I read these posts... A lot of them are from females and my heart goes out. I've been scouring the net for answers, everything from symptoms to confrontation tips; the latter being forlorn: mostly "tell mr. a-hole to..." I got HSV-2 from a girl who will not acknowledge it but , in a way, has 'admited' to having it. I had my first OB in '07. I thought I got bit by a brown reclouse spyder above my d---. Ha... She said "I can't even look at that, go away" etc, and wouldn't tell me why her last BF left her crying and peeling wheels in the driveway. Call me Sherlock Holmes cause I got the clues together(THANKS FB). I did confront her. she got maried, so my intial question was 'did you have blood test b4?'. I told her my diagnosis and she pretty much just lied thro the teeth and acted stupid. In short: I hate this B. My life is ruined. My skin crawls off my body, then bubbles off only to heal in disfigurement. The stinging itch... I've never been so aware of how the skin is an organ. BY THE WAY, and most importantly: THIS WAS THE 3RD GIRL I SLEPT WITH. I work at a bar and watch these fools hook up and bang randoms- get away with murder- completely unprotected and never seem to recieve any consequence and it just kills me. Then they can't understand why I'm not doing the same. "Oh hey girl, what up? ...by the way..., I'M THE ONE IN THREE THAT HAS THE HERP."View Thread
Hey thanks for taking the time to respond. I was was really pissed off when I wrote that. I was going through such a stressful time I was breaking out twice a week, and man it sucked.Things have calmed down a bit, and I'm not wanting to rip off my skin. I never realize stress was such a big factor in out breaks.View Thread
