LOL...holy crap, it's funny how our hormones drive us to do things. All I know is that now my curiosity is gone and monogomy is my life...as long as I still have a wife. I talked with my doctor two days ago and again questioned him about my latest results. I told him that all the reading I've done about HBV has made me paranoid. He assured me that I've cleared the virus and having unprotected sex with my wife should not be a concern. However, as I told him, I'm going to try to convince my wife to get vaccinated. I should feel good about all of this, but I don't. I'm sure my wife will never forgive me. Even though I tell her several times a day that I love her, she has not responded in kind since this happened. I still have urges. I still love her. I hope for the best for you.
Yeah, those damn sex urges can be a real curse. At least you can say that you were infected by a female, I did it with a guy. It's not that I'm gay, I was just curious and a little drunk. I know I'll never be curious like that again and drinking is not part of my lifestyle anymore, either. It's funny how that curiousity got to me. The guy struck up a conversation and the next thing I knew he was hitting on me. I can't believe I was so vulnerable. Of course, drinking didn't help matters. I feel pretty stupid and now I'll pay for it the rest of my life. My doctor is supposed to be calling me soon to explain the results from my last blood test. I was told I have immunity to the virus but I'm not sure what all of that means. I need to know if the virus is hidding and I'm a carrier.
I know exactly how you feel. This bug will worry you sick. I will send you a letter with the details of my experience. It certainly helps to get as much understanding about hep b. We really do fear what we don't understand. I finally have enough grasp of this bug to feel good about my test results.
Just a quick note to say hi! Good luck to you, too. My doctor told me the same thing about having a good chance to clear it up, but like you I was, and still am, uncertain. I posted a journal entry that chronicles my situation. I think we both experienced some of the same emotional and physical symptoms of this ugly virus. Besides being sick, I had to face the fact that I had sex with another guy while I was married. The guilt feelings will never go away. What's your situation? Are you gay or straight? How did you contract HBV? You're in my thoughts and prayers.
