Anyone from Tennessee/Mississippi

Recommended Posts


I live right across the Mississippi border but work in Tennessee. I would love some support from my area and I would also offer support. I know I am not alone. I am a single mother who is very private. Out of the two men I dated over 20 years, one being my husband, Im not sure how this happened. Its has been an emotional rollercoaster since we divorce, then I found out. Talking really helps. I just learned this in November so this is brand new. If you need support like i do, lets chat. We can make it through this together.

hi tryinghard!

i too live in northern mississippi and work in memphis! it was so nice to see someone else in this area.

okay, so july 7, 2009 i got the dreaded news that my last partner was diagnosed with herpes. my heart fell. i felt so sick. i didn't know what to do. so my story is really messed up. i have only been with two people. ugh. okay, so i have been with this guy for about 4 years. then things got bad, and we broke up. i then out of frustration slept with one of my "good friends". then a few weeks after that i got back with my boyfriend of 4 years. well the guy friend is the one who gave me herpes.

i haven't had this confirmed by a doctor yet, but i had the signs.

and sadly today i just noticed that i have a few smooth bumps around my panty line area. i am so devestated. i thought there was a slight chance i was okay considering me and that guy were together back in may. i didn't realize it takes this long for there to be an initial outbreak.

and now i am so freaked out i gave it to the person i really love.

will he leave me?

sorry for ranting. i am just losing my mind!

i really need a friend and someone i can confide in and share experiences with.

i feel so alone. i need a hug:(

It doesnt always take that long to have an outbreak.

I contracted it on a wednesday and i had my first outbreak

on friday in the same week.

I was just diagnosed yesterday so i'm looking for people to talk to about it.

It seems like everyone is so far away, like no one around where i live has it..but thats not true..

      No Western Blot. High positives with both IgG & IgM tests plus symptoms .

      I doubt it is HSV. I agree with them. If anything I would look at other STDs for throat symptoms. Make sure you are clear from everything

      I went to see clinic and she said they only take a swab if I have blisters. She was very dismissive of everything I said - I heard somewhere that GPS don’t do blood tests anymore for herpes cause it was causing significant mental health problems due to being incurable  I’m ambivalent about blood tests as they don’t seem accurate and whatever answer I get there’s still a part of me that will be unsure and will fuel anxiety   i thought it was difficult to get genital herpes in throat?But the flu like symptoms afterwards was nothing I’ve experienced before and happened the day after. Would this be as serious as genital herpes ?    I just find it hard to sit and wait for any bump on my vagina and it’s all I can think about
