Finding it hard to accept this

Recommended Posts


Hi all,

i am new to this and I was diagnosed in June 2017. I got this from my current boyfriend who did not know he had this. I believe he had a small symptom such as a spot but just ignored it and thought it was something else. I still can’t get my head around this and I have my good days but the past few days it’s been eating at me. I just feel like I am not the same anymore. My beauty has been taken from me. I am a over thinker and a worrier and I think what if we don’t work out? I am happy at the moment but I feel like this situation stops me from loving him to my full potential and I try to look past it and then it pops back in my brain.I haven’t spoken to anyone about this and would be grateful for some advise :(

If you don’t work out you will find someone else. You still have your beauty and you will be okay. It’s rough but according to everyone here it tapers off after a while.

      That’s why I’m seeing a specialist who can do that. Not every doctors office have swabs available, so maybe that’s the case here. I’ve called urgent care clinics before to ask if they swab for HSV and many around here said no.

      I doubt this. If the doctor had ANY suspicion that you had herpes around the eye a swab would  have been taken. Gross negligence otherwise. This is totally insulting to the intellect of our readers. Mate, it’s time to leave the delusion behind before you do yourself or anyone else real harm. What do you have to fear by believing you do not have herpes?

      Would you like to call my eye doctor and tell them this? The cornea is fine, but there is damage to the outside of my eye. Damage she has seen in other patients with herpes of the eye. I am not making this stuff up.

      Do you have any photos? Sounds similar to me.

      Hang on that’s not the case. The doctor knows full well those symptoms align potentially to long term HSV-1 infections. You cannot do a swab for eye herpes. The diagnosis involves inspection of the cornea. I am not sure why you feel the need to spread misinformation. Of course you have tested negative for HSV more than three months post possible infection. It is DANGEROUS to both yourself and others to assume your symptoms are herpes related when they may actually be serious. Please reflect upon your need to attempt to erroneously validate other people’s symptoms in order to support a baseless interpretation of your own symptoms.
