Herpes: the gift that keeps on giving

Someone in my family has cold sores and it isn't me or the kids. And you know what that means: herpes. Makes me wonder what he did to get it, because even though it isn't the STD version, we all know only sinners get herpes. Want proof? I got chicken pox (another herpes) right after I stole candy from the grocery store when I was 6. See!

So now I get no kisses and the very really possibility that I will contract the disease as well, because let's face it, I just can't stop saying "hell". SIN! Now I have no immune protection. I made it a point to never kiss anyone whose had cold sores just so I didn't get it. Now I'm screwed because I can't see using "herpes simplex I" as a justifiable reason for divorce. And we all know this is really about me and not the person actually suffering with the virus.

  1. Maybe he could take once daily Valtrex. I hear it's the only medication proven to reduce the risk of spreading herpes to others.

  2. Maybe I should do google ads and try to make some money off your endorsement :)

  3. I really dislike not being able to kiss my husband. I also dislike that cold sores are usually brought about by stress.

    I feel like I stress him out. Of course, he's to good to tell me that I do. :)

  4. Sell his herpes on Ebay. Selling weird stuff is all the rage these days.

  5. My roommate is marrying a guy with not std-herpes. I think it was almost a deal-breaker. ;)

  6. Just to warn you, his kind of herpes is also the STD kind, basically. Both kinds are. You can have the non-STD kind of herpes on your privates if his mouth bumps into your *area* by accident sometime. Very true story.

  8. Yeah, we did a bunch of research and apparently cold sores are a pretty common STD (or is it OTD?). Listen to Sara folks, watch out!!
