i never in a million years thought that herpes could be the culprit.
ignore the very shocking pics on the net, in most cases they are VERY far from the truth. Society seems to poke fun at the disease, but In reality I think most people do that because they are ignorant, and feel like it will never happen to them.
I wish someone could get the balls to talk about it publicly and not one of thoese silly commercials. When I was in high school I use to make fun of the Valtrex commercials, you know, they use to show people doing all this adventurous or exciting things like horseback riding, mountain climbing, canoeing, bike riding, whatever.
And I would say something stupid like, “well, I didnt know you had to have herpes to do all that, I almost wish I could get it.” A year after graduation I was having my first outbreak.
Because HPV 16 may not cause outer symptoms but it causes cancer if left unchecked. As most of us caught what we had by not sleeping around, but from someone we were in a committed relationship with who we trusted. How is having an ailment as common as a cold gross? It’s uneducated people like you who publish lame stories such as this that cause such misconceptions about a simple virus that millions of people have. because one day you no you are going to have to tell them.
You people have NO IDEA how you can easily catch it. ignorance is why people who do have it are afraid to come out and be honest about it!!! so how do i meet a nice lady that may have it to and we dont have to say we have it.Derek’s most famous sexual conquest include Mariah Carey, Jessica Alba, Vanessa Minnillo and most recently Jessica Biel. ” […] but what the fuck is this an ad for an energy drink or Valtrex?! alone who have HSV2, the virus that causes genital outbreaks, and 90% don’t even know they have the virus…so before you say how gross it is…get a blood test to see if you have room to be talking.And speaking of Valtrex now that it comes out that Jessica Alba has herpes I might need to hook up a prescription because I imagined hitting that so often I probably got that […] How many of you arrogant f*cks have a clue about the disease? If you’ve ever had a cold sore, then you too have a form of herpes. As far as I know, you can’t get herpes from jacking off, so who cares whether Jessica has it or not? at least she’s using the valtrex to stop from spreading the virus (unlike the jerk who infected her apparently.) I was infected the same way, By a jerk who knew he had it and never told me.It isn’t that transfferable if your careful…and I think most people know and accept that pretty well. If it’s true she has it, it only adds to her beauty as strength is an attractive quality.I came across this by accident and I am so glad I did…I want to thank all of you for your supportive comments…I feel so much better after reading everyone comment…It’s been over 20 years I have not dated…yup very lonely and sad…Honestly, I don’t know how to tell and don’t want to see that look on his face when I say btw I have herpes…Honestly I am tired of all of the negative stigma attatched to Herpes and HPV as well. about 1 in every 5 people have it or have (or had) some kind of STD. Life goes on, but people who are ignorant about it, make people feel that they’re not worth shit when they try to live a “normal” life.Ill admit, I was partying a lot and slept with the wrong man. Yeah, herpes sucks, you get stressed out or sick and then you get even more sick when the virus comes out, but if anything, having it has taught me so many life lessons.It has taught me not just to date anyone and be more careful with my body, who my friends are (I told of couple of my friends when I found out and some of them though it would be fun to tell everyone else, so I said goodbye to them and my real friends still loved me all the same) and it has taught me that any man that truly wants to be with you will say “I love you for everything you are” not “i love your body, but its too bad your diseased.” My sex life did not end, I have had a couple of partners and all of them were told before anything happened and they all said it doesnt matter, and none of them was given the “gift that keeps on giving.” My current boyfriend, soon to be husband, tells me everytime I get sick that he doesnt care if he gets it or not, he just wants to be with me. So no, herpes didnt destroy my life, it made me stronger and wiser.thanks If ure trying to meet sum1 there are websites such as If sum1 likes u, don’t be afraid to open up.Im not saying go ahead and tell ur business to everyone you feel that ure attracted to, but life is all about risks. Your life is different now, but ure not disgusting because u have it.
