Is this really good enough?

Recommended Posts

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.

      yes, get IGG testing ASAP, but be prepared for it to come back negative this first time if it is your first infection. A swab would be better if you have fresh blisters.  If they are already healed, and if its your first infection, be prepared for another subsequent OB (I'm sorry to tell you) coming soon after the first.. You can get swabbed at that one then.  Stay strong.  Support your immune system. Get rest. Take Vit. C and some other herbals might be nice...I have posted some stuff about that in the past. collodial silver gel or spray perhaps too directly on sores hugs to you

      No, no Custer. I pop it and it comes back. Thanks you so much for responding.

      @Franky26 your vows include "from this day forth" - there is no fine print that grants you annulment for previous actions and certainly not for the random assortment of herpes viruses that every person walks down the aisle with. To the extent that it was required (and I do not believe it is, although this is not relevant) your partner has been forgiven in the eyes of the Lord for all her past actions; as part of your marriage vows you are joined in that forgiveness. That blood test is notorious for false positives, Having an oral HSV-1 cold sore infection is a known risk factor for a false positive. So yes I do recommend obtaining a further ELISA test. You may even try to obtain the Westernblot from University of Washington for the definitive word on the subject.

      It is pretty definite he has HSV-2 so at least you will be concordant in that respect with no fears of passing it to him. Yes, there is a good possibility of some outbreaks within the first few months, however, this will not be a sign of your longer term experience which should improve tremendously.

      Hey @WilsoInAus   Thank you for your reply, we live in north America, she did the test here in Canada, I will attach a copy of the test below. I understand your point of view but its hard for me to cope with this. I never thought this would happen to me which I m sure most people feel the same.  yes I did took vows for better or worst but I feel those vows are for whatever happens after marriage not because of something happened in the past.  i feel like this is something that is going to remind me of her past for the rest of my life. its not easy for me to look past that.
