Well....

I'm at the 10 month mark post positive results. I'm having something...I just noticed it last night but it's not remotely like an OB that most people describe.

Other than that, things are going good. My guy finally proposed this last Saturday (7-21-07). I've got a ring and everything. He'll be home in 13 months.

I traveled with a few friends to see him and one had her step-daughter with her. We got to talking about shit as a group and I spilled about the herpes. I'm extremely open with it and am always informing people that they are not safe, no matter how much they think they are. I'm just a nice girl and something bad happened.

Anyway, this poor girl (19) has HSV2 and has been so embarrassed about it and never able to talk to anyone who understands. Physicians and nurses are genuinely stupid when it comes to caring for us LOL. She's on Valtrax but there's such a social stigma associated with HSV that it's hard to find someone in the 'real world' that has to deal with it too. Her step-mom actually thanked me later because it's been really hard for her to deal with not having anyone to understand....sort of how we all felt before we found our support forums and such.

Congrats for you and I am glad that she finally has someone to talk to. This just goes to show that we do not know who has this virus and it is sort of difficult for most people to tell some they have it. That is why this site is so helpful and informative.

      Why is it your worst fear to have GHSV-1?

      Not sure if this has already been mentioned before, could we donate to his lab? Hsv specifically?

      It can be very difficult to diagnose I do not know the lab discussed here but I have read about sexual health clinics that no longer use the blood tests for this reason of false negatives. Even swabs can be hard they were in my case.  I know I have it and never resorted to the biopsy.

      Do your own research and consult with GP's. I would assume you have this until its totally ruled out.  

      I read about a person on this site who tested neg on the IgG and pos on the weston blot.

      Please do your own research.

      If it is an issue why not speak to admin about creating two separate threads...one for those looking at natural management and "supposed" natural cures and one looking at medical breakthroughs. That way both interests are served, no one is offended and people who wish to look at both can. No one is excluded and everyone included. Those who want to stay with the medical threads can. Maybe there will be less issues that way. 

      Personally I would prefer not to engage with those who are seeking vaccines and gene tech ect esp if they are nasty or condescending and prefer to support and encourage like minded without the excessive debates in a supported enviro.

      Just putting it out there.

      do not panic. be more careful in future and work through the tests. you are better to assume you do and isolate a bit and watch the symptoms. it is hard to test for via blood, and swabs. weston blot is supposed to be most reliable and biopsy too although extreme. red lump that sort of crusted - well herpes symptoms vary widely. 

      it can be hard to deal with doctors as they can assume you do not have it if some test come back neg...they do not always take the attitude to look for it.

      do not panic and follow the steps and research.
