I also had GHVS 1, and I had a HORRIBLE outbreak. I ended up in the ER! I know the pain you are going through, and it took me about 3 days to feel better. I had to take pain meds. Peeing was like a death wish. Ha Ha! I hope you feel better soon.
That applies to everyone here including you. I am not sure why you say someone has herpes, then I say they don't, and I get accused of being so certain. Keep your double standards to yourself, you are not a licensed professional yet that doesn't seem to stop you providing advice on supplements for people to take.
I don't reject people having HSV. I just challenge people to be sure they know what they are dealing with. I simply start with the premise that people who need to come to the internet for assistance do not have HSV and progressively take steps to diagnose with HSV if that's the case. What is wrong with this approach? Simply because it angers you doesn't make it wrong.
I am an authority on HSV and I will answer questions as such. Myself and my partner and my parents all have oral and genital HSV infections and I have plenty of experience and knowledge to share. This contrasts with your own situation of not having HSV 1 or 2. Who is better placed? I and many others here know way more and have way more practical experience with HSV than most medical practioners.
This is the internet and people are here to request opinions. I will give mine. It is not up to me to encourage other opinions to come forward. People have free will to do that and share what they will.
Again my motivations are clear and transparent and people take me as I am. That's all I offer, straight to the point and genuine. Your own motivations are far from clear. Your inability for some reason to cope with the fact that you do not have herpes clouds your judgment and objectivity in actually attempting to will and encourage people into a status that you aren't.
Please just be you, and you will have a lot to offer to good folk on this site.
It seems like a majority of the time, you reject that people have hsv. Not only that, but you get off on announcing it as if you're an authority on the matter.
I understand you have a personal history. And their seems to be some personal, social injustice coming out in your reasoning. ...but being pragmatic in that there are things you clearly don't know about is important to acknowledge; don't act you are so certain about something that is so variable. You're not a licensed medical professional. You do not have the power to diagnose and defiantly tell ppl what they do and don't have. At least urge people to get several internet opinions and interpret the spread from there.
