I totally agree with you and also have a goal of permanently suppressing the virus by whatever means necessary.
The reason I posted that is because it pains me to encounter people obsessed with a 'cure' to a point where it seems to be causing emotional, spiritual and physical damage (from stress or dangerous experimental procedures).
There are people being destroyed by herpes but not becasue of outbreaks or the fact that dating it now difficult... because of what is going on in their MINDS.
Not to say I wasn't a mess myself for the first year or so, but you must get to a place of acceptance and letting go.
I agree that passive research is MUCH better for the body and mind than aggressive, obsessive overly peronalized research.
