I have had herpes for 24 years. It is the first time with a support group.

I found this site by accident. I started dating again and had to give "the talk" to the man I was seeing. It is easier to disclose that I have herpes now than when I was younger but it is never easy to deal with the emotions attached to the disclosure. My family and close friends know I have herpes so I have support that way but I thought the support from others who have it might help.

I should add that I am finding that with my personal experience with having had it for so long, I may have something I can help someone with.

Definately helpful. There are so many people arriving here newly diagnosed who lack hope in having any sort of meaningful future. The more people who can prove the opposite, the better.

It's definitely not the end of the world. It is a lifestyle adaptation really. If I can help anyone here, I am open to do so. It helps put things in perspective for ourselves when we are helping others so it's win-win.

      @srinivas thank you for the suggestion. Are you on antivirals? How long have you had HSV? How well do you feel now that you are taking the supplements?

      It doesnt really mean much yet. They still dont know if the herpes is taking advantage of a diseased brain or causing the disease. Furthermore, there is evidence that Alzheimer's might be caused by oral spirochete disease and even Lyme. Many of you could have oral Spirochetes but the Lyme and is less likely. https://globallymealliance.org/pathogen-cause-alzheimers-disease/ https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5008232/ https://newsblog.drexel.edu/2016/02/10/do-infections-cause-alzheimers-disease/   Of course it could be both! Maybe having hsv-1 and oral spirochetes quadruples the risk.  In my opinion the spirochete theory sounds more likely and its hard to dismiss neurosurgeons and caretakers getting Alzheimers from a disease that was previously thought to be non contagious. I'd worry more about Spirochetes.

      I wonder if people in the military are tested for hsv, because the general public isn’t. You have to specifically ask for it and many doctors don’t even see the point because it’s “so common”. It’s very possible he has it and has no symptoms or very mild random symptoms. Sorry to hear what you’re dealing with. It seems like women’s symptoms are worse than men’s.

      No that’s not the issue at all. The absolute vast majority of nerve pain is not caused by herpes. Hence it cannot be used to reverse engineer a diagnosis of herpes. That is exceptinally dangerous and we must do all we can encourage proper diagnosis.
