Where did Herpes Come From?

On June 13, 2014, in Blog, Education, FAQ, by Admin

A lot of websites claim herpes is a few thousand years old.  That’s not when herpes came about; that’s when writing things down came about, so that’s the first time it actually got documented.  We’ve had Herpes Simplex much, much longer than that – more than a million and a half years longer for HSV-2… […]

How I choose to fight back

On April 6, 2014, in Blog, H Stories, by Admin

In 2009 I was diagnosed with HSV2 and thought my social life would crumble away. I went through denial and became a binge drinker, so much so that I couldn’t make rent and had to move home with my parents. After a few months of living there I decided it was time for me to […]

 

Sometimes, even silence is rude.

On April 3, 2014, in Blog, Race for Awareness, Team H, by RunnerGirl

Ignorance is bliss? A note to the haters….. The word hate is defined as “intense or passionate dislike”…with synonyms like loathing, detestation, dislike and even abomination. At some point it was bound to happen. In fact, I expected it much sooner than this. Alas, I received my first negative comment regarding the Race For Awareness […]

 

The Straight Dope on Herpes Statistics

On April 3, 2014, in Blog, Education, by Admin

If you try to look up herpes statistics on the Internet, you may well come to one of two conclusions: either nobody knows what the hell they’re talking about, or nobody really knows how many people actually have herpes. Herpes statistics abound and nearly all of them are untrue.  Not because the science is faulty, […]

On April 3, 2014, in Blog, by Admin

The HSV we each have is quite similar, but every single individual with HSV is different, due to our very unique immune systems.  Obviously, everyone’s feelings about HSV – or dating non-h – will vary just as widely.

Two Angels and a Muggle

On March 28, 2014, in Blog, Race for Awareness, Team H, by RunnerGirl

This week I started researching travel arrangements for the first race in Nashville. As I am donating my own time and monies to attend each event, finding the cheapest deal to get back and forth is imperative. Additionally, it’s the first race. So it’s important to me to take my son as well. He’s been a […]

 

What Supplements Would Say if They Required Warning Labels

On March 20, 2014, in Blog, by Admin

We often hear people recommending supplements to one another, especially in regard to the therapeutic treatment of HSV and HPV.  There seems to be a pervasive belief in society that since supplements don’t require a prescription, they’re more natural or healthful and may not be nearly as harmful as prescription pharmaceuticals.  Is that really the […]

Auntie Herpes

On March 16, 2014, in Blog, Race for Awareness, Team H, by RunnerGirl

Before I went public about my HSV & HPV status, I needed to have a discussion with my nieces and nephews. They were the only immediate family members that didn’t know my status. Most of them are teenagers getting ready to embark on life as adults. If I could teach them one thing before they […]
