Hi everyone,
just recently got diagnosed, actually still in the doctors office now. I'm feeling a mix of emotions both anxious, embarrassed, angry. I balled my eyes out to my doctor and although she tried to comfort me I still can't help but feeling at a loss for words.


Sounds selfish but I am nervous and anxious about dating now. I already have a fear of never getting married and now my fear has grown. On top of breaking off an engagement because my ex-fiancé not only gave my herpes, but also chlamydia and gonorrhea after being overseas.

Anyone have any tips on how to come out and tell close family and friends. I really could use someone to talk to but I feel alone more than ever right now

hey i know how you feel.  Its really difficult at first. It took me 2 years to say anything.  Honestly tell your closest family or friend, someone that will understand. I can't begin to tell you how much better you feel by just having one person to talk to about it. Also there are plenty of us on here to help.

Thank you so much! I'll be reaching out to you since I'm on a few hours into being diagnosed.

      Do you shop at Amazon.com? Next time you shop, you can also automatically donate a portion of the proceeds to the Colorado Alphaherpesvirus Latency Society.  This Society organizes the symposium on latency of herpes viruses.  It was here that Keith Jerome announced that he had edited almost 20%-30% of latent HSV in mice last year. (http://www.ucdenver.edu/academics/colleges/medicalschool/departments/neurology/CALS/Documents/2018 CALS abstracts.pdf) You have to go through smile.amazon.com to set up ongoing donations whenever you shop through smile.amazon.com. ____________________________________________________________________________________________ Yes, I understand that I must always start at smile.amazon.com to support Colorado Alphaherpesvirus Latency Society. Why is there a separate URL? The AmazonSmile program offers customers a new benefit, making a donation to your favorite charity. We're able to provide this benefit to you when you choose to start your shopping at smile.amazon.com in part because we expect AmazonSmile to grow primarily through word of mouth instead of paid advertising—and this enables us to fund donations to our customers’ favorite organizations.

      WOW, it's true.  So cool!  Thanks for sharing. In my view, for the time being, we can just help support the Colorado Alphaherpesvirus Latency Society, rather than asking Fred Hutch to set something up through Amazon.   Here is an important message though, you have to go through smile.amazon.com to do the donation. According to them:     Yes, I understand that I must always start at smile.amazon.com to support Colorado Alphaherpesvirus Latency Society. Why is there a separate URL?
