Feeling lost

Recommended Posts

Concrete_Rose

I was diagnosed with herpes a few years ago after I was raped. I was married at the time and my husband blamed me. It was a very abusive relationship but I away and have made a new life for myself.  I got close to someone recently who I felt was the one for me and we were really close...until I told him I carry the herpes virus, and he said he just wants to be friends. This man has totally knocked my confidence and I feel like no one will ever want me again. I feel less of a woman and I don't feel like I have the right to talk to men in any way flirtatiously because I feel like a fraud. I've changed how I dress and it hurts to even hear a song about sex because I feel like my sex life is over. The worst thing is that I rarely have symptoms and when I do they are so mild I hardly notice them. I have just ended up on this site after googling support because I feel so broken by this and I don't know where to turn to.

Hi. I just signed up a few minutes ago and I have to let you know that you're not the only one who feels that way. What I'm trying to say is that I don't have a sex life. The one thing that makes me feel good and pretty is that I flirt with the guys at work. If tjey knew I had herpes they probably wouldn't even look at me. There is someone out there for you, just don't give up. I've told 4 guys about my disease and 2 of them still wanted to have sex with me. They were horny but they knew the risk. Make sure the person you tell doesn't blab your business to anyone though. I'm thinking about telling this guy at work but I'm thinking he might not like me anymore.

      More confusion! So the results have come back for both of the partners that I've been with over the last 3-4 years and they are both negative for type 1 and type 2. Where do I go next? Any advice?

      please look through the forum in exact and careful detail and inform yourself of less than usual circumstances to cover yourself.

      auto inoculation is rare and it can happen. off objects is debated but some people claim it happens. some people have experienced it happens easily.

      so you know practice good hygiene. i personal think use a heated towel rail and make sure your towels are fully hot and dry. there were studies in the 80's showing it can live on towels for 75 hours. The herpes association say most experts agree it cannot be caught off a towel. That is most experts not all. Some people end up with it on their body and one has to wonder how? Towels I would guess.

      Things that tend to stay kinda wet or so on. cups are another one that fit that i think.

      I remember being at university once and being in the bathroom while a girl was on the phone to her friend.She thought she had a bite on her face but clear to me someone with herpes had kissed her on the cheek recently, it didnt look typical just her skin peeling. 

      I am not an expert though or a doctor so do your own research.

      Update: The creme that contains the tetrapodal zinc oxide still isn't available at Gorch Fock Apotheke Kiel. I called them today: same status as last year and they have no further information on when and if it will be available again.

      Lilian, the zinc acetate we are talking about here is different from the tetrapodal zinc oxide that you are mentioning. But thanks for the reminder. The ointment that contains the tetrapodal zinc oxide still isn't available at Gorch Fock Apotheke Kiel. I called them today: same status as last year and they have no further information on when and if it will be available again.

      I've had neg swabs but I am sure you'll get it. Follow the process. I haven't read the thread in exact detail, but if you have documentation of doctors mishandling your case when you get/ if you get a poss inform them in writing as well as the medical board I think.  Under diagnosis is as problematic as false pos and reducing transmission is good.
