So many people have such hopeless feelings. As my doctor told me deal with it its is not a death sentence. I just found out I am positive for HSV2. However I was shock when I found out I had it but I was mostly concern that I may have passed it on to my partner unknowingly. As I am sure that whoever gave it to me did so unknowingly. I take responsibly for my own actions and it takes two people no matter what. We all have issues in life to deal with men/women who have cheated, left, stopped loving. Don`t give up life is too short. Be good to your self you deserve happiness. After reading about it online I know realize that I have probably been living it for a long time because I have attributed the flu like symptoms to the flu. I really am rarely sick and haven`t miss a day of work in 5 years. I never noticed any breakouts. I rarely get headaches, sometimes I have pain but in my butt or legs but heck when I have a good workout I get them too. Plus I eat all the wrong foods. 90% of any healing is in your attitude.. I have consulted my nutritionist. He put me on some supplements Red Marine Algae 375mg, Olive leaf and L-Lysine 1000 mg. He started me off with the 2 - 4xper day of the Red Marine, 1 Olive leaf 4xper day and 1 -l-lysine 3xper day. After a week he told me to go down to 1 Red Marine 3xper day, 1 Olive leaf 3x per day and 1 L-lysine 3xper day. Maybe it is psychological but I don`t feel sick in anyway even though my blood test showed it. I do not know what the future holds I only know I do have one and I will make the best of my life everyday no matter what. I will do right, show mercy and walk humbey with my God Much love to all [46515]

Six days ago is when everything started. My genital area was sore, red, and itched. I had just had sexual intercorse the night before. I`m often sore after intercorse so I figured it was that. The next day my genitials were swollen and sore. They did not itch anymore though. I also had some vaginal discharge. I then thought that I had a yeast infection. The day after that I noticed the blisters in my vulva area. They didn`t hurt then and some of them had already broken. Since then I`ve had bad swelling, lots of vaginal discharge, severe pain when urinating and walking. Today I noticed that the blisters on the inside were going away. The outside is still incredibly sore. I`ve taken 6 hot baths today with Epsom salt. That relieves the pain, but it`s hard to live in my bathtube. Cream for the burning helps a little. Right now I`m just hoping each night that it`ll be gone tomorrow. I haven`t been diagnosed because I have no insurance or money. But I have all of the symptoms. I`m afraid that my boyfriend gave this to me. We`ve been together for two months now. This is the first situation like this. He has no symptoms at all. Which is why I believe he may already be a carrier. I`m trying not to stress so much because I hear that makes it worse. To anyone out there who is going through this with me, then I`m terribly terribly sorry. I wish you the best of luck. [46511]

I am 24 yrs old n i was diagnosed with herpes. I became very disstraught and depressed once i found out. I thought it was the end of the world. I shared it with a few friends and one of them told people bout it. I was and still am hurt about it. But one good thing is my boyfriend knows and he still loves and wants to be with me. I never forget i have it but as long as he knows im happy. And so will u. [46508]

I have gone years without an outbreak, but in the past year I have had them almost monthly. I think this is largely due to the stress of being unemployed. Also, I don`t "show" symptoms, but I experience a fair amount of pain that is in the genital area and goes down my gluteus and thigh (always in the same place). It has been suggested that it is hormone related as I am considered to be in peri-menopause (groan). I am considering natural hormone replacement therapy. [46505]

I contracted the disease 4 years ago having unsafe sex with a guy I worked with. My first outbreak was nearly unbearable but have had very few (2 or 3) recurrences since. I was devastated when I found out and got extrememly stressed out and depressed (which made the symptoms worse). I thought I would never have a normal relationship again. How do you tell someone something like that? Well, the reason I`m writing this is to tell people that it IS possible to live a normal like with Herpes. Last night I bit the bullet and told my boyfriend about it because I love him and I wouldn`t feel right keeping it from him. It was difficult for me to say and even more difficult for him hear but after a long discussion and several questions, he told me that he loved and wants to spend the rest of his life with me and since this was part of me, he would have to accept it. He also said that if he ends up getting it (even though we are being very careful), at least he will get it from someone he loves and trusts. I just want people to know that if the person you`re with truly loves you and is in the relationship for the long haul, they will accept you. I know it seems impossible to deal with but I hope my story can help you deal with your own acceptance of it. [46504]

I was unfaithful to my husband 15 years before I was diagnosed with herpes. I had one sexual partner, other than my husband. I had told my husband of this affair and he forgave me! And then, 15 years later, I had herpes! I`ve always wondered if herpes can lay dormant for that period of time or was my husband unfaithful to me! My husband and I did have oral sex not long before I had my first outbreak, and I`ve also wondered if perhaps he was a carrier orally, but had never had a herpes blister on his mouth and that was how I contracted it! These questions have always been in my mind! [46502]

I met this girl a few weeks ago at a bar when I was out with some friends celebrating. I kept things very innocent, as I have always been very careful about strangers and being sexually active with them. Towards the end of the night we kissed a few times, but I left it at that. We exchanged numbers and planned to meet up sometime in the future. I realized a few days later that (I either took down her number wrong or she gave me a false one.) I was just diagnosed less than a week ago with hsv1. I started getting strange marks on my face and thought I had some type of bacterial infection because it was on my chin. When the doctor told me it was herpes I couldn`t believe it. I started sobbing right there. My whole life I have been extremely careful with partners, this was the first time I had ever let myself go free and something like this happened. She didn`t have any signs or marks that I could see either and of course she never told me about her situation. I didn`t even know this lifelong disease could be transfered through kissing...i wish there was more mainstream information out there to protect others from getting this. It`s a very taboo thing, everyone who has, it hides it...this is why it`s so common, because no one wants to tell anyone. This is also the reason why 1 in 4 americans has this and the percentage of people who contract it jumps every year. For the past week I`ve been thinking nonstop about my new problem, its very difficult to coop with at first. Every time I look in the mirror I am constantly reminded of what one night off innocent kissing can lead to. Right now I`ve been able to accept what I have, its mostly just an inconvenience, but I don`t see this effecting my live too drastically, nor will I let it. I am way more careful about cleanliness now, I have absolutely no desire to spread this terrible thing to anyone. The only thing I am really frustrated with is finding a partner who would be ok with this issue...i know if they aren`t then they aren`t worth it, but still it`s not a fun issue to live with for the rest of your life [46500]

My outbreaks have always been frequent but I thought they were stress-related. Since my stress levels have dropped I thought the frequency would also but I`ve have 3 outbreaks in the last 5 months and they seem to be getting more severe. It`s so frustrating. Even taking Lysine didn`t reduce the severity this time. [46486]

Fat lady sang. No "life" with H. You just "exist". What crazy NON H person WANTS to be with someone with such a horrible VD? $$$ in $$$ $uppre$ant$. What`s left now ( only dating "with our own kind"? Some will do that, and "settle" for whom/whatever they can find, because they know NO SANE PERSON will want them. Let`s be REAL, and not PRETEND, that having HERPES is "ok") [46480]

I contracted genital HSV 1 through oral sex when I was 16. We were ignorant of the risk in transmitting a virus in this manner. I had an outbreak shortly after oral sex and maybe a few other outbreaks, but honestly I don`t remember the last time. I think it has been more than 15 years. I recently had a minor recurrence that I almost passed off as something else until I remembered the familiar painful itch. I was very stressed out and had little sleep so I believe that is my trigger. The lesion only persisted for about 5 days and then was gone. I hardly noticed it. I know how some of you feel...dirty and embarrassed. Don`t give up hope. You may find you have fewer recurrences as you get older (I`m 45). Take care of yourself and be honest with your partners. If they love you and know you will manage the virus as best you can, then everything will be ok. [46457]

I havent read anything about the feeling of nerve sensitivity. I start feeling my syptoms first by my hips and thighs and sometimes even down to my feet of nerve sensitivity. This recent breakout my flip flop on my foot was really ultra senstive. I feel uncomfortable just with a soft rub of the skin. Also my glands in my female area gets so swollen that I will have red spots on my skin where it hurts. There is also an odor down there and this all comes before the actual sore. Its like its manifesting in my body and the sore is the place it finally breaks free to breathe and heal. Im so greatful a generic version of Valtrex has come out because I do not have insurance.
