Outted Myself on AIM


Recommended Posts

Well... I did what I thought I'd never do. I outted myself on AIM. (AOL instant messaging) I normally frequent the chatrooms and have become kind of a regular "face" there. It is not a place where you want to air your dirty laundry. There is alot of fighting amongst the regs and there are quite a few cruel people on there. I became ingaged in a discussion and one thing lead to another and... I outted myself. Suprisingly, it was well taken. Time will tell if I've become the new aim pariah. I felt an overwhelming urge to warn people that condoms do not protect you from all STD's. Hell I want to make a public service announcement on TV, visit schools, tell it to the world. I wished I had been more informed. I know it's the embarassment, the shame that keeps us from warning others. It was a very brave (albeit crazy) thing for me to do. And as much as I love having this forum of message boards and posting... I needed to be able to chat about it.

So... if anyone wants to chat on AIM with me please visit the AIM chatrooms at http://www.aim.com/community/chats.adp I'm normally in 40's, 50's or Older Women under the screen name oO Whimsy Oo. You'll have to get my attention in the room as I have blocks set up to keep random people from IM'ing me. Just say you want to talk about Faithful, I'll know what you mean.

If I've informed one person, I'll be happy. If they inform 1 person, and they another....it'll be a start.

Wow...you can barely see my balls in this skirt:lol:

How you feel is infact how you feel but based on what you have shared here in this forum I think there is no reason you should feel "ashamed". So how about it - lift up that chin and hold your head up high.

I am proud of you for sharing the truth with others and you deserve to be complimented for making a great contribution to getting the word out.

Thank you Caliope,

I imagine everyone feels ashamed, no matter how they contracted it. I do however feel partially responsible, even though it wasn't my act that lead to this. I don't feel my husband would have ever gone through that door, had I not left it open. My chin is up today. Tomorrow may be another story. I am just discovering that the rash I am dealing with, is the molluscum contagiosa, not an outbreak. So while I was thinking, compared to everything I've read, I was ready to count myself lucky...I don't even know how my first outbreak will be. Hopefully I've got some good karma coming my way.

I certainly hope that you never have an ob. I didn't for 8 years.

And I'm going to be stubborn and insist that you are not at fault because we each make our own choices regardless of what permissions are granted to us. Just because I have permission to jump into the deep end of the pool doesn't mean that I should.

Peace and harmony to you.

      I had an IGG test  and the ranges were out of range and high  HSV 1 was 42 and HSV 2 was 19 so I guess it was accurate but the problem now is I can't figure out when or who I got it from. In 2018 to 2019 when I was with my ex I was STD tested but not sure if herpes was included but my ex was supposed to get tested but refused. I experienced some trauma with him and didn't date until a year and a half later so I'm confused. The guy I dated after the ex who didn't want to be tested I told them a week ago about my results he was trying to be there for me and understanding,I told him to get tested but to request a herpes blood test , because he had no noticeable lesions or bumps ever is what he said and I never noticed any on him now he has shut down all his social media and I can't reach him. Hoping he's okay, I feel bad because in 2018 I did have what I was told it was an abrasion that tingled but at my doctor the day I was tested they told me it wasn't herpes but I think it was only a visible diagnosis. I keep having it reoccur from time to time

      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.
