I'm sorry things didn't work out between you two. It makes my heart ache for you but know that if she couldn't accept this, then it is for the best in the long run. We all need to find partners in life who are supportive, and accepting. Know that there are kind, loving, and accepting woman out there that will love you unconditionally. You have to wait for the right one. I am with someone, but If I was single I would hold off telling someone I was dating until date 3-4 when I know 1. whether I want to bother disclosing to this person (are we going to move forward), and 2. before I become too emotionally attached. And good on you for actually disclosing, my giver didn't disclose to me, so you definitely did the right thing.
This is my first time coming to a forum
I thought maybe coming here might help
so i was diagnosed alittle while ago and since then I haven't really talked to anyone I kept to myself. I was scared I guess, back in high school I was use to being rejected but I got over it
however this time it actually hurt. I finally opened up to a wonderful woman just perfect in so many ways I finally told her and she respectfully told me she couldn't continue dating
finally after keeping to myself and no one knowing not even family or the person who gave me herpes I finally had the guts to tell her and when she told me that it hurt, still does
but honestly I don't blame her flip the rolls I'd probably do the same thing I just wish I didn't have to do this again.
Waiting months until I actually meet someone who cares about me and having to build the guts up to tell then this again
I wish this was easier
I wish the rejection was like high school
Is it possible to have a cold sore with just 1 blister.
This boy i have been seeing says he "doesn't know what a cold sore is" and that the 1 blister on his lip was just a "sore"
I trusted him and am very afraid I contracted oral and vaginal hsv 1 from him?
Hi there I think you're telling my story I too have genital herpes I don't know if it's one or two but I think it is too I've been told different things by different doctors the day I was diagnosed I was with a man I had just met and it was heartbreaking to hear the doctor tell me this news over the phone and he was sitting there right next to me and I had to act like nothing happened I thought I was going to die right there on the spot anyways it's six months later I finally told him about the herpes at 6 weeks and he was totally accepting and we are in a great relationship so just have faith that all things are going to work out for you and honesty is the best policy. Also please keep sharing how your feeling and hopefully you'll find the support you need here on this website as I did
"...In practical terms, less than a 2.0-fold effect in science is generally a losing proposition, and a 1.0-fold effect is, by definition, “NO EFFECT” at all. Real scientific discoveries that are worth talking about are generally based upon 5- to 500-fold effects. The latest GEN-003 vaccine press-release reports that their therapeutic HSV-2 vaccine achieves a 1.7-fold reduction in HSV-2 shedding that is simply not worth discussing..."
While Halford trash talked Dr. Jacobs' live, gD-2-deleted vaccine, the latest publication for that vaccine has shown amazing results in mice.
In this case, it's hard to deny the numbers and spin them too optimistically. 40% reduction is kind of a garbage result. I've read more apathetic and negative responses from GEN-003 participants than positive ones. Of the positives, one male (member here) stated how decreased prodrome and better overall situation; very happy with GEN-003. Another that I read recently (GenGirl?), reported how GEN-003 really helped reduce her issues. And that's great. They probably represent the higher/promising end of the bell-curve/average. I can't help but remember all the negative and apathetic responses though. Two people reporting that their prodrome got worse, others say the trip expenses weren't worth it/waste of time and don't know if the vaccine did anything, one person has (increased?) nerve pain as a result of GEN-003. Halford even put out his anecdotal references about some GEN-003 participants who didn't notice much improvement. Of course there are people who get considerable benefit from this vaccine but their voices seem to be overshadowed by those who don't. Also, it's just a vaccine. Halford makes very cocky claims about his vaccine. I can't blame him for the crap he's had to put up with. ..but because it's a live-attenuated virus, it will perform better than throwing subunits at someone.
Maybe a better way of comparing subunit vaccines and whole, live-attenuated ones is by this example...
-I'm I an and HSV subunit Here, immune system/body to vaccine the try right your send message the.
-Here, I'm an HSV, live-attenuated vaccine and I try to send your body the right message.
The subunit vaccine is just an alphabet soup of different surface proteins. They are the right words but they're not being direct in the message they're trying to convey.
my partner had one clear blister.. he said it didn't hurt at all.
this photo is from the day after and it never crusted
is this a cold sore?
please help I am very scared he also performed oral sex on me.
