Need to not feel alone anymore

Recommended Posts

TM90

So I'm new to this site and have never been part of a support group but I was diagnosed with HSV2 almost 2 years ago now and it seems the longer I have it the less I can cope with it. I feel so incredibly alone, I feel like all my dreams and desires  to get married and have kids have been ruined and I just look at myself with so much contempt and disgust because I did this to myself. I used to have a spark and so much joy but the more I have to deal with this the more harder im finding it to keep that spark and joy. I've thought about ending it all coz I just don't know if I have the strength to live with this or face  rejection because of it but I love my family and friends to much to do that so I just feel so trapped, isolated and alone in this world. Can someone please offer me some hope- that my dreams could still happen that someone could love me and accept me? Sorry to be so morbid- I talk to my mum and one friend but they just don't understand.

I know hard it is to deal with this virus. The physical, emotionally and psychological impact it can have. You have to realize your self worth. You are still that beautiful person you were before you were infected. There are many people who can accept that you have HSV2 and when educated on the risks and precautions they will still chose to be with you. My best friend was married to a woman for 7 years who was HSV2 pos and he never got infected and didnt use condoms. So if you use suppresive therapy and condoms the risks will be very low. There are many people here who have happy lives and have learned to work around this thing. Im still learning but if you are otherwise healthy you should be just fine. Some of us have complications from the virus but we are the minority. The other thing is that there are plenty of lonely guys who have this too.  So a good chance you could meet you mate and he will have it too. If you believe you are going to be okay then you will be. If you believe you wil fail then you will. Its about state of mind and how you view things.

Dont let this ruin your life. We all have been dealt a tough hand but we still can win.

Hang in there your are not alone and you're going to be okay.

Thank you so much for your encouragement and truth. I know a lot of it is a battle in the mind and I think last night I got a bit defeated. But today is a new day and like you said if I believe I'm going to be ok then I will be. Thank you again for your encouragement. It means a lot.

      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%...
