Feeling isolated

Recommended Posts

Gotahandle

Hi I was diagnosed about 3 weeks ago and was dealing with self esteem/worth issues before that. I was feeling better after being added to a few fb groups but then fb decided to suspend my account for using a fake name, so now I'm back to having basically no one to talk to. 

The fb groups are good because they show how many people have the same condition. Hopefully I can get back in these groups soon with my new account because I'm feeling very isolated again

Hi @Gotahandle. You are definitely not alone. There are millions and millions and millions of us.

I think if you make a new Facebook account with a vaguely plossible name and a new email account, you'll be on again in no time. 

How are you doing?

You can join Facebook groups with your own name it is private because I'm one of them as well so you don't have to make up a false name

Yeah, if I happens again I will just use my real fb account to avoid the issue in the future. I'm not really sure why my account was flagged considering all the fake accounts on fb; it could have been the google number/gmail didn't match perfectly or that I used my real face pic in my profile, my name was too weird(last name of the city I happened to b from) or it was a truly random that fb found my profile, I don't know 

what really sucks in losing contact with someone, I have to find them again

Secret fb groups that you have to be invited & added into. Most are for social reasons and based on location. It would be nice to have a list of different groups and the admin to contact to get in them. There was a one group I was added into but I forgot the name of it

      That's exactly right, you can return to your life and get the blood test as a sleep easy in 12 weeks time (from the last episode).

      Him and his ex have regular breakouts with all the traditional symptoms and I believe he was swabbed.  So I can return to life as it was before all of this drama ? I may still look into a blood test is I am confident it is accurate

      @Laurenhelena how is this guy sure he has herpes? All sounding a bit odd to me. Yes it is very unlikely you will develop lesions now. Rubbing skin to skin is required for any feasible transmission chance. The odds of transmission with unprotected vaginal sex are of the order of 0.08% per epsiode. Halve this if a condom is worn. Compare that to chamydia that has about a 33% chance of transmission with unprotected sex; now that's contagious!

      I just feel that it’s known as such a contagious STD - I’ve been lying to my family cause when I tried to talk about it they became very anxious and begged me to tell them I hadn’t slept with him when I had - If someone told me that they slept with someone with genital herpes my mind would instantly think they had it.  So it’s unlikely then that I’m going to get symptoms now? I’m not going anything further with that guy but we have cuddled and kissed in bed with underwear on, is that ok?  Im quite sure he has hsv2 given that his ex gave it to him through a threesome  I’ve never had a cold sore
