He never told me he had Herpes 1 & 2, and yes Herpes 1 & 2 can be a scary thing.
I am sure I am going to receive some rejection, because I have this.
I started when i first saw the small fever blisters starting and took 2grams 12 hours apart then stayed on my daily 500mg.
best all is no side effects, gone to dentist last week for fillings(in past would always trigger outbreak) and another one for work tomorrow and seems to be doing fine. highly reccomend it to anyone suffering and works very well and really helps so you dont spread it to anyone else by kissing since it reduces the viral shedding by 90% anyways good stuff:) i know what you mean.
I agree with a comment, I read on here anybody who rejects you for something you can't control, isn't worth being with or my time.
All I can say to those who have Herpes 1 & 2, never give up it would be quite different if Herpes 1 & 2 didn't have some kind of treatment.
In the meantime, give yourself mad props for having the courage 2b honest with someone you care about.
Make it clear that you are aware of your body and immune system, including the symptoms of the virus, and would never do anything to purposefully endanger the health of another.
I find that its a good idea to tell a new boyfriend upfront about herpes because otherwise they might think you cheated on them!
Also, I always, always get a cold sore when I start dating someone new...
then i usually just say its a cold sore not herpes..
I usually get cold sores on the side of my mouth that end up scabbing over, with HSV-Zero only take about 10 days to heal. The results for the dry area and do not generate a large scab. I have felt really uncomfortable telling new dates about the fact I get cold sores.
i hate telling people too cause they always freak out an act like i have a life threatening disease.
