Staying positive


Recommended Posts

I'm trying to learn as much as I can about myself to help me stay positive about the the HSV2. It's hard hearing about this right before Christmas. But I know I'll be okay. Only thing now is to remember that I have it. I know it's not as bad as it seems. I'm still thanking God that he is giving me a chance to love and live in a different point of view. I am healthy...for the most part. I'm trying to be light about the situation.

Thats a great attitude to have! It gets better I promise you. Take it from me, I almost ended my life when I first got diagnosed and now I have a better life than i have ever had. there are many things much worse in the world. 

Much love,

Thats great to have that support Shae. I contracted it after my ex bf who i was with for 7 years cheated on me. At first he blamed me made me feel disgusting and then I found out the truth. I left him eventually and felt completely alone. This website and the community here helped me feel like I wasn't alone. So many people have this virus and many people do not even know that they have it. Remember you are still you. Nothing has changed.

Well I'm not sure where I got it from. My ex boyfriend was cheating on me constantly but I think he is where i contracted it from but can't prove it. He and my recent boyfriend are the only guys I've slept with this year. I was wondering if I was donating plasma would they tell me if I had herpes?

I'm a blood, platelet, and plasma donor and I haven't ever been told my HSV status.. nor have I ever seen it on my file. I'm thinking it's because HSV just doesn't affect blood products.

      Hi guys, My name is Shelly. I'm 25 years old! I've had Herpes for 5 going on 6 years now. I'm just here hoping to learn more ways to deal with the situation and meet new people who actually know what I'm going through!  Thank you for reading! 💕

      Hey @Zrozpaczona9 that looks like folliculitis to me, that’s independent of the question of herpes. The doctor is wrong in the sense that a negative IgG test is beyond reasonable doubt that you do not have herpes. It is a small percentage of people for which a false negative occurs. The doctor is right to take a swab to increase your confidence that there’s no herpes present. I’m sure you’ll have your result soon.

      Hey @WilsoInAus miałam dzisiaj wizytę u dermatologa, gdyż dostałam zmian w pachwinie, w trakcie wakacji nad morzem. Udałam sie tam ze zmianami w postaci strupów. Powiedział ze nie można wykluczyć opryszczki mimo negatywnego wyniku Hsv igg i zalecił wymaz z pochwy na Hsv i inne choroby. Wytłumaczyłam mu że zmiany zamieniają się w strup, ale nie ma w nich płynu, więc zalecił badanie śluzu pochwy na hsv PCR, zastanawiam się czy ma to sens, i czy wirusa można wykryć na podstawie tego badania w wydzielin z szyjki macicy. Z góry dziekuje za pomoc

      In this forum we will discuss does lume work Lume is paraben-free and uses several natural ingredients like Aloe barbadensis leaf juice, tapioca starch, and Maranta arundinacea root powder (also known as arrowroot powder) to control odor and sweat. One of the key Lume deodorant ingredients is mandelic acid, an AHA found in skin care products, which also has an antibacterial effect.

      Ibuprofen medicine is a painkiller. Can you take ibuprofen on an empty stomach  Some people take medicine empty stomach which is not good for our health. Because painkiller kind of medicine is very strong and can harm your liver. Medicine makes many strong ingredients. like Lactose, corn starch, hypromellose, sodium starch glycolate, colloidal anhydrous silica, magnesium stearate, sucrose, talc, titanium dioxide (E171), and carnauba wax.
