Is this really good enough?

Recommended Posts

Miss Horne

I read somewhere that a million Americans will be diagnosed with this virus each year. What are we suppose to tell these people exactly? Sorry we might have a slightly better antiviral available to you in the future but other than that there’s nothing we can do to help you, you’ll just have to suffer?

New treatments will take decades to get to the market. Is it ok for this virus to destroy our bodies until that point comes, if it comes at all?

My American friends you live in the most powerful country in the world. I urge you to please take action in anyway you can. Please  let’s try and get more research into treating and eradicating this virus as quickly as possible.  

We all know it’s not just a skin condition, we suffer everyday and the treatment available to us is simply not good enough. We shouldn’t have to suffer so much in this day and age, it’s not acceptable.

This group needs a spokesperson and we need to start making some real changes.

No it is not good enough. There needs to be much more attention given to herpes sufferers. Just because is isn't fatal in most cases doesn't mean it's not life threatening/altering. I wonder how many people kill themselves because of this disease every year? Even if the physical symptoms aren't a constant problem, the mental toll it takes can be overwhelming. I know I can't stop thinking about it and I'm in a relationship with the woman that gave this to me. I guess what bothers me the most is that I truly believe that if the propper funding were allocated to resurch for a cure we would have one. Instead our government spends 10 billion dollars on a fighter jet program that will be obsolete in 10 years. If only we could decide what out tax money gets spent on and not some con artist in a suit. We should push for political representation and demand the herpes epademic be taken more seriously to end people's suffering once and for all.

      Awesome. If all goes well when might this realistically be available for purchase?

      Dude, you just got severely censured by Mods for denying the link between HSV and HIV and spreading dangerous misinformation.  This isn't the right time to begin spouting off your crackpot theories again.

      I have no real idea why it says positive, something to do with the IgM - I’m not sure. I chose my words carefully though, this does show you do not have genital herpes. Why? Because HSV-2 testing is very accurate especially for recent infections. So is HSV-1. However HSV-1 can produce flaky results if you’ve had the virus a long time. If this is you then you may have an oral HSV-1 infection from childhood.

      Hey Wilson! Thank for responding yet again to me! What are your thoughts on the line that says ‘Herpes Simplex Virus 1     Positive’?? this doesn’t state IgG - it just says I’m positive for HSV1?
    • WilsoInAus
      Hey @Roxanne11 those results are quite clear for IgG. Being negative you can be highly confident you do not have either type genitally.
