Hi, today I feel the necessity to express why I decided tobecame a member of the HC Support group. As some of you know I have beendiagnosed whit herpes type 1 and 2 about four years ago. What my doctor told meafter giving me that news was “feel lucky that is not HIV”. In here I had learned that this is a virusthat may be dormant in my system. After the diagnosis I felt that I was filthyand unworthy, I avoided any kind of contact con other people. I disclosed to 5members of my family and my best friend. One of my brothers did not take it sowell and he does not be near me often, my best friend walk away from me withoutsaying anything. Over Christmas Eve my other brother had a talk with me andmake me promised him that I was going to look for help and here I am.

Besides having herpes I have fibromyalgia for 13 years nowand RA for a year, as far as I know these are all due to a deficient immunesystem. Almost 17 years ago and during my son’s pregnancy I was diagnosed with Hypothyroidism.I have always taking multi vitamins and vitamin C but none of my doctors have neverexplained about the health problems that I seem to have or that are coming myway doe to my immune system deficient.

Today I have a cold for the 7th time since Augustof 2012 and what is killing me now is the fibromyalgia. I have fever of over 100° and I was told bythe nurse to just rest and take some ibuprofen and plenty of liquids. These arethe days that I feel depress and very but I mean very upset!

Some of you may think that I need to talk to a professional,a psychiatric or a therapist. I had than that for years and at the end I feelthat they just not help me, at least not the way I was hoping to be help. I donot expect them to solve my problems but I believe that they are more than capableto help me understand what I am going through. I was wishing for them to saysomething like:” go to the library or internet and research on immune system deceased’s”.I know they have so many patients but I just do not understand the fact thatthey did not said anything about immune system like herpes, chicken pox andmono when they know that I had those too.

I know now that herpes is also a skin condition, I haveeczema and dermatitis since childhood and I just think that is not fair thatnobody give me a hint about all this. I am not blaming anybody about it but Ijust feel very frustrated about it.

I also feel very lucky that in two years I haven’t have anyoutbreaks, I also think is because I am not sexually active for the 7 years. Thetwo outbreaks I had were stress related, if it was not for that I may neverknow that I have H.

I do not mean to be offensive to anybody; I’m just trying toexpress how I feel and also thank you all for giving me the opportunity to doit here.

Thanks for your time.

Hi Mary welcome to our site :) . It's like I always say we all usually have bigger issues than h. I have had ghsv2 for 25 and I've only had two outbreaks ever. My second was stresses related. I'm married for 22 years and I do have sexy times monthly. So I can't say if not having sexy times for 7 years has kept you h free from outbreaks. My antivirals keep my outbreaks at bay and reduce my shedding and keep my husband a non h man still. It's great that we have a site to vent and share our stories. Once again welcome to the family. Take care Ace :)

      No I’m sorry the only person that needs to be reported is you. Your posts are unacceptable by societal standards, that’s plain to all readers. Your damage to people with HSV is reprehensible. The only person bashing is you, until your attitude changes and you grow up, there is no place for you on this website.

      Okay,  here's an update... the new site that was bothering me this morning looks clearer and is no longer raised but it's still red.  I've started using tea tree oil mixed with coconut after someone suggested it.   I didn't take an extra dose so I don't know if it was the oil or the medicine.   I'm driving myself nuts with all of this.

      @WilsoInAus 

      The truth of the matter is that you have no idea what you're talking about.  You seriously have issues trying to tell someone about how they suffer, what their test results are.  You apparently suffer from HSV-1 oral based on your profile and you're here for who knows why...sure you must suffer a lot or possibly none at all.  Either way most of the population is okay with someone have HSV-1 orally.  HSV-2 Genital & Oral is a different ballgame for obvious reasons. 

      You think that by my symptoms which include 5 oral lesions since exposure and test results aren't good enough.  I don't need to post my results online to let the world see.  In fact I am done explaining myself. 

      THIS IS A SUPPORT COMMUNITY NOT A BASH COMMUNITY. YOU THINK IT'S OKAY TO BASH PEOPLE FOR LORD KNOW WHAT REASON.  You attempt to manipulate my character with your slander of my character.  The only person proving them self of poor character here is yourself.  

      I have reported you. You have no reason to be here, you are the classical keyboard warrior-troll. I have every right to be pissed off and trust me if I could. I would beat the shit out of you, bc you need lessons learned.  You're alien trying to tell another human being his/her symptoms and feelings.  FUCK OFF. I will never reply to you again. I don't care how much you try to stir the pot. You have lost all credibility and you have nothing better to do than try to demoralize other people. You're a shitty human being.

      @Tone123 could of points. A person with genital herpes is already infected through their entire genital area as marked out roughly by a pair of boxer shorts. Once your immune system is in full swing (a few months from infection) then further infection of the same type, regardless of any sub strains, is of negligible chance.

      You can have HIV for many years without developing AIDs, if that is what you're asking.
