Im at year 5, so there is a possibility im not shedding at all?
When you say GSV1 is benign you are not kidding. i have had zero problems since my primary, even off antivirals. I have terrible allergies, asthma and eczema, all are way more severe and cause me actually physical pain but for me the only pain herpes has is the stigma. Even though the same ppl who reinforce the stigma have never been tested for either type, or don’t know their cold sores ARE herpes, i.e how i ended up hsv 1. (sorry for my rant, i been observant these last 5 years) this does tie into my last question lol.
How do you feel about disclosing gsv1 as “cold sores” ? it carries way less stigma, coupled with the fact that i know my GHSV1 is way less transmittable than OHSV1 is, i feel like its a happy medium of disclosure, my partner gets to know the virus is there, and im actually keeping them safer from contracting it then they think or do you suggest FULL disclosure here?
