The Correlation of Suicide and Herpes

The Correlation of Suicide and Herpes

According to a recent report about suicides in America, the suicide rates that include both sexes and all racial and ethnic groups have increased. This disturbing report, issued by federal health officials from the CDC, shows that since 1999, the suicide rates within America have increased by 30 percent. This increase has also touched the lives of all economic and social classes. 

The Herpes Stigma

For a large percentage of individuals with herpes, the psychological struggle of coping with the stigma of genital herpes (HSV-2) can be depressing to say the least. To complicate things even further, the herpes simplex virus, also known as (HSV), is viewed by many people of both sexes as a love life death sentence, and unlike its counterparts, HSV can’t be cured.

Research shows  a link between depressed individuals with the herpes simplex virus and suicide. Although genital herpes (HSV-2) is a very common sexually transmitted disease (STD) in America, it;s difficult to deal with this disease, the herpes stigma, and painful lesions. People who have herpes simplex are frightened, angry, and also afraid of being alone. 

The Two Types of Herpes Simplex

The herpes (HSV-1) viral infection includes fever blisters and cold sores caused by the (HSV-1) herpes virus. The most commonly associated (HSV-1) infection includes cold sores. Recent research reports show that more people are now being diagnosed with (HSV-1) outbreaks on their genitals in addition to viral conditions that are typically found on the lips, the tongue, and the soft palate inside the mouth. 

The Behavior Related To The Spread of (HSV-1)

It's easy to understand why people seek information about the spread of (HSV-1). There are a number of contributing factors that can cause the spread of (HSV-1). These factors include many things such as engaging in oral sex, kissing, and oral secretions. The virus can also spread by simply sharing eating utensils, drinking glasses, cups, toothbrushes, and cigarettes. Other items that should not be shared with an individual, or individuals who have an active herpes virus include lip balm, lip gloss, lipstick, and towels. 

To complicate things even further, many distraught people are simply unable to handle the stress, depression, anger, ongoing psychological pain, and the thoughts of suicide as the only way out. These emotional and stressful reactions also include individuals who are asymptomatic, even though they do test positive for herpes. For many, it's as if they have no where to turn. 

The Importance of Herpes Testing

For people. regardless of age, who are experiencing genital symptoms, we strongly recommend herpes testing to determine whether they are infected with the herpes simplex virus.

For the record, an outbreak of herpes frequently presents in the form of mild or severe blisters, skin rashes, or painful sores that are located on or around the genital area, rectum, buttocks, and, in some cases, around or in the mouth and gums.
