Thank you Acesheart 1 for the greeting. (I like your "gift" quote above). I got on this site because I like to keep up on the latest medical news on the cure of H particularly and ran across the support network. I thought I adjusted to this situation and it really does not affect my life (I almost forget I have this) until I meet someone that I really like and have to think about telling him about this situation and that sucks! (LOL) I have not really dated since I found out summer of 2012. I have met some people on PS site, but none were in my home town, so we end up just phone buddies. So I thought I could find some support on here. lovey3000:)

Honey here is a wonderful way to start the "Talk" it is by another Moderator and he has both h1 & h2 he gives this talk and has never been refused or turned down. I don't give the talk , my hubby don't let me date :giggle: I gave it 23years ago and he waited 2 yrs for me to be emotionally & physically ready before we ever had sexy times. He was looking for a partner and did not want a msrightnow, but rather a Mrs.Rightfor Me :) . He found it and a whole lot of baggage with it. He accepted my h way before I did. Since I was outed to the whole DAMN world by my ex, he knew I had a virus and heard what was being said, he chose me just as I chose him. You will find many here with stories like yours and mine and some are still looking too. Have you thought of posting in the Support Buddies Section Where Y'all from ? This is a great place to meet others that are or maybe closer to your state too. Yes, I no longer think of the herps except when I come here and then I still feel safer than I did back then. Back 26 years ago we had no Internets so it was lonely and no support or information either so definitely harder than today's newly diagnosed. You will get what you need here to help educate you and keep you up to date on the Herpes Treatments and Cures sections and also you will hear from many who are like me, we don't need a cure we have decided, chosen to live :) . Hugs Truly, Aces . Have you read this book www.westoverheights.com it is very good and can help ease some of your worries. Take care Aces :itllbeok: http://www.herpes-coldsores.com/messageforum/threads/how-i-give-the-talk.52875/unread

      Sorry @Voyager2 it's such a garbage thing and you don't deserve that sort of treatment. I am hoping something comes out of the woodwork in the near future. I want that party in time square and I am sure @Sillybrain2 would be there too, We'd probably party all year, we've been waiting too long for this.

      There’s a lot of what looks like bro science here, can you point to any studies or views by experts that support this? Lets get a few facts on the table and see where that might lead us. Does HSV 1/2 generally cause nerve damage? Experts say no. Not even the likes of Terri Warren, Anna Wald and William Halford have isentifed this. Does an infection cause nerve and other complications at the time of primary or initial infection with HSV-2. Experts say yes. It is well researched. Plenty of examples explained as Elsberg syndrome for example point to particular lesions on the spinal column that cause issues. In nearly all cases healing occurs within a few months. Note that this is not to be confused with CMV/VZV caused Elsberg which is generally more serious and sometimes permanent. All herpes related issues will respond well to acyclovir. There are also related issues with the immune system that can be triggered by viral infections, most of which are also self limiting.

      Keep asking away @thebrightsidegirl You’ll get some good answers from experienced folk here, mostly! For a person with genital HSV-1, yes they can get genital HSV-2 although the chances appear to be somewhat reduced. No one knows by how much. People with both types identified in the one location are very rare indeed, although there’d be under-reporting. For your boyfriend, it sounds like some testing would be a good idea. Can he get a swab if the sores?

      Do you? I think people can read your story and decide for themselves, please pay that respect to people to understand your full story, don't our readers deserve that?   That's mice!??! On the basis of mice you pretend that what I write is wrong? I am relaying research into humans that is far more progressed than these papers on mice. Publish one paper that shows HSV-2 has caused nerve damage (I mean damage) to genital nerves. And given that there are 4 billion people with HSV-1, show us one documented case of nerve damage conclusively from HSV-1? The problem with mice models is that their immune system does not produce human immune response interferons and natural killer cells, not to mention the enhancements to neural density that accompanies the immune response.
