Hi Kat07, and welcome to the forum!

Oh how I remember those feelings. I never thought they would change or I would ever feel "normal" again. It might be hard to believe right now, but you will feel better, sooner than you think.

This is a great place to meet people going through the same emotions. Everyone is in a different place, so it's good to hear from all stages of the roller coaster you are speaking of.

Read all you can to learn about the virus. The more you know, the less scary it is. Knowledge of the virus takes the mystery out of it, helps with managing it, and getting your life back. ;)

I definitely know how you feel. Its a big shock at first. Im still dealing with the shock, but the more and more you think about it, its not the end of the world. Yeah, its embarrassing, painful and a hell of alot of other things, but its not a death sentence and well all learn to live with it eventually, we have no other choice. Everyones here to support eachother so if you ever wanna talk feel free to send me a message

      How do you get in touch with a Moderator for this site? I am being bullied, unbelievably, on a support site.  I can't just let it go because it is happening to other people too.

      For the last time, my name is not Jay.  My name is Amy.  I am not telling you my last name.  I am a woman, not a man.  I've reported all of your rude comments to me and asked an Admin to prove to you that I am not Jay.  You are really pissing me off.  I'm pretty sure Spinky is in the same group on FB for meningitis and he can vouch for me.  Now get a life and leave me alone!!!!

      Ronald, could you please stop with the capital letters; it's annoying to read.

      Hello I have similar symptoms as you. Most prominent is burning after urination. It is more while sitting.  It is not possible because of herps as it is a virus which causes symptoms in a cycle and never continuously as reported in your case and also the frequency decreases over time.   Kindly post here for further discussion as i am still trying to figure out what it can be.

      Coffee has argnine properties.  I get outbreaks from drinking caffeine or decaf.  I have since stayed away as I recognize my triggers.
