I WISH PEOPLE WOULD BE HONEST WITH EACH OTHER AND NOT INFECT INNOCENT PEOPLE. I WAS JUST RECENTLY INFECTED AND A KNOW IT COULD HAVE BEEN PREVENTED. HERPES SHOULDED BE A DIRTY LITTLE SECRET, IF YOU HAVE IT BE HONEST AND TELL YOUR PARTNER SO THEY ARE NOT HARMED. [46656]

I have a rash during an outbreak as well as pain in my leg or my foot or just on my skin itself to the point that I can`t touch my skin or have difficulty walking. Also experience constipation. [46653]

I was just diagnosed with herpes yesterday and honestly I`m really scared. I`ve never been one to sleep around or have lots of partners and I`m not even sure which partner I got it from because I read that it can stay dormant for years. I know I`ll get over the initial shock but I feel dirty and ashamed, like I did something wrong. The sores are really painful and I can`t wait until they finally clear up. This is my first outbreak and I hope I never get another one this bad. I feel like my dating life just ended and I have no chance of being with someone again. I never want to infect anyone else because I dont want another person to go through what I`m dealing with. Its hard, but then again, I only have myself to blame. I didnt use condoms 100% of the time and I`ve had condoms break before. I learned my lesson, but I wish I didnt have to deal with this for the rest of my life. [46649]

I discovered I had herpes when I had my very first outbreak during the last trimester of pregnancy with my second child. My dr seems to think i carried the virus for years and never had an outbreak. I was still able to deliver vaginally but was required to take suppressants through the delivery. My husband has also discovered he has herpes although he has never had a break out. [46641]

I found out I had herpes a year ago. I was devastated like everyone else on here. It hurt to walk, my glands were swollen it was awful. The first thing I did was go online and read all these forums. I took Lysine everyday since my first outbreak out of fear of having another. I haven`t had one yet and it`s been a year. If I get sick I take my valtrex just in case so that I don`t get an ob. So far so good. I spoke with a few friends about it which helped. I actually found out a close friend of mine has it too. So many people have this virus but no one talks about it. I try to stay positive and not let it bring me down but I think we all have our moments of weakness. It`s been a year and I`ve dated one guy that couldn`t accept it. We had sex 5 times in 8 months. He said he loved me but was too afraid of getting it. I can`t blame him I`m just disappointed I wasted 8 months with him lol. When I was younger I never really knew if a guy was dating me for me and not just using me for sex. Well now I will know if they really are into me. [46624]

I am 29 years old. I have always been protective over my body. Fell in love with a married man. When it came time for his divorce he cheated on me. I didnt find out until I had a doctor visit and the results came back that I had herpes and I was pregnant. I sat in that parking lot for hours thinking this is what I deserve for falling for someone else husband. Although they were separated for 5 years it doesnt take away the hurt that I have experienced. We are still together not only for the child but the fact I feel no one will ever want me.I feel dirty and disgusted when he touches me. I am so unhappy that I have gained 30 pounds.And have become so insecure. Every time a man trys to talk to me I try to be as rude as possible so no one can want me. That shows that you can never be to safe even using protection. [46622]

I just discovered late last month I have herpes simplex 1. I didn`t think much of it until I heard my doctor say, "no cure, contagious." I cried for weeks over it and now I`m slowly accepting it happened and nothing I can do about it. The only thing that angers me most is a boyfriend I had for months treated me completely wrong towards the last 2 months and when he found out I had herpes 1 he dumped me basically saying, "sucks for you. I don`t." But he is a carrier due to his mom and he never bothered once to tell me until it was too late. I know it has to come from him, he`s the only one I`d share drinks with or kiss and his sister and mom are diagnosed with it. While he laughs at what I`m going through alone, I worry what other people will think of me when they find out, like friends or a new boyfriend. I can`t touch or drink things or share things like I use to. Now I have to always be so careful with what I do and always worry that I can still get someone I care about infected with this. I`ve already infected 2 family members by accident, possibly 3. I don`t know how to tell between outbreaks if I`m still contagious and if I kiss someone during the time outbreaks are gone; is there still that risk? A lot of my family tells me `a lot of people have it` but I still feel pretty alone in all this and ignorant about the whole thing. It`s still pretty new to me. I even heard from a few people that I`m considered contagious for the next year.. [46614]

I wish people would be educated that condoms are not a guarantee that you won`t get it since the virus can shed on skin not covered by the condom. No one is told this. I contracted it while condoms were used and was devastated thinking I did everything I was supposed to do to have made sure this didn`t happen. And I know way too many people that think oral and genital are completely different. In sex ed courses the oral type should be discussed with kids in great detail since most of them are spreading it by kissing and don`t know the risks. [46612]

I was diagnosed age 28 and married at 30 never had a problem with passing herpes or even outbreaks with my husband. Got divorced and had a relationship for about 2 years age 38-41 and again no problems. We broke up and I was alone for 9 years. Then I met a man we attempted a relationship I told him I have herpes but haven`t had an outbreak in over 20 years and he was okay with that. We had sex and I started getting sick everytime we got together. Then i decided I couldn`t be with him anymore because of the sick feeling. As i got to know him he had quite a list of women he had been with, lots of 1 night stands. I had never experienced the itchy body and feeling of morning sickness before. Then I think because of the oral sex my face feels like it is on fire with red blotches every now and then (could be herpes???). I am so upset that I ever slept with him but it`s too late now. Sad thing is he is a fun guy and we have remained very close platonic fiends.I have now chosen a life of abstinence and feel much safer, I am 56 and very attractive and still get asked out by younger men.But I do not want to pass this on to anyone. I often think i have passed this on to my children through a cold virus.They just think i am silly and refuse to believe it. I am curious if other herpes victims have experienced the itchy feeling all over their body. If so what do you do for it? [46605]
