Hello From Southeast Ga.

Recommended Posts


I was diagnosed with Herpes about 6 months ago, even though it took me a while to find these forums. It took me a couple of weeks but i cam to grips with it on my own, mainly because i didn't know who to try and talk to about it, and i still have no idea who i contracted it from. At that time i wasn't in a monogomous relationship and had several partners. I went through the normal stages of feeling horrible about myself, and thinking that my life was over, but i realized that that is so far from the truth.

These days, i'm in a commited relationship with a great girl who knows all about it, and knew all about it before we ever slept together. We take as many precautions as is humanly possible, and life is good. What more can a man ask for?

I'm still reading through all of the forums here, and seeing some of the problems others here have gone through, as well as gaining a wealth of new knowledge from the other posts here, and i just wanted to say hello and let you knows know i'm truly impressed with the forums and am here to stay.

Well hi there, welcome to the greatest H forum on the net! (IMO of course). Glad you have found us and we hope we can help you as well as you help others on here. It is nice to have someone in a committed relationship with a girl who doesn't have it. I am in a committed relationship with a guy who doesn't have it. So we can help others who don't think it's possible to ever find love again!

:) Thanks for posting.

You guys give me hope

Although I am older and will not have an easy time getting ANY date. To me, herpes was just one more reason for me to be rejected. It's been very discouraging. But I love to read or hear about people who do find love. I know it is possible, even if a long shot for me. I have come to the conclusion that giving up on love and accepting loneliness is just not natural and proper to the human conditon. I lived that way for too long. It is hard to put myself out there but I want to live my life like a human being instead of a bat in a cave. So I am out there socializing again for the first time in years. You guys make me think I just might have a chance after all.:)

I'm glad we give you hope Brainyblonde, because truly it doesn't matter what age we are, everyone wants someone to share with, whether it be a lifelong thing or something to spend some time for a while. I'm glad to see you are being a social person again, and I'm sure that when the time is right -- you'll see -- you'll be dating again! :D

      @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.
