Canadian / Hsv2 feeling down.

Recommended Posts

Matjik

Hello I'm a 34 year old single father who is diagnosed with hsv2. The stigma is crazy and I haven't dated for sometime. I'm sick and tired of feeling lonely and untouchable. The first person I disclosed it too said I was "f#+!ed for life" so I have a hard time talking to people about it. I just wanted to reach out. I mean it's more of a nuisance than anything right ? 

 

Trying to keep positive...

Only the nuisance you let it be in some respects.

Your diagnosis seems a little surprising? How did it come about?

I was passing out on my bed after having some drinks with an old friend. I woke up to her about to give me oral sex.  I later on proceeded to cuddle naked with her and fall asleep. I guess there was skin to skin contact and I contracted it.

Understand, but how were you diagnosed?

Wow! Some told you that you were F'd for life?! Wonder if that person was certain of their own hsv status. Ignorance seems like bliss...but not always the case. 

Yes...it is a nuisance. Maybe only even in the sense of disclosure. Some people never have OB's. 

I get not wanting to talk about it. There are people in my life I would not tell. But I have opened up to my closest family and friends. I've told them what I am dealing with, presented the facts and advised them to go for complete std panels themselves. There are ones so much worse than this. Do not be ashamed....you have not done anything wrong.

      If you workout too much it causes stress to the body and will cause a breakout. I would not know what the magic number is. Your body will tell you.  Mine does. I first learned about this from Holtorf medical Group. When you ate in the gym those powder mixes they have contain a lot of Arginine. I was amazed by the labels. I would think one could get a really great workout within an hour? When your immune system is in action your doc will tell you not to work out.( A bad cold)

      Im totally in on this, but lets face it.  It will never happen, unless Honeycomb takes ownership and starts The Honeycomb Foundation or something.  Im actually surprised its not already done. I would donate without blinking.  @StayingUpbeat Is that on HC's agenda?  Just think about the day it would reach the masses, and the media. The money would have flowed in.

      I don't remember any cold sores I had  How about the marks ?

      Popping seems to speed things up when I apply the oil after popping.
