I found out on friday, June 2

Recommended Posts

I'm still in shock. I feel alone, ashamed and really disappointed in myself. I don't want to ever tell my best friend because I feel that she would judge me and she would never let me kiss her children ever again.  And how will I ever date again? There are so many things running in my head along with the pain of my first outbreak. Thats how I found out I had it. On Friday, June 2. I never wish this pain on my worst enemy. I sit and type this with an ice pack in my crotch area, along with generic valtrex in my system. I still can't believe I have it. I just pray that I don't have another outbreak like this. The discomfort is unreal. It is so unreal. I dread using the restroom. I pray (and I'm not a religious person) that this is the last time I ever have to go through this. Please tell me that it will be okay and this is phase 1 of the grieving process. I guess it really could be worse. Thanks to all who read my post and for the support.

What you are feeling and what you are thinking is what everybody goes through and the best way to help yourself is actually to educate yourself about the virus so you understand about how you can just manage your outbreaks but also understand how contagious it actually is and what you can do to reduce the risk of transmission.  Everyone worries about dating and that they will be judged but the reality is it is just cold sores in a different location.  Some people do have a harder time with different symptoms and ongoing symptoms and some people affected more mentally because of it and also because of the stigma but it is also about your attitude towards it that makes you be better able to live a normal life.  If you don't have a lot of symptoms there's no reason why your life should change.  There is also no reason why you should be ashamed and disappointed in yourself because it can easily happen even with someone who takes precautions

Hi it's gonna be tough 2-3 months of emotional pain, then you are a new species called Herpman with genetic DNA modification ..wow. Just accept it as natural evolution, I think we shouldn't try hard to be human again. That's where we are failing and undergoing trauma .. rather simply accept the evolution to Herpman and no more stress. 

Welcome to the new genesis where you have to power to scare humans. Use it as a weapon not as a weakness, Let's rule the Humans.

Welcome to HC. I'm so sorry that you're going through this, it does get better! As for the situation with your friend, I was very much in the same position. I only have a couple of close friends and all of them have young children.. I decided to tell them all, I was supported with love and acceptance. Even though in my head each time I was around them I thought that all they could think about was my H and me touching their children so much it would drive me crazy and I'd have to leave.. In the end I spoke to them and they know that it can only be transmitted through skin to skin contact and well unless I'm having sex with them then I can't transmit it to anyone. If anything the only way it crosses their minds is if someone is sick in their family as they don't want me to contract it and get an ob on top of it.. 

I hope you can find peace, and as for support we're a great bunch here! Jump into the chat room, there's usually a couple of people in there at any time.. You're more than welcome to contact me! Wishing you all the best!

      Hey hi202020, the Varivax vaccine definitely removed the neuralgia for me, at least so far (fingers crossed). My signs of HSV1 infection after the blood test came back positive in December (with a high IGG of over 55) were: horrible flu symptoms initially (in February) with swollen lymph nodes, followed by almost non-stop, super painful genital neuralgia, and one oral outbreak in March. However, the neuralgia has completely disappeared since the end of April (about a month or so). I had the first vaccine on April 10 and the booster shot on May 19, so about a week ago.

      Hey Mackie I have the same neuralgia that you do, did you find anything that helped you? Did you try any vaccines? I’m feeling desperate as I’ve had non stop neuralgia/pain for 4+ months after contracting GHSV-1.

      Got my igG results after 13 months and it is negative I think I need to put this behind and may be rhink do some shitty infection that is causing this itching in genitals and on face. Just an FYI my Western blot at 7 months post exposure is negative.

      Exactly. Plus some people don't seroconvert ever or for a long time, so it's even larger than that.  Also, it takes longer for hsv. To show up on wb than on a commercial igg test.

      Even Terri says that sensitivity of WB for hsv1 is 95-96%. So somebody has to be in this 4-5%...
