MY First Talk Tomorrow And I Am SOOO Scared

Recommended Posts


So I met this new guy 7 weeks ago after my longterm boyfriend told me I wasn't his one.

My new guy is such a sweetheart and a keeper! He has just been away with his job for the last 10 days and while he's been away I found out I have HSV1.

My ex gave it to me - knew he had it but buried his head in the sand, first I knew was a mild ob.

New guy has text and called everyday telling me how much he misses me can't wait to see me etc.

He's back tomorrow and I have to tell him, I know how hurt I was not being told. As far as HSV is concerned it doesn't from what i read have to be that bigger deal in my life but I am so scared of the talk and I guess ultimately losing this amazing guy.

Any advice xx

I hope your talk goes well. Have you done anything with this new guy that will expose him to the virus? That will probably be harder for him to deal with than just the idea of you having it. You should have him get tested, and until you're both comfortable with it, agree to take it slow. News like this is hard, and he will probably need some time to digest it. Hopefully, if he's as great as you think he is, he'll be more than understanding and this will bring you closer. Let us know how it goes!

      @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.
