Alright here's what you have to do: get to a point where you really don't give a shit about herpes.
When I caught it I felt all the same bullshit that the people around here talk about. Stigma this and my life sucks that. I started telling people that I had herpes.After telling 8 or 9 people I have herpes, I found out that more than 15 people I personally know have herpes.
I started telling people when I was scared and depressed, and when I would tell people they would mirror my horror and act like they just lost a friend. As time went on I stopped giving a shit about herpes and it was at that period when I noticed that when I told people they'd just shrug their shoulders at me.
Moral of the story here is people will mirror your emotional state when you tell them. If you tell them like you're going to die, they'll talk to you as such. If you talk to them when you don't give a fuck, they won't give a fuck. It's pretty simple. I'm pretty sure I found the actual psychological theory behind that once. The key thing to being able to do this is not giving a fuck about your herpes. I mean at all.
Bro. If a girl won't date you because a few glorified pimples on your dick she's not the one. She won't accept you over a stigma, she's not going to accept you when it comes to real problems. Just move on ASAP. I know, easier said than done. Just don't let her keep you on an emotion hook and rip her out of your life. She'll be bummed when she inevitably becomes apart of the 1 in 4 women that get it and has no one to reach out to.
I am now experiencing my third outbreak after my ex-bf gave me genital hsv2 3 1/2 months ago. It is very mild and I started taking acyclovir 2x/day right away. My question is, if the sore goes away before I'm done taking the prescribed regime, can I stop taking the acyclovir as soon as symptoms disappear if they do so before I'm supposed to stop the medication? Also, my doctor says I do not need to take medication daily if I have fewer than six outbreaks a year. Looks like I may be heading in that direction. Thank you!
My child had it on her face which there are so many different types of rashes that are similar to hsv.. I've done too much research myself that I've literally convinced myself of this.. So that makes it even harder to trust any doctor.. I keep reading that if she had hsv, she would be very sick by now though.. But I don't even know what to believe anymore, especially when it keeps talking about undiagnosed cases and the morbidity associated with it
