Thank you for sharing your story.
Shame and judgement are the worst. This diagnosis impacted my own depression, as well. All I can tell you, is that life gets better. I got this several years ago. If there is anything I can tell myself, years ago, it would be to not feel so bad about myself. This virus is such a…
Thank you for sharing your story.
That's a really tough situation. I'm sorry.
Thank you! That's what I meant. Disclosing really is a guessing game, as to who will judge you, and who will not. That's my game of Russian roulette.
Thank you for all of the compliment!
Thank you for writing this comment!
My whole intent was to share my story, so that others that have the virus won't feel so bad!
I hear you. You're right about gonorrhea too, but as of now, it's still under the "curable" bracket. Regardless, that can be treated with medication, too.
Treatable is not curable.
Treatable means there is medication to manage it. HIV and herpes BOTH have medication that you can take to manage and control symptoms, while leading a healthy life.
Listen, internet herpes, I take my internet valtrex every day. You're not supposed to be here.
Go flare up on someone else's posts.
In fact, you're rather like herpes! Showing, flaring up, being oozy, ugly, and you're attempting to be rather painful....
But like HSV-2, or HSV-1, you're innocuous and not a big deal at all.
Go lurk in a nerve somewhere. I wish I could prescribe GT valtrex to get rid of you.
I mentioned in this post that the SOLE REASON why there is shame towards this disease in this country is because of the pharmaceutical companies.
Again, if just one person reads this, and sees that life goes on, that it isn't a big deal, that things get better, that herpes is just one small insignificant part of who…
No, I would have fucked a guy who had it. I just wouldn't have rawdogged it, unless we were married and trying for children, as a precaution to keep myself safe. I got this from rawdogging, but I was told by the man I was sleeping with that he had a clean STI test. I was with him, and only him, for two years. I got…
It's a metaphor.
Like wings being stripped away.
Do you know what a metaphor is?
Have you ever been rejected by this? The shame of this disease was so great, that I tried to kill myself after being diagnosed.
If just one person reads this, and sees that life goes on, that it isn't a big deal, that things get better,…
What's it like being a jerk on the internet?
Does it give you pleasure?
Also, if you read the post, I said that men without herpes have fucked me as well. Not only dudes with it. Because I got it going on, my troll friend!
Alright troll, I'll bite.
Listen. I listed numerous statistics in this article discussing how common this virus is. I explained how pharmaceutical companies made this country view this virus the way it does.
The Russian Roulette comparison, if you read, was in regards to the panic that comes with being honest with…
I take an anti-viral every day, and love coconut milk.
Yes, it's 1% with condom use, 2% without condom use, if you're taking the anti-viral.
Those numbers jump significantly if the male partner is infected and the female is not.
I think that you should always disclose your status with your partner before sleeping with them. It's their sexual health too, and they should be able to make their own decisions regarding it.
There is; but I don't think that this is helpful. It only creates a further divide.
Herpes is so common, and so innocuous, that websites like that shouldn't matter.
All STI's are treatable.
Thanks for this comment. It's wonderful!
Thanks for the dating compliment. As for Evan: he most certainly IS a fuckwad.
