"I choose"


Recommended Posts

Just checked out the India Arie CD "testimony: vol 1 love & relationships"

She is sooo great. Just heard "I choose" track 15. I'm gonna share the lyrics because i think they rock (the rest of the cd helps in all healing matters as well; Man i love her!)

lyrics:

Because you never know where life is gonna take you

And you can’t change where you’ve been

But today, I have the opportunity to choose

Here I am now looking at 30 and I got so much to say

Gotta get this off of my chest, I gotta let it go today

I was always too concerned about what everybody would think

But I can’t live for everybody; I gotta live my life for me, Yea

I’ve reached a fork in the road of my life where

Ain’t nothing gonna happen unless I decide

And I choose, to be the best that I can be

I choose, to be authentic in everything

I do, my past don’t dictate who

I am, I choose

I don’ been through some painful things I thought I would never make it through

Filled up with shame from the top of my head to the soles of my shoes

I’ve put myself in so many chaotic circumstances

By the grace of God I’ve been given so many second chances

But today I decided to let it all go

I’m dropping these bags, I’m making room for my joy

And I choose, to be the best that I can be

I choose, to be authentic in everything

I do, my past don’t dictate who

I am, I choose

Release the guilt about why things happen the way they do

Cause life is gonna do what it do

And everyday I have the opportunity to choose

From this day forward, I’m going to be exactly who I am

I don’t need to change the way that I live just to get a man, no

I even had a talk with my mama and I told her today I’m grown

From this day forward every decision that I make will be my own

And I choose, to be the best that I can be

I choose, to be courageous in everything

I do, my past don't dictate who

I am, I choose

And I choose, to be the best that I can be

I choose, to be authentic in everything

I do, my past don't dictate who

I am, I choose

Because you never know where life is gonna take you

And you can’t change where you’ve been

But today, I have the opportunity to choose

Release the guilt about why things happen the way they do

Cause life is gonna do what it do

And everyday I have the opportunity to choose

Peace 'yall!!!

      No diagnosis yet. I haven’t had sex in 3 months, this just popped up yesterday. No warning. I have had sex with 2 men in the last 10 years and they were both this year. One unprotected, we both were tested and negative for everything. No hsv test since neither of us had symptoms. The ulcer is near my clitoris. The only thing I can think of is possibly friction from suction vibrator a couple days before this showed up. Please help, I’m terrified.

      Nath kiepsko z twoją nadzieją czarno to widzę. O ile patrzyłem sprawdź sam clinical trials Priteliviru. Badanie Priteliviru kończy fazę 2 w maju 2021 roku.Gdzie jeszcze faza 3 może 2024 rok to bym się zgodził. Też bym chciał żeby zatwierdzili Pritelivir za rok.

      I have had G-HSV1 for about about a year and a half now. I am a woman who recently started seeing another woman who also has HSV1 but only orally. She has experienced major health anxiety with fear of giving it to other people, as have I, but was wondering if we are completley in the clear because of antibodies or do we still need to be cautious? Does anyone have any articles about this? She is concerned about giving me something oral and I am concerned about giving her something genital so any research or reassurance would be helpful! Also when I got diagnosed I got swab tested and it confirmed I had G-HSV1 and nothing has ever came up orally but is there a possibility I have it orally too and it just has never shown up? Apologies if these are dumb questions in the wrong place but any help would be appreciated.

      My apologies is this has already been shared and discussed, but I saw that Fred Hutch is making some headway in the Epstein Barr/ mononucleosis /Herpes 4 research!!    https://www.fredhutch.org/en/news/center-news/2020/06/epstein-barr-virus-antibody.html Another study I read (& can't find again) shows that the presence of another virus in the body enhances HSV. That's why an OB occurs when we get a cold or flu, not just a basic drop in immune function. So, I'm thinking that this could be true also if someone has several herpes viruses 😓

      Hi Cas9. I requested this test on my own in a laboratory, because I was having pain and burning in my penis glans (without having any lesion visible).  I've talked to my doctors, and they say that I shouldn't worry, that this is something normal in the population. In short, none of them have suggested any other tests. In this post I explained what has been happening to me. Regardless of what is causing me this discomfort (which has been going on for more than 5 months) according to the test I am a carrier of the virus. Now what should I do in my relationships? Telling girls something like....  hey look I can't kiss you because I have herpes but I don't know where it is..... Its awful... man
