Despair

Guineapiglover

I am pretty sure I am experiencing my first outbreak. Even my doctor had one look and said “looks like herpes” then gave me herpes medications even though I get tested tomorrow . I feel so lost, used, upset and angry. I’m in so much pain as I have really bad sores and going to the bathroom brings tears to my eyes becuase of the pain. I have always considered myself attractive and a good person and now I feel completely worthless and like the decency I’ve had through life and respecting others was for nothing because I get hurt time and time again and this time it’s gone too far. I’m feel like no one will really ever want me now and love is all I have ever desired. I can’t talk about this to my family because it would break their hearts. I don’t know where to go from here

I'm feeling the same.   Get my blood results in 3 hours and my swab results sometime next week probably.   I'm thinking this is the lowest I've ever or could ever feel. I'm so sorry you are going through this too.  Wish this virus never existed.   And I'd been smarter.

I won’t get my results for over a week. I think he’s right and acceptance is the best route for us , there are people living with way worse things OR disabilities Wich affect their lives . So it could be worse

I agree. But I just feel like a completely different person.  I know it could be worse I guess.  But this sure is one thing I never expected or wanted to experience.  I don't know how I can go back to work next week if I'm still feeling like this physically and mentally.  I'm on spring break at the moment.

Allow yourself time to grieve - for as long as is necessary. Turn the experience into leverage into new choices and direction in life. I believe something in the form of better suppression or a cure will come in our lifetimes.

      (For my case: i am not diagnosed herpes. I had genital warts. 
      I can tell her a sex partner was diagnosed with HPV, and i pretty surely have it and that's why i do it with boxer short the next months. Hm.)   https://herpesopportunity.com/downloads/herpes-opportunity-disclosure-handout.pdf https://www.cdc.gov/std/herpes/stdfact-herpes-detailed.htm

      How long after diagnosis did you start to have sex again? How did he get it on the lips?

      Hi,  I was wondering if you could describe your outbreaks or how much time it passed before you where correctly diagnosed. Or your overall experience. I am freaking out and just wearing my underwear feels uncomfortable.  How did they diagnosed you? Thank you in advanced

      I THINK this will benefit us. If the FDA allows more aggressive research in the deadliest virus programs, such as HIV gene editing, then off-targeting and other safety issues might already be solved before Dr. Jerome  starts editing hsv in humans.
