I found out about HHP from some other folks I knew online and Windy just kept bugging me to come here and hang in the tech folder after we chatted together on another site a few times.

   I feel very fortunate that HHP was one of the first things that popped up for me when I searched Herpes online. I have no earthly idea HOW it came up so quickly for me, but I know I didn't do an exhaustive search. I only stumbled into one other message board (lol, the racoon turned me off at first!) and people were yelling at each other and I thought, well, this is why I don't like people to begin with! But out of desperation for more info. (you can only reread the standard stuff on the ASHA site so many times--and it doesn't change no matter how many times you reread it, lol!) I decided to go with the racoon and was thrilled. Took me 3 days of lurking before I posted.

   Pretty sure it was just an online search, can't remember for certain if it was a search or saw the link somewhere else. I was searching and reading a lot though for awhile. Cym

   Haha, I'm sure it is, R! I'm assuming HHP helps lots of people who are HSV- too. Y'all still have to find the site, though!

   I'm like C, I did a search and this was one of the first that came up. In fact, I don't remember going to any others. And thank god I found you all. I don't know how I would have made it through without the people here!

I think I found this site within a couple of days of my first OB, three and a half years ago. I have never been more depressed than I was at that time. Now here I am, many years later, no more OB's, comfortable in my situation, happy in a relationship with a non H man, and happy too that I've been able to tell so many people and have them be ok with it. I owe it all to HHP.

   I know this comes months after everyone elses post but I just found out I have ghsv2 and found the medhelp site. I started talking to AJ and she directed me to HHP chat and suggested I post on the HHP forums. This place has saved me from going totally insane. This place and all of you seriously have answered more questions and comforted me more than any other source I've tried.

I remembered that there were newsgroups for support of various problems, so I tried alt.support.herpes, and it worked. Angela posted a list of links, HHP was on the list.

In response to message #14
 
I honestly can't remember if I found it on google myself, or from a link someone else sent me.

What I know for sure is that it happened when I was working on a relationship that ultimately ended in rejection due to HSV. I'd had HSV2 for over 28 yrs at that point, but after a recent divorce had never had to deal with transmission and/or telling until the last couple of years. His attempts to learn as much as he could about it before deciding whether or not to proceed in a relationship with me was how I ended up here.

I believe things happen for a reason, and coming here has made a huge difference in my life in so many ways. The blessings I've experienced as a result of finding HHP far outweigh any negative feelings from the rejection. I've met some truly awesome people here, both online and IRL!

   I think I found it on Google, too. I was lurking for a long time, and then had some new man questions (I think my first post was in regards to oral sex!) and then I realized that you all were so cool, so I kept coming around.

I was surfing the net a couple of days after I was diagnosed, unfortunately, I found a not so helpful site, found scrapygirl who gave me the link and suggested I check it out. I am so happy I did, I think I'm becoming addicted, there's just so much good stuff to read.

Just when I was getting used to yesterday, along came today.
