Hello people!

I know its been a while since i've been on here. I've gotten stuck into my new job and doing wel (or i like to think so! lol) Thats keeping me occupid.

Also i have finally gone out and met up with friends. I was worried about wot they would say, not coz they know about wot i have, but coz they know there was something wrong and that i was having trouble dealing with things. But they didnt act any different and it was like nothing had happend and i had never been away. Back to old times, laughing and chatting. Was nice.

Also got my self a hamster so that gave me something else to think about!! hehe (simple minds are amused by the smallest thing ay haha :p )

Still on my anti-d but i've asked to go on a smaller dose and see how things go, Not ready to come off them entirely as of yet, perhaps some day.

Well i hope you all are okay as well! Im still around, I havent fallen of the face of the earth!

Still very much alive and kicking! and i've met someone who makes me feel things i havent felt in a while! (Now nothing is going to happen mind, so dont go getting all happy and say i told you so!! just nice to know i can still feel things in that department!) ;) hehe though he is mightly cute! :D

Glad to read your post

and to know that you are doing OK, more or less, and even out socializing. I know what you mean about the guy and feelings. Sometimes it is just good to remember that this disease doesn't take everything in life away from you, that you can still feel something good and have good times with friends. I commend you for fighting the depression and doing whatever you can.

Hey Kya!! This post made my day!!

I am glad you are feeling better and getting out and about with your friends again!

Getting back to your old self!

And I LOVE the idea of the hamster too! I use to have them when I was a kid as well and we had those "habit trails..." is that what they are called...or "habitat trails" I dunno....just cool because your little friend can run around through all sorts of cool little tunnels and stuff.

Also, did you get one of those balls they can run around the house in?? Those are the BEST and now they have them big enough for like...guinea pigs!

But yeah, keep on doing what you are doing, stay strong, keep taking the meds for a while until you feel more sorted out. The ole spark plugs in the brain are re-charging! That is what the meds are for! I am glad you are doing well!!

Cheers!

      Hey all! I’m new and my diagnosis is pending. I’ve done so much research that I have a new understanding and respect for people living with herpes. That being said it wasn’t like that alway, I had been a part of a stigma we all know very well up until my latest annual pap. So I went in and had my pap and just a routing std check. Two days later and my OB calls and says everything’s good on the pap and the bloood work came back but there’s an acute result for herpes. Although he states he doesn’t know which kind or where and to come back in 6 weeks. So me being the 22 yo uneducated student, freaks out. I am asymptomatic and at the time he advises to check around my mouth and lips for any cold sores. I had a minor canker sore like lesion on my gum above my tooth and that was it super minor discomfort. So I went into a care now and the doctor did a pcr swab of the cut and another igm and an igg. So it’s about 5 days waiting period and during that time I get sick, similar to pharyngitis ( it was so bad I went back, the doctor gave me  Valacyclovir in case it was an outbreak). So now I really am thinking ok this is most like HSV-1 being it’s possible but less likely to be HSV -2 And I have zero symptoms on my genitals unless it’s dormant. And then plot twist, I get all results back, second igm, viral swab, and igg and all negative! What is going on?

      Hey @sheikha and welcome to the website. Different tests around the world have different numbers as to what means positive.  Do you have details of what test was performed? Does the paperwork indicate what number means positive? For some tests it’s 1.1, others 11 and some more than 20!

      What symptoms brought you to test in the first place 
    • Mikeike3
      Over 3.3 is a strong positive. You could repeat that test. I'd assume I had it.

      Lysine seemed to dry the blisters during outbreaks.  They would take about the same time to heal but there would be no/less fluid while using lysine.  At first it seemed like it was reducing the amount of outbreaks, but after a couple months they were coming just as often as before - if not more often.
