the worst possible scenario

Recommended Posts


the worst thing happened. my sister (who doesn't know i have H) and her boyfriend set me up on a date with a great guy. i keep thinking, "why couldn't i have met him last year". i don't know what to do. my instinct is to push him away. i like him too much and i'm afraid that when i tell him i'm going to hurt him and he's going to reject me. and i'm also afraid that my sister my her boyfriend would find out also.i like this guy, but i don't want to be rejected. i don't know what to do.

any advice?

The best advice I can give u is to TAKE THINGS SLOW. Feel him out..a trick my friend not me uses is to bring up STDS and inch in herpes..she doesnt tell the person she.has it..she wants a reaction before putting herself out there.

I perfer to be more straightfoward BUT ONLY AFTER I ESTABLISH A LEVEL OF TRUST.

GOOD LUCK and remember u deserve LOVE .

I agree with ICherri- take it slow! Allow him to feel an intimate emotional connection to you before getting into the intimate sexual realm. Establishing that friendship will give you a stronger bond that can be bigger than the HSV issue. It will also make him protective of the information once you tell him (and your sister won't find out). Give yourself this chance!

      Amenamevir has a plasma half-life of 8-9 hours (as opposed to 2-3 hours for acyclovir), which means you're actively suppressing the virus for a much longer part of the day. Add to that the non-linear synergy of different mechanisms, and for many this combination could mean full symptom relief. We don't know yet, but it's not impossible. Can't wait for Amanalief to get approval for HSV and come to the US. It's all up to the FDA really. https://accp1.onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/full/10.1002/cpdd.630

      I think Dr. Jerome is just being cautious. I've followed what he's done and have 100% confidence in him. Predicting the exact number of years to a cure would be hard, but their last article about HSV makes me think it can't be too far off.

      Did you ever find out if this was herpes or not?

      @GotMeAtLast I doubt the doctor actually told you that, that doesn’t explain why you kept coming here looking for validation.  By your own admission, you have had oral HSV-1 for years. Further you have never swabbed positive from your genital region. Everyone is allowed to form their own conclusions on the basis of that truth. If you wish to conclude you have genital herpes, that’s OK. If I want to conclude you don’t, that’s OK.
