In the Twilight Zone

Recommended Posts


Hello to all,

I have been lurking since early February of this year, when I had what I feel is my first OB. I was in denial for too many days, so missed my chance to get a culture swab. I did not realize I had to insist on being seen while there were some good sores to swab.

I did not want this diagnosis on my medical records, so did not use my company health insurance. I went to Planned Parenthood and paid cash. Although to me, the sores looked and felt like what I expected herpes to be, the dr would not commit to the diagnosis. I tried to save one unopened sore, but she said that I was healing and probably too dry to get a good swab. She did try but then I find out that the clinic sent the swab to the lab in an expired container. The lab rejected the swab without even testing it.

So my chance to find out for sure was lost. They told me to come in immediately when I get my next OB. I have had nothing since that first OB, so it seems that my only recourse is the herpes blood test at 3 months from initial outbreak. Am I correct in my thinking? Do I have any other options to find out if I do have it?

The doctor did test for chlamydia, which was negative. She did find BV, so gave me the antibiotic for it. The BV cleared up with the medicine.

I was really upset at the beginning, but now I am just sad. I realize that it is a virus, and they are tough nuts to crack. I already have a couple autoimmune diseases for life, so this is just another lifelong issue.

I am acting like I have herpes. because I would rather be safe than sorry, but I do feel like I am in the Twilight Zone. It has been 2 months now, and the longer it gets from that time, the less I feel like I have it. I know...it is just wishful thinking on my part.

Thanks for listening and for all the great information and support on this board.

Oh do I know that feeling! I got my results in an std screening. I have never had an ob and don't feel any different that I did before I knew, except that I am paranoid about every itch and twinge now. I have to go back in 2 weeks to get retested and part of me is holding out hope that it will come back negative but I don' t have that good of luck. Get a bloodtest, I think that is the only way you are going to find out unless you have another ob, which I hope you don't. Best of luck and if it does come back + then we are here for you! ~Sasha~

      OK sir, let me explain so even you can understand. When I speak of inaccessibility, I'm referring to the immune system; i.e. In general, the immune system does not enter cells and kill viruses. Further, because the herpes virus resides in the neuronal cells, the immune system wont kill those cells (for obvious reasons) to clear the virus. The end result is that the virus is inaccessible by the immune system and the virus remains for life. My statement is/was accurate.

      Well guys, i had the talk... and it went even worse than I thought. He refused to talk to me in person, so I had to do it through text. He said “well I’ve never had symptoms, so I’m not getting tested. You work in the medical field, you probably paid someone to fabricate those test results to try to trap me into a relationship. I will have no further contact with you” ... and then he blocked me from everything. And THEN less than 24 hours later, messaged my old room mate asking her to come over for a beer and movie night.  HES DISGUSTING!! I was considering taking legal action against him, because with his total lack of sympathy, and the fact that he tried to sleep with my friend less than 24 hours after I told him, I think he knew he had it and just didn’t care... so I messaged his ex on Facebook to see if She knew he had it. She wasn’t sure but she is definitely going to get tested now... she told me he is an extreme narcissist and emotionally manipulates people. ... after doing my research, it all makes sense.    So since hes not sorry, I decided to do some type of revenge. I reported him for fishing without a license, and having a trailer with no tags. I’m not sure if he got cited or not, but the cops definitely investigated... because about an hour after my complaint I got 4 consecutive calls from a blocked number less than a minute apart.... he was angry and trying to reach me.    Im just devastated that he did this to me and doesn’t even care. He lead me to believe he cared about me

      Well you’re nearly there. As you say you can’t patent a natural substance such as vitamin C. Anyone can use it and develop their own product.  Nothing stopping this with your mushroom then!

      @WilsoInAus Another display of ignorance, here’s an example, vitamin c is found in nature, you cannot patent vitamin c, but you can make your own mixture of compounds where vitamin c is the pertinent substance and patent that mixture,  regardles though, the main ingredient is an extracted compound found in nature, or perhaps they synthesized a very close mimicking compound so yes you can patent naturally occurring compounds if you know how to make it original like the example I gave above
