Re: Lonely with herpes
Hi, I have had hvs2 since 1987, back then it seemed that everybody had it. Anyway, in the beginning I had two small outbreaks but the virus has been in hibernation for 25 years now, have had many relationships and have not infected anyone. That is pretty much how it goes, just like hsv1 or cold sore you do not kiss anyone or have oral sex when the blister is there but after the blister goes away into hibernation, you just forget about it. If you have hsv2 blisters they will go away and when they go into hibernation you will not infect anyone. HVS2 has not changed my life one bit but lots of people freak out for no reason. The young man who left you really had no reason to leave you like that but you should be commended for telling him. It is very much possible he will encounter the virus in his life as 25% of all women have the virus. If you take the suppliment Lysine it helps to suppress the virus and diminish outbreaks. Do not let this diminish your self esteem because there are just too many people who have it.Now if you had HIV I could understand these feelings you have but in my book having herpes is really no big deal.
