Tips for a newbie

Recommended Posts

Live.around

Hello everyone, 

I've been told by the doctor 5 days ago I have herpes, I was shocked for the first two days, crying in my room. I'm trying to change my mindset now, because I know the more stressed and anxious I become the longer it will take for the symptoms to go away. Any advice on what to do?

Also I haven't told anyone, I don't have a partner. I was trying to tell my brother earlier but I just couldn't say it. That's why I decided to join this forum. I noticed I'm starting to get more isolated, I don't want to talk to anyone, I'm ignoring people's calls. Should I tell someone?

Thank you

This sounds like a surprise. Are you able to share what herpes you have been diagnosed with?

Sorry to hear of your receiving such a diagnosis but trust you have found a great group, which I am new to myself. I have sound solace here and understand how you feel because I continue to feel the same way. Hopefully, the possible cure trials will show promising results, none of us will have to worry about this again, and this forum will continue to be here as a community to share because there is nothing like having people who understand what you are dealing with. But until then know that you will have all of this forum's support and compassion.

Thank you, how are you coping? I'm starting to feel stronger now and my symptoms are almost gone, I just feel a bit weak. I have a doctor appointment next week and then they will tell me what kind of hsv I've got. I don't really understand the difference between them. Hope you are feeling better.

      For those of you with GHSV 1 or 2 how did you know you were having a second outbreak? I was diagnosed with GHSV-1 a month ago and have had no symptoms till now. For the past two days I've been super itchy but there are no bumps/ulcers like last time. I read somewhere that some people experience periodic itchiness and no other symptoms so I'm wondering, is this super common and is what is happening to me? Or do I need to prepare myself that this is most likely a second outbreak in it's initial stages?

      We havent cured things not because we can't its because profits are a bigger priority. Trust me when I say I know it sounds like conspiracy talk but look at where and what they throw money at.... sickness is lucrative. So is death (War) The military budget is criminal to say the least, as is Nasa's budget That's just simple math, then look at all the obscene hurdles set in place to help deter anyone from going the distance. They only cry ethics when it comes to anything that could potentially benefit the greater good.

      I think it is very important for you to find out whether you carry HSV-1 or not. If you do, then any concerns you may have about HSV-1 are negligible. Many people carry an oral HSV-1, like your partner. This will be the only region of her body infected, that is the mouth in a practical sense. No contact with the mouth means no chance of infection for you. Hence there are zero issues with vaginal sex and you giving her oral. Kissing and you receiving oral sex are the feasible transmission possibilities. Perhaps the second is of minor concern, but your choice. If you decide you're never going to kiss a girl because she has HSV-1 orally then that will be your loss. Most girls have HSV-1 and all the cute ones!

      I disagree, we have made a significant contribution to keeping it on track and ensuring the OP has the correct information to cogitate upon. Let's keep the good work up!
