New here...vegan and insurance issues

3 posts in this topic

Hi everyone, this looks like a great, supportive and informative site. I was diagnosed with genital herpes last November. It was very painful, physically and emotionally.

Recently I switched jobs and lost my health insurance. I now pay for my own insurance. They attached a rider stipulating that they would not pay for anything related to the herpes. I'm assuming this includes drugs? After doing some research online I guess this seems to be normal practice, but it just adds insult to injury.

Also, I was reading on this site about lysine and arginine. I'm vegan, and I eat a LOT of brown rice, tofu and peanut butter. In fact, I was feeling depressed about the insurance situation last night, so I made myself some vegan rice crispy treats containing brown rice cereal, peanut butter and chocolate! So reading this today was so depressing. I guess I'll try to cut back on some of these foods, but my diet is restricted as it is, so...yeah. If any other vegans/vegetarians have advice, that would be great.

You may find that eating some of these things do not affect you at all. I eat a low fat, lower sugar diet and little meat. But I don't give a second thought to eating what I want as nothing seems to cause outbreaks.

Oh good...that's encouraging to hear. I don't want to starve!

      Life is truly a mess
      It won't let me edit the post. It should've read " months without vaginal sexy times" 
    • Jwhite
      OUCH!!!
      I'm 33 And pretty sure I have herpes.. I can't afford to go to the doctor for a couple weeks .. but have been reading about herpes since I started having problems down there. Im not quite sure the exact date it all started .. but today is the worst !! I feel so sick my whole body hurts especially my rib cage.. it hurts so bad when I pee I want to scream.. and then cry .. I am scared since I can't see a doctor yet will this clear up on its own or do I have to be on a prescription? Does anyone else have pain in their rib cage? It hurts this is miserable !!!

      Life is truly a mess
      I agree with SheIsBlue, we look at marriage differently. I can say I've had numerous surgeries and hubby went months with vaginal sexy times with me, but we work around the times one of us is injured or sick or ill, that's what marriage is about! Those vows better or worst, sickness and health mean exactly what the spell. You act as though she's done a favor for you by being supportive, honey that's her job! I've been married over 26years and we've been through Cancer, miscarriage, loss of parent and grandparents and siblings, so that's natural in life,but it no one gets extra points for supporting the other during these tragic times. I don't like divorce, I had one, but you can get healthy without her just as easily as with her. She obviously didn't marry for the right reasons and it seems your paying the price. It sounds conclusively as though she checked out long ago, it may be time to move on. I agree a home is made from both your ideas, examples: I have friggen dear heads and toy planes decorating my home, NOT my taste but it's who he is. Therefore I LOVE it because I love him, see how that works. A partner should complete and compliment you and make you better NOT tear you down and make you feel guilty and full of blame. It very well may be time for you to leave and pick up the pieces of your life. You can still find true LOVE, trust me on this. If I can do it anyone can  ! Keep us posted. Hugs Aces xo
