funny side!!

Recommended Posts


i know for a fact before i suffered with depression i would have saw the funny side to this situation. for the ten years previous to the last two years i have sat in a dark room, my head! worried about everthing because of an anxiety attack! and then this came along to make matters worse! i havent had a girl friend for 12 years because of anxiety which causes depression and low self esteem. before this anxiety i was outgoing and funloving involved in everything. then at 17 i had a bad experience and my world fell apart and a dark cloud came. it is only now that i am starting to deal with the anxiety and depression, and as i do i am starting to get my sense of humour back. i know i am not a kid anymore so i have to look at the serious side of the situation. but if i keep on worrying about my herpes and other stuff im not going to move forward and i am going to remain alone and isolated. so what i am trying to say, when you start feeling low about herpes rise above it and see the funny side! hard though it might be its the only way you and me are going to control it and move on.cheer up:p Mark.

Hi somebodys else from the uk, morning :p

Im the King of worrying I really am. Also im the biggest hypocondriac in the world lol. Well tomorrow (or later today) im just about to book myself in for a GH test. To me the result will probably come back positive (im prepared for that). I do try to not let myself get down and when I do the first thing I do is head to the Internet to search for info. Now the internet and hypocondriacs really do not go together and it uaually makes me 1000 times worse.

This time im just going to bite the bullet and deal with whats ahead. If I have GH then its my own fault and Ill deal with it (it isnt life threatening in a physical sense)

The only thing im truly dreading is telling my friends and family (eek)

Hi, Mark!

I have also struggled with depression and, more persistently, anxiety. For years the anxiety really took over my life. I was really in its grips.

Sick of it, I found an excellent counselor and someone very stable and tolerant to love and support me. I am no longer with that guy, but I have great friends and have had new supportive loves and always my awsome counselor. A few years and a lot of hard work later, I am doing so well. I still have attacks now and then, but they are much less frequent (every few days as opposed to daily) and far less intense. You're right, a sense of humor is a great tool when anxiety comes up!

Good luck in your journey toward peace and a bit of sanity. :)

Fellow neurotic,

      When I broke out/ shed it usually was on my backside left side, my  upper crack or back right below the belt! Doggy style is my absolute favorite position which makes him very vulnerable! I think there definitely is an advantage to wearing some sexy clothes or latex! Or even the liquid gloves. I think the biggest problem is that people shave now and they nick and cut themselves! That leads them open for infection on any part of the boxer area!

      I’d build on this to say that the volume of virus is critical. It has been observed that shedding instances where there are 10^7 virions are required for a pragmatic chance to actually get through the skin and it’s natural defences. Most shedding instances are well below this threshold. I’d also suggest that for many asymptomatic transmissions, most of the virus comes to the surface during the sexual act itself. So little point testing beforehand.

      Thank you for sharing that. Very resourceful.

      I wasn't following the conversation closely, but yes, all that matters in terms of being contagious is if the virus makes it to the skin.

      @Cas9 isn't that a "technicality"? From the sound of it this means that on a cellular level there is a daily battle but at the end of the day the virus can't transmit until it is present on the skin... right? I mean the question will still be: how many days is the virus present and transmittable. The mechanism (the technicality) is important but also not important... but I could be wrong, just trying to interpret.
