Having Anything to go wrong with your body is scary, But Herpes takes that fear to a whole nother level.
My partner was giving paper work stating that he was positive for 1 and 2. Told that he has had this for well over 40yrs. First off, How do they know that? How can they tell when he actually contracted this? Second he said that he has never had an outbreak. No cold sore or blister. By the way this was a blood test.
He went to another doctor to ask for a swab. They told him that there was nothing to swab and that he had it and he was just gong to have to live with it.
I went and got a blood test which came back neg. I am not to sure whether to trust it or not because of the time frame in which I took it. Now MY doctor seemed to be annoyed by all of my questions. When I told her that I had been on the internet and read someplace that I could have possibly taken the test too early. She replied "Oh I have never heard anything like that" She shrugged her shoulders and told me "Well if you wanna come back in a month and retest you can but I thing you'll be fine".
I am scared because I am unsure. I sit waiting and wondering. Hoping and praying. I see people come to the boards with so many questions Right after they have just left their DR. (me included) looking for some comfort. Some clarity. SOMETHING!!!!
I feel so sad that the person who looked at you and diagnosed you has less time for you then strangers here on the boards.
Thank You all So Very Much for your time. You personal journeys. Words of wisdom and your comfort. This is very challenging and nobody should have to do it alone. Some of you help us make it through the days and the fear and uncertainty. Thank You. Please keep it up.
