welcome, I know the struggle of disclosing. took me 2 years to tell my brother and another 2 to tell my best friend. Also right after him i finally had the talk with a girl i wanted to datex she wasnt freaked out too much, thank god. It may take some time before you finally get the courage to tell someone, ill say from experience just being able to talk with 1 family member or friend can really improve your life, but do it when you feel ready. You can always just use this site, which i only recently found and will tell you there are so many wonderful people on here willing to help. Stay strong and don't let this depress you, you may feel alone, but your not.

Hi Stace! Welcome aboard! I will say that it really does comfort having someone to talk to about this in person. Hunt around for a local support group and when you're ready - tell a friend or family member that you trust. 

Hope you're doing well - I've known for only a short amount of time and I find the more research on it, the more I feel better. Just know that you're not alone and it's incredibly common :)

 

Good luck!

Hi and welcome.  Some it takes more time but its also about how you view this.  Remember its cold sores just a different location.  Dont assume people will see you differently.  Sometimes its just lack of education that people respond poorly.  If you talk to someone use the word cold sores and go from there.

      @DJwah curious about your results. anything you can share?
    • HerpesOrNot
      Thanks. Did you experience general discomfort when urinating for quite a while after the excruciating part was done, or was it instantly over after the week with antivirals? 
    • HerpesOrNot
      Thanks for the response.  I have been tested for HSV over and over for 5 months (IgM 1 time and IgG over 5 times) and been negative on everything, including a swab of a red rash and of an irritated urethral opening.  My very first symptom of anything was VERY painful urination that lasted about a day or two if I recall, followed a week or so later by a sore throat, chills, night sweats, and fatigue.  Things settled for maybe a few days, then came an extremely itchy anus/rectum with redness for weeks, itchy groin with no redness at all, then eventual red, itchy rash in groin and increase in redness on penile skin with mild itching. Never had a lesion or blister anywhere from what I've seen. Nothing seems to coincide with typical herpes, but herpes isn't always typical from what I've learned. Creams of all kinds from doctors are not helping at all.  I seem to have a new bug no one has ever come across (doubtful), or an atypical case of herpes or something similar.

      No, Sebi was a fraud. This article is an interesting summary. https://www.thebody.com/article/dr-sebi-did-not-cure-hiv-nipsey-hussle-documentary If you’re basing the possibility of ‘cures’ on Sebi, I’ve got a car for sale that’s had one careful lady driver! Its simply fact that of the 40 billion people who have ever had HSV 1/2, not one eradicated it from their body.

      I'm amazed people do not think outside the box and to go to great efforts to reply to me saying "it's not curable" I simply cannot understand. If you truly believe Western Medicine and they say it's not curable then whatever they claim in the future you will live your life with their scientific proof. I simply have posted here to hear from like minded people who are juicing and doing colonics to see what their results are. People who have had cancer have cured it with a alternative lifestyle becoming vegan etc so if cancer is cureable who can't you open your mind and just think could hsv be curable? did you know Dr Sebi was taken to court because he claimed he cured someone with Aids? He turned up with 25 people who he cured of all illnesses and was let off. So please spare me your thought's of "It's not curable" as I will never belive that. Unless you have some experiences with juicing and colonics you wish to share then do not comment on this thread. Will no longer reply to closed minded sad people like yourselves.
