyn she tool one look and said it looks like herpes. She swabbed me . 2 days after that, yes it’s HSV1 . I was still in pain, irritated anal area and vaginal area and It was unbearable.  today, I still have irritation and itchy and when I pass a bowel i’m in pain and the itch is crazy.     When I first was diagnoses the gyn gave me valtrex which I did not take bc I was in so much pain I could not move for 2 days.  Groin lymphs were swollen I had fever , tired etc.  I am wondering if I had taken the valtrex would it have kinda liked stopped the virus in it’s tracks enough to reproduce? Do people see a correlation between no more outbreaks and immediate initial valtrex  use ? I am 43, I never thought this wound happen as I am not a promiscuous person, I hardly date and I always use protection when I do have intercouse , have yearly std tests. I’m just so sad that i’m at this point right now . I’m trying not to get depressed but this is making my body feel miserable. I’m an avid runner and biker and mom of two teens. I feel like my life as I knew is over. I want to feel better already.
