Hey, I'm new here and haven;t really had much support since I found out a week ago. I called up a local support group in Richmond that was listed and tried to get info, but the person on the phone actually said that he had no idea what "HSV" was. Since I really can't seem to find much support, here I am.

I had called a local number listed on the internet for a support group that used to be in my area. When a girl answered and I asked if this was the Herpes support group I got a ..... "Excuse Me...." and I apologized for dialing the wrong number and hung up. She is going to get a lot more calls like mine and will be wondering if some friends are setting her up for jokes or something :)

Welcome to the 'club'

Was this the number you dialed (804) 358-6343?

There are also some national help lines:

National Herpes Hotline

(Counseling Line)

Tel: 1-919-361-8488

CDC National STD Hotline

Tel: 1-800-227-8922

And do a search in Yahoo groups. There are over 1500 groups with the word 'herpes' in their name.

And come to the Live Chat room, plenty of nice people have been coming there for support.

Good luck!

JB

      @swagdaddy hey. First / second outbreak was horrendous. Had all of the above and was wmotionally distraught. The pain is the worst in the start and i had nerve pain fatigue , flu symptoms then i got flu and was sick for over two months. But then it passed. The anti virals help and definitely make sure u sleep and destress. How r u feeling ?

      I’m afraid to give it to someone even if we wear condoms. A boyfriend of mine gave it to me... never told me he had it. Relationship only lasted a few months after that. It’s been almost 3 years now.

      Little update, I've upped the dose of Zinc to 100mg/days on rest days and 160mg/day for workout days. I also just came to Europe for holidays and I'm freezing in this weather (My body is used to tropical Thailand weather). The cold weather seems to strenghten my immunity somehow, as the OB is clearing off. I have experienced the same in the past - always on my trips to cold countries it seems to get better.  I wonder if hot weather could cause this? I do spend most of my time indoors with AC at 25 degrees celcius in Thailand though and always protect myself from the sun.
