It's sad.

Recommended Posts

I just want to say that everytime I get on this forum, there is at least one new person that was just diagnosed. I think it's so sad that so many people catch this and it's happening at a rapid pace. I know how I felt when I was just diagnosed in Jan. 2009, and how I still feel about having H. It's been a very depressing time for me, and I still can't completely get over the idea.

Yes, Rockgirl, there are many new members here daily....but have you ever looked at the guests that read the forum who haven't joined? There are a LOT! It's amazing.

I think it just takes time to adjust. I hope you feel better (and more accepting) everyday!

Yes, it's sad but right now theres over 400 "guests" viewing this forum, how many of them are likely to have Herpes? Most either do have herpes or think they do. I for one would like to welcome them to join us!:)

Hey Rock Girl, I was diagnosed in May and there hasn't been a day where I'm not slightly put out from having H...sadly I also think about the guy who gave it to me and how foolish I was to trust him and not seriously consider the risks...but I've slowly started to handle myself better when I get down and that's something...

Thanks for the replys everyone. I too hope I will someday start to accept myself again. I know I will, it's just taking me a while.

Yes it is sad that people are not Woman or Man enough to tell the person they are sharing their bodies with that they have something that could change their lives forever. But hey, the world is cruel. We should be grateful that it doesn't kill us and doesn't really change our lives that much. If you really think about it... We aren't paralyzed or loosing weight, loosing hair etc.

A few outbreaks here and there that can be reduced, and a forum for support when we are down.

Don't be depressed, try to look at it on the bright side!

:D

Now lets see some teeth... smile!

      Give it a try and report back to us. It's pretty safe vaccine approved by the FDA.

      Have you tried changing your GP surgery? A decent doctor must surely realise that having back to back outbreaks warrants long term suppressive medication.  Aciclovir is available at very low cost to the NHS. I'd be firm with your doctor in what you'd like to do and make it clear you are educated on the relevant issues.  Don't be ashamed to talk to your GP. It is confidential.  FYI - walk in sexual health clinics (separate health record) are only as allowed to dispense a limited amount on the basis of episodic treatments.

      I agree, herpes doesn’t show up as discrete little dots like your pic.

      @Kurdt01Thank you! Very validating! And yes many doctors are so uninformed and misinformed it's incredibly frustrating.  ur right in multiple forums I've seen commenters invalidate someone's experience with herpes which is so weird. There's a wealth of experiences similar to both of ours but people put their hands to their ears and drill home "herpes is just a minor rash outbreak, nothing more."

      I got the zinc acetate from an pharmacy in my town, they can't sell reagents but I know the pharmacist. I cost me about 10 € a 50 gr bottle, enough for a decade at the current rate of consumtion. Otherwise it is quite easy to get, you can buy it from a laboratory or even in ebay. I apply the treatment on my glans about 2-3 times a week, I've never had any problem or adverse effect so far.
