I have been living with genital herpes for more than decade, and I would rather not discuss the details of how I got it in the first place. That is not a very fun story to tell, and it would definitely put a damper on my mood, if I were to explain it right now. Instead, I am going to stick to my main purpose, which is to try to find information related to recent breakthroughs for a herpes cure and general advances in treatment of herpes in general.
I really do not like having an STD, it kind of makes me feel like I have been tainted. And I guess that in some respects, that is actually the case. I try not to let it get me down, but some times it is hard. I have had difficulty with relationships ever since I first got the disease. I wish that I could get rid of it, but I know that it is not easy to do that.
I wonder if it is possible to have your herpes go permanently dormant.
