Hi, I was newly diagnosed with hsv2 around a month ago now and I haven't really found that my outbreak has stopped, or mabey they are separate. I just started my 3rd round of valtrex 500mg (twice a day for 3 days).
Could it be that I'm still experiencing an initial outbreak or more likely it's been my 3rd outbreak (all have been very minor with no painful sores)
i find the one thing that is persisting is I'm very sensitive around my lymph nodes pretty much all the time. It kinda feels like a sore tingling in the skin above them. Also, I have little tingles in my thighs constantly throughout the day. Will these tingles stop or persist even when I'm not having an outbreak? I know I'm lucky with having symptoms on the milder side but I would like to know if anyone has experience persistent permanent nerve sensation because of the virus.
Exactly man. You don't want or need someone to rescue you from yourself. It's up to us to rescue ourselves and be the best version of ourselves.
And, as i'm fast discovering, while a loving relationship and partner is a beautiful thing, life itself is also beautiful and there is so much more to life than the pursuit of romantic relationships.
Having the unwanted gift of herpes is another challenge, but it can also be the stimulus to self growth.
It is not a conflict of perception. Whilst people may perceive that herpes causes PHN for example doesn't make it scientific fact. Just because people say that SJW regenerates nerves doesn't make it scientific fact.
You have not produced any scientific papers or facts that support your claims, nor do they exist.
This is simply about factual information, it has nothing to do with perceptions. People have a right to know the facts and make up their own minds.
Again I note that you never disclose that you do not have a confirmed herpes diagnosis therefore you do not have anything to offer in terms of experimentation with supposed remedies, so let's make sure we hear from people with real experience.
it doesn't take much to put together the inflammatory nature of hsv. That's herpes 101. If you don't believe it then that's fine. Herpes isn't going anywhere so ppl can consider whatever ideas they want. If their perception of this virus' effects on the body is wrong then they'll be looking for answers once again. Hopefully, if they're tired of suffering.
Youve had this your whole life. Others are just joining the club. Everyone remembers how they were before and now after. How can you relate if you don't have that perspective or if you're not willing to experiment w remedies that may affect your for the better.
if ppl want to read evidence then they can go through my post history bc this isn't the first time we've had this conflict of perception.
@Free73 I agree with you completely! I had depression before getting diagnosed. I had no self worth, no self respect or self esteem. Guess what happened when I was diagnosed with herpes?? Those feelings were magnified 10 fold! The two rejections I've suffered cause of disclosure have crippled me!
Will I be "alone" forever... I don't think so. In time, I will find an understanding girl who will be understanding.... It would be easier if she was positive to put my mind at ease, though.
But right now, I have a negative attitude and self view of myself. A girl will be understanding of a stigmatised "skin condition" but not of a negative, self hateful attitude. I've started running again and laying off alcohol. I feel a lot better for it. I need to be the person I want in a partner. I wouldn't want a partner who thinks as lowly of themselves as I do.... I've got some work to do
