Hi and welcome to the site what you were going through is pretty normal for most people and you'll get a lot of support and advice from this site.  What is really important to remember is that having oral herpes is very common and hsv1 is lower risk so in terms of sexual partners you do have an advantage there other people with HSV 2.   the best thing you can do is educate yourself so you understand the risks and precautions and really you can lead a normal life

i dont get them often , not even once a year. But i am trying to change my  diet, i dont drink much at all, i would give that up completely if i had to. Just not coffee lol. Alcohol wouldnt be a problem. He needs to quit smoking cigarettes and i told him that will have an negative impact on his health and every organ and part of his body. Just stinks, big big time.

he also said things  probably would have been fine if it wasnt for this. i told him it still can be and we can take it slow. no need to rush anything. the worst before doing antying physically or sexually is just losing some time. we talked a lot openly. hes been really good about it and i know he hurts over this too. i just wish he would see that im worth a shot even just to get to know each other better for a while.

Look what matters is his health and only he knows how he has suffered through his issues with that and you have to understand that he would want to put that first

      Do you shop at Amazon.com? Next time you shop, you can also automatically donate a portion of the proceeds to the Colorado Alphaherpesvirus Latency Society.  This Society organizes the symposium on latency of herpes viruses.  It was here that Keith Jerome announced that he had edited almost 20%-30% of latent HSV in mice last year. (http://www.ucdenver.edu/academics/colleges/medicalschool/departments/neurology/CALS/Documents/2018 CALS abstracts.pdf) You have to go through smile.amazon.com to set up ongoing donations whenever you shop through smile.amazon.com. ____________________________________________________________________________________________ Yes, I understand that I must always start at smile.amazon.com to support Colorado Alphaherpesvirus Latency Society. Why is there a separate URL? The AmazonSmile program offers customers a new benefit, making a donation to your favorite charity. We're able to provide this benefit to you when you choose to start your shopping at smile.amazon.com in part because we expect AmazonSmile to grow primarily through word of mouth instead of paid advertising—and this enables us to fund donations to our customers’ favorite organizations.

      WOW, it's true.  So cool!  Thanks for sharing. In my view, for the time being, we can just help support the Colorado Alphaherpesvirus Latency Society, rather than asking Fred Hutch to set something up through Amazon.   Here is an important message though, you have to go through smile.amazon.com to do the donation. According to them:     Yes, I understand that I must always start at smile.amazon.com to support Colorado Alphaherpesvirus Latency Society. Why is there a separate URL?
