I'm so scared


Recommended Posts

Can't stop crying . So sureal. I am still waiting to wake up. I am married and went to a sales function where I got drunk and had an affair with one of my sales guys and all becasue of alcohol!! After being misdiagnosed for 4 months, 4 MONTHS!!!!!! I went to a clinic and asked to be tested for herpes and HIV. Tested positive for HSV2 - I had burning for so long. Nothing else. I am waiting for the BIG OUTBREAK and I am so damn scared. I even have an operation scheduled at Stanford for July 31 because they told me it was interstitial cystitis!!! Just unbelieveable - all the doctors I saw, and I saw at least 5, said it was not herpes, just can't believe it - I cheated on my wonderful husband of ten years and now I may have infected him. When I called the guy all he could tell me is he was sorry and asked me who was I going to tell. BASTARD! I went to a psycotherapist who almost admittted me becasue I feel I am having a nervous breakdown and just can't stop crying. The cops even showed up at my house after I didn't answer my phone. I thought the men in the little white coats were not far behind. I feel alone, helpless and cannot stop crying. I never typed so fast in my life! I did tell my husband, after I got the reults a few days ago, and he will be tested next week. He is a farmer and this is just going to kill him if he has it. He is devasted but is sticking by my side. What a husband, huh? Thanks for listening because right now this forum is all I have. For two days I couldn't even figure out how to post a message as I was so damn distraught! I cannot thank you enough -

I hate this has happened, it's a risk anyone takes must recognize, drunk or sober. Well, you have told the person who should know this and it sounds as if he has begun to forgive you, I hope you can both talk openly about the pain this has caused to all. You have to learn to forgive yourself as well. I wish the best for both you and your husband.

Mike's right. You have to forgive yourself. Granted, you made a mistake, but you're trying to make it right, and that's all you can do. All of us are given to moments of weakness. It's human. But what's done is done, and the best thing both of you can do now is try to move forward. Some of life's lessons are hard, and they don't get much harder than what you're going through, but you can get through this, and so can your husband. I'm sure he can see how terrible you feel, and that your regret is sincere. I feel for you. But if you can both be strong and be supportive of each other, you'll make it through. Good luck. Let us know how you're doing, okay? We care.

Hello Brookie-

First off--you're not alone in this. While some of our backgrounds/histories are very different we all have this in common...I've found comfort in that and it has helped me both physically and mentally.

My story is nearly identical to yours...I contracted HSV-2 through a drunken one-night affair. I was to FOUR different Drs in 5 days. Two trips to the ER, one to my family practice, and it took a "follow up" to my OB to determine herpes...I was diagnosed with a urinary tract infection, a kidney infection, and pelvic inflamitory disease...it just goes to show how tricky this virus can be.

My husband too has forgiven me...I too am having an extremely difficult time forgiving myself. We have yet to make love since my diagnosis back in the end of May, because I can't tell what the heck my body is doing, and I'm so terribly scared that I might pass it to him.

Please let me or anyone else here know if there is anything we can do to help you get through this. Keep your chin up, once you're body begins to heal you'll be able to start the emotional battle...

Very best wishes.

So scared

I wish, god how I wish I had someone to talk to face to face. No support groups anywhere near me. It's horrible. If so many people have it why don't I know anyone who has it?? I am so sick, mentally and physically. It is killing me.

Don't you have a close friend or family member? Someone you know will not judge you but just listen and talk? Does your husband want to talk?

You can always come here for support, but I think it would be good to find someone close to see face to face. I'm sure you know someone.

Best wishes,

      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.
