sitting on my ass...

Recommended Posts


I've just had a rather amazing (I'm easily impressed) thought, and I figured I'd throw it out there and see if anyone agrees that it sounds logical.

I work at a private school, and I work on my feet. From 5:30 am til about 1:00 pm, I'm on the move, constantly. I don't sit down. I also rarely get obs.

But... I'm also a writer, and sometimes spend virtually all day (like today) sitting on my ass, slaving over a hot keyboard. Invariably, when I do, the spot where I normally get obs starts to bother me, sometimes to the extent that I think I may be getting an ob. In fact, it's bugging me now. I'm not getting an ob, and once I'm up and about for a while, the sensation will go away, but it's uncomfortable.

Sooo... I was just wondering if having an office job, where you're pretty much confined to your desk, sitting on your duff day after day, might not be something that may encourage more frequent obs. I mean, how many people who get frequent obs have that sort of job, and could there be any relation between the two things?

I'd love to get some input on this. Anyone?

I think, you are right. And probably that is why every support website advise you to walk and get some exercise. I get the same thing. Whenever I sit by the computer my ass is feeling weird. I wish I could sit in the bucket full of ice. When I walk my dog, I am great and so is my ass.

I agree...

I sit all day at my job - been dealing with this damn OB since the first part of June. You may have a point....

Try a Lysine supplement for cold sores

      PesPes, there is no cure. You can treat symptoms and try to prevent outbreaks, but you will always have the virus and be able to pass it along. There is NO CURE at this point.

      Based on the sheet below, it would be around 10% per year without condoms with no active outbreaks. With condoms, 5.2% and condoms and antiviral therapy combined around 1.5-2.5%  https://herpesopportunity.com/downloads/herpes-opportunity-disclosure-handout.pdf

      So is there anyone that has tried this for which Valtrex/Acyclovir/Famvir doesn't work and have constant symptoms and problems?   It's expensive but if like 1 pill a week would work it would be worth it.....Trying to figure out if this works for people that the current AV's don't...

      Hi just wanted to share someone I found on Youtube who I think gives really good and honest herpes advice. She is an STD life coach who has had genital herpes for 9 years: https://m.youtube.com/channel/UC8AkCfC9_bcCvI7-sixkLJg/videos   Also check out Ella Dawson if you haven't yet seen her videos or website. Cheers:)
