Hello

I was diagnosed in september and I felt horrible when the doc broke the news to me. It has taken all of my strength to cope with this and move on.

I had to tell my partner who has quit talking to me altogether. I don't know anyone else personally with this disease so I have no one to talk to about it.

I am sorry for the bad times in these past two months for you. There are many people who don't understand, including your partner.

Here, in this forum, there are many who do. Already, after a week of being active in this forum, I feel much unloading off of my shoulders.

I hope it does the same for you. In fact, I know it will, as much as you let it.

Best Regards and talk to you again soon.

Oh... if you know more people than you can count on one hand, I'm sure you know someone else personally who has it, you just don't know they do. And you have lots of people to talk to about it right here. We've all been down that road you're on, and trust me, there isn't anything you can't say or ask here. We're not shy. Don't you be, either.

As for your partner, not talking to you is a pretty chickenshit way to avoid dealing with the issue, but it should tell you that when the going got rough, they'd be gone anyway. This little virus does seem to separate the wheat from the chaff, so to speak, when it comes to love interests. Is that a completely bad thing? I don't think so.

Anyway, welcome, HondaL3vr. I hope you find what you need here.

      @Talx2520 based on what you say, Im not sure the odds exceed 50/50 that you have genital herpes. If you take a random genital infection from vaginal sex then about 95% of the time it’s HSV-2. How long after the episode was the blood test?

      Thanks for the response! My first suspected outbreak was definitely painful. Started with what felt like a UTI, then noticed what looked like ulcers starting 1.5 days after unprotected sex. Never scabbed over, but I had a horrible itch that lasted 2  weeks (didn't feel like yeast). Given my symptoms, I've pretty sure its genital herpes, but I mean it could have been some allergy (I had extremely rough intercourse in the middle of the wilderness, sorry if that is tmi lol and maybe naive of me to think it was a weird plant). Both my mom, sister, and grandma get coldsores and I feel like i've totally shared drinks with them even during their outbreaks. Can't remember if I ever had one though. I am not totally sure how I should go about disclosing in general. Should I mention I had a full panel and hsv-1 came up positive and that I am not sure where it is? I really wish I had just gotten it swabbed, but couldn't afford it without insurance at the time. I was under the impression that if it was herpes, it would come back and I could get it swabbed, but I realize now that with HSV-1 that isnt always the case.

      @viralfrog given your symptoms do not react to any known antiviral doesn thatvsuggest these are not herpes lesion?  Lets apply Occam’s razor here.

      @Lulupazoola I have tried with a straw but it's difficult to create enough suction if the straw is deep enough in your throat  After drinking 6g from a shotglass I immediately drink a glass of water to dilute it down the throat.  Little update: blisters, redness and lethargy are back today. I'm still off the antivirals completely and my outbreaks are not any worse than usual for now. That's interesting, it seems I don't react at all to Acyclovir.

      Technically speaking, someone with a strong immune system could have a mild initial outbreak. Normally, they would remain mild and decrease over time. However, if you put yourself in a situation later that gives a big hit to your immune system (e.g. binge drinking, other illness, no sleep etc.) you could have a bigger outbreak as a result.
