Herpes is a shortcut word of Herpesviridae, which is a family of viruses that we have had with us for thousands of years. Grandma and Grandpa, Auntie and Uncle had herpes. Chickenpox, shingles, mono, cold sores, and fever blisters are all herpes.
Millions of kids are running around daycares today giving each other herpes.
Every Walmart and drug store has a section now for herpes topical treatments because it is as common as the common cold to have herpes. But they label it cold sores, as the herpes word scares people.
HSV2 has some statistics over at the CDC. One out of five women has HSV2 and one out of nine men has HSV2. Elsewhere it is noted that at least 60% of adults have HSV1. So most adults have herpes. Yep. And about 80% do not even know it.
Why all this fear? A pharmaceutical company wanted more profits so they invented bad feelings about herpes.
So anyway, I am one of the one in five that have it. It's not as scary as it sounds, I promise. I don't get the actual cold sores, I am just a carrier for the virus. I mean come on it's just a skin disease, cold sores. Adults pass it on to children, and children pass it to each other every single day.
I temporarily cannot work or go to school due to medical reasons. I am working with doctors to get things under control so I can get my life back and I CANNOT wait until that day comes! I am half way through college, I have two years left. I am studying to be a nurse and will not give up on my dream no matter how many people tell me I should. I also would like to get my book of poetry published! While I'm stuck at home I've been working on getting that together.
*My medical issues include Anaphylatic shock, I can go into at any moment even without coming into contact with anything. I have severe pain in my abdomen from time to time. I have been fainting so for the time being I cannot drive.
My ideal match:They are respectful, honest, kind, caring, faithful, non-abusive, will stand up for me when needed. Family oriented, wants kids, has goals, and understands that I have goals and want to achieve them, has a romantic side, and will watch the occasional chic flick with me.
