Recommended Posts

It helps me when Im down in the dumps and even when I dont feel so hot physically I always feel better after I get up and do something. I also eat better and sleep better.

Today I swam the equivalent of a mile at the pool I go to and I dont know ANY non H people who can do that...except maybe Dara Torres or Michael Phelps....but I actually dont rly KNOW them so.....

ps. Now that I think about it, I wouldnt mind 'knowing' Phelps in Biblical terms at all...teeheehee

I agree exercise does make me feel better too...but i lack the motivation to get off my booty and do something right now haha...when I'm feeling down I always turn on a disney movie or comedy when I'm doing something...life can be so serious and I NEED something not so serious to break the ice surrounding me...i'm a nerd. Painting and doing something creative is something that makes me happy too. And there's nothing like a rollercoaster park to give you a kick of energy...i don't remember i have herpes when I'm flying through the air in a cart :) Ew, Michael Phelps haha jp....

What? You no like Mike? lol...

I also love watching animated films when Im down. Have you athced anything from Miyazaki? He has a new movie coing out called Ponyo, but his other stuff: Kiki's Delivery Service, Only Yesterday, My Neighbor Totoro or Whisper of the Heart are SO awesome. Definitely not just for kids and from the first scene I feel instantly mellow.

I also like watching Mystery Science Theatre. Drawing and painting also take me far away from my troubles.

You find him attractive do you? Haha Michael Phelps has a bangin body and I'd party with him but I'm more into soccer players...haha...And I LOVE Hayao Miyazaki films...they are amazing...Howl's Moving Castle and Kiki are my fave...I will be seeing Ponyo for sure. Happy endings are a must. I'm glad to know other people enjoy the same stuff.

I love Miyazaki's films too! :D I honestly couldn't choose a favorite between Kiki's Delivery Service, Princess Mononoke, Spritied Away, or Howl's Moving Castle.

I saw Ponyo yesterday. I was a little disappointed, honestly. The art was good as always, but it was more of a kid's movie.

I'm impressed...

I can swim a full mile too.

I doubt if I can swim a mile but I do love to swim and I try to swim as much as I can. It's been beautiful swim weather here in so Cal. Swimming keeps me relaxed and feeling optimistic.

trying

is a mile considered a long swim?

I floated 6 miles downstream once.

I have been back to exercising for about 2 1/2 months now. This is one area of life where I have a great deal of control. I am also inspired by my heroes in this area.

Here is one.

Dara Torres

and another.

Jack Lalanne. He is now 94.

I was walking at least a mile 2-4 days a week. It helps me physically and emotionally. Now, in the midst of an OB, it hurts to walk. So unfortunately, this is not an option for me right now. :sad:

      I had my first outbreak in June, very close to the date of your post. I healed up before the end of the month and it was about as many as you mentioned. I have gHSV1. The test was done on the left under the head of my penis because I had mostly healed by the time I made it to the doctor. There has been pain ever since in that one spot, but there hasn’t been any outbreaks. There are visible red spots that seem to linger forever. I’m a little concerned about this. Overall I’m lu it it is bite type 2 and I am doing my best to manage it. I hope you are doing well also since June. My wife and I (who I think I got it from) use condoms to prevent her from contracting it genitally. It’s a much more serious problem for women than men, as it can be internal for them and affect childbirth. Condoms are critical until a cure comes around, and there looks to be promising research. Hope you are well.

      I have been suffering from nerve pain after my first outbreak in June. Today I tried a charlotte’s web salve product and it took the pain away. I wouldn’t use it during an active outbreak though for risk of spreading it.

      Unfortunately that is the most common place men get infected!

      They are not the yardstick that you measure your worth with! It also tells you something about each and every one of them! To the ones you treated you well before I would personally talk to them and see if that was actually what he said to them? Maybe he said something different?

      I just disclosed to a man who works in the medical field and he didn't make a big deal at all. He shared his sti results w me I didn't see HSV1 on the test report, so I asked him about it and that opened up the discussion. The discussion of it was maybe 2 sentences tops. That was reassuring. We've since had sex and there was no hesitation or weirdness. So I recommend dating people w medical knowledge
