It's Been a While

Recommended Posts


Hey everybody, I know that it has been a while since my last post. Everything has been ok and I'm hoping the same for everyone else. The whole having herpes thing hasn't really bothered me as much as before. It comes into mind when I come across someone that I might wanna get to know and I haven't had any outbreaks. I met a guy a few weeks ago and I had to tell him that I had herpes because it was killing me inside. We were talkign about doing so many things and I just didn't feel comfortable getting to know him if he didn't know. I felt like I was holding on to this deep dark secret. I never really wanted to tell him but I'm glad that I told him now instead of waiting until later. He didn't really know much about it. He hasn't totally started to play me shaddy but I can see it coming (or maybe he needs a moment to let it sink in) but he did say that we could be friends. I am hoping that I can talk to him about it a bit more and than in the end we can go towards something more but I won't put money on it. And I'm trying to think negative it's just that we went from him txting me everyday to him only responding to my txt messages.

But on another note I'm still not taking any medication. My doctor said she would give anything unless I started having more OB's. But I've been

cool. I'm also trying to learn the difference between the two. I didn't know that the genital area could be diagnosed as type I or II, I just thought that it was an automatic type II. But I'm learning. Things will get better for all of us and we will all live happily ever after. Thanks to all of you for your responses to my post.

Hi nshock,

When I saw you online it occurred to me that I haven't seen you in quite some time. Thank you for letting us know how things are going. You did the right thing and I'm hoping the best for you and I'm happy to hear that you are doing much better than in the beginning.

Keep us posted girl.

      PesPes, there is no cure. You can treat symptoms and try to prevent outbreaks, but you will always have the virus and be able to pass it along. There is NO CURE at this point.

      Based on the sheet below, it would be around 10% per year without condoms with no active outbreaks. With condoms, 5.2% and condoms and antiviral therapy combined around 1.5-2.5%  https://herpesopportunity.com/downloads/herpes-opportunity-disclosure-handout.pdf

      So is there anyone that has tried this for which Valtrex/Acyclovir/Famvir doesn't work and have constant symptoms and problems?   It's expensive but if like 1 pill a week would work it would be worth it.....Trying to figure out if this works for people that the current AV's don't...

      Hi just wanted to share someone I found on Youtube who I think gives really good and honest herpes advice. She is an STD life coach who has had genital herpes for 9 years: https://m.youtube.com/channel/UC8AkCfC9_bcCvI7-sixkLJg/videos   Also check out Ella Dawson if you haven't yet seen her videos or website. Cheers:)
