    10 years ago it was a swab. But I rarely have any symptoms so I was, on some level, in denial. So about a month ago, I decided, once insurance was reinstated, to get blood test because I have met an awesome guy, not perfect but perfect for me. So results, came back, 4.85 for HSV 2. Numbers are low but Idk what it really means. I'm down because I' going to have to let him know and Ik it will end out relationship. S fear is strong right now. Plus I also wonder is it possible that I have given it to him. Since coming to terms and researching, I have come to see it is really common and I'm not in fear of it, per se, but in fear of telling anyone. Ik people with it as well as HSV 1, which bothers me that the same stigma is not applied. I did date one person who knew and he was concerned about it but we always used protection. Funny part about it is that he HSV 1, I would go to the store to get otc medication when he felt it coming and I never once pointed it out to him that it is the same thing. To this day we are friends. I didn't realize how many have it and it's shocking. Just worried about telling that's all.

    Hang in there.  Lillian has had a good experience w it.  I think Lisajd, too.  Listen to them.  God's honest truth is, we all get rejected for shit.  Sometimes it isnt herpes related at all.  I personally dont want hsv2 risk but lots of folks dont care

    So what do the numbers mean? 4.85? as I have read that someone is 24, I don't understand what that means. So you don't have HSV2. you have 1? I've lived in fear of rejection all my life due to past sexual trauma. I don't think I would care myself as I would research it but Ik he will not want to be with me anymore and I'm terrified of it bc  I have never had such a great relationship with anyone.
