trying to see the positive

Recommended Posts

ok so in order to not completely freak myself out about finding out I have herpes, ive been trying to find the upside in this whole situation... so far ive come up with:

- you find out which people truly care/love you despite your flaws

- I finally have motivation to actually start a healthy diet and exercise routine

anyone else have stuff to add?

hmm

I honestly can't think of anymore... which isn't very encouraging and then I realized the two you have listed are

HUGE!

To ween out the lost cause relationships before they even become, "relastionships" and heath.... eating better and ESPECIALLY exercise with give you more self respect, a brighter outlook on life, and you will hopefully attract more spiritually fit mature relationships! It really is a big deal.

I think this is the greatest post/thread I've read in sometime. ...looking for the solution (the positives) rather than dwelling on the things we have no control over!

Best of luck! Much love,

meme

God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change;

courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference.

Living one day at a time;

Enjoying one moment at a time;

Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;

Taking, as He did, this sinful world as it is, not as I would have it;

Trusting that He will make all things right if I surrender to His Will;

That I may be reasonably happy in this life and supremely happy with Him

Forever in the next. Amen.

Kudos to you for actively looking for a bright side. And for coming up with two great ones. Well how about learning more about your ability to overcome adversity. And learning to accept yourself despite your flaws (because before we worry about someone else accepting us, we have to accept ourselves). Also, whenever you choose to talk with someone about HSV (be it a friend, prospective lover, family) you are educating yet another person about this condition. This in turn helps to reduce the stigma attached to it and increases their compassion for someone who has it. That's all I got and these are things I truly believe.

Morning

oh and i just thought about this one, you now have the opportunity to get to know someone else with the virus that you might have just blown off in the past not realizing that this person could be good for you...

      I certainly hope this research continues. It all seems legit to me, but again, I'm no medical man (although I did play doctor a few times).

      This is good information to know. To go from continuous outbreaks to none all this time is encouraging. I wonder if after you've given it some time and this regimen proves itself, maybe you could title it, and type it for everyone to read. The more suggestions, the better! You mentioned you've suffered with Herpes I outbreaks. I have suffered with the type II, and I recently read that Lysine doesn't help with the type II. I don't know about that, because it really has helped me in years past. Anyway, by mentioning in your article that you have type I will help, because apparently something might work for type I that won't work for type II. I myself will get these products and add them to my daily garlic regimen, and perhaps I will be able to eat whatever I choose without triggering an outbreak. That's my big problem, wanting to eat the foods that trigger the outbreak!

      “..Meanwhile, the present study suggests LDXGFG as an alternative, inexpensive, and lasting-effect medicine for curing HSV2 infection caused genital herpes....” Anyone  seen any further research on this ?
