Please Read These Powerful Stories of People with Herpes

Recommended Posts

SupermansJustice

Hello all. I wanted to share some stories with everyone here so that everyone understands they are not alone in this. I made a petition recently to raise awareness about herpes. It's steadily gaining a lot of support on social media. The MOST powerful thing is reading the stories of people who have been diagnosed. It is heartbreaking to read, but it's also the experience everyone needs to see. People need to understand that the STIGMA is the WORST part of this disease.

If you decide you want to sign the petition (AFTER reading it over), please know that 

PLEASE READ BEFORE SIGNING PETITION:

Please know that you do not need to sign the petition with your real name or e-mail address. Please protect your privacy. Your name is NOT what we need. It is your support that matters. If you do decide to use your real name and e-mail address, please note that if you comment (your name and location will be revealed). If you sign but do not comment, neither the petition creator nor anyone else who signs the petition can see it. However, the petition is on change.org. Please know what you are comfortable with. I wish people wouldn’t cast judgement for supporting a good cause, but that’s the aim of this petition. We aim to change how this condition is perceived. You can absolutely lend your support using a different name and different e-mail address. There is no need or obligation to reveal your true identity. If you have already signed and commented, please feel free to remove it and sign in with your alternate name. Please hang onto your new e-mail for when we post updates! Your help is essential!

      @MikeHerp what? That’s the article you put up in response? Thats fraudulent and we all demand an apology. You cannot go around saying that half of people with HIV have it because they have HSV? Jesus Lord man, you need to pull it together, I thought you actually had some evidence. But no you’ve just got paranoia. You simply like to use fear to spread your message. Also HSV is not the major cofactor in HIV infections. Chlamydia and Gonorrhea are much, much stronger cofactors than HSV, multiple times so. But why let these simple facts get in the way of a bit of propaganda! Maybe we should all direct our funds to eliminating chlamydia according to your logic?!? Also you have not corrected your posts around FHC and viral research. Please do it quickly before you destroy any credibility in the article if it hadn’t already.

      Yes it is, did you actually read the thread and their other posts? Regardless this is a real life test.  The OP is ready to commit suicide if he has herpes impacting his anus. Based on negative swabs, negative PCR tests and the fact that herpes may not even be able to cause theses symptoms - are you prepared to make the call that he has genital herpes and it is causing the symptoms? Or is there room to doubt? Time to man up.

      And he eventually realised that his HSV-1 was oral and the redness from another cause went away. It is doubtful that anyone’s redness in that article was due to herpes, even those who have actually tested positive. This is a great lesson for @DJwah as you can see people get obsessed over herpes except those who actually have it.  That leads to the Henry Ford saying. Whether you think you have herpes, or whether you think you don’t, you’re right!

      @DJwah, here is a forum where someone says they have redness in the glans and they are also HSV1 positive  https://patient.info/forums/discuss/herpes-2-igg-test-3-1-569144
