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.

      All I know is what the pipeline says. And it says that trials don't start until 2019/2020. How long they will run and whether they will be successful remains to be seen. Also remember that the start of trials depends on whether the animal studies are successful. And there are always delays even when things are going well from a medical standpoint. So don't get your hopes too high that the trials will start as they currently state. Their biologic is a functional cure at best, not a sterilizing cure. But I don't think there will be too many complaints about that. I thought you already new about Excision Bio and their work.

      It is possible, but id be getting a definitive test. Id get a swab and blood test for confirmation.

      This is not caused most probably by herpes. Suggest you need to see a doctor to pursue some other directions.

      You said that you hoped this would help someone. Well, today it helped me.  I've been broken too many times to count. Unlike that glow stick though we get broken over and over again sometimes. But if we allow ourselves to heal from the brokenness; we can light up this dark world.Thank you:)

      yeah i can tell though shes not open minded with herpes she said it was scary too date knowing that it's around. That seems like a give away towards being rejected,
