Still new to all this

Recommended Posts

stronger1

Hey everyone, Im still pretty new to all this and just looking to meet others in the same situation. I found out a little over a month ago and now trying to deal with this the best way I know how. I have accepted it and moved on. It dosent seem that bad except now that I am single again it seems kinda hard for me to get out and try to date again knowing that Ill eventually have to have "the talk" lol. Anyways, I am a pretty laid back person and always willing to meet people and make new friends so I just wanted to say Hello H world...

Welcome to the club!

You must have done some extensive research into this virus to be at the place you are at.

I know it may be intimidating thinking about sharing your secret with someone else. Are you aware that there are dating sites specific to herpes and other STDs? mpwh.net and positivesingles.com are two of the more popular ones.

And are you aware there is a support group in Austin? The one here in Atlanta really helped me out, and I even ended up dating a girl I met there for a while.

Hi Ya

Welcome to the club and this site. I have to say i admire the way your dealing with this. I went through a whole spectrum of emotions when i first found out and although now im pretty much walking alongside my diagnosis there are times when im compleately out of step with it.

This is a great site and you'l find lots of information and support here. I hope you continue to go from strenth to strenth..

Just a small after thought tho.... if you do find you hit a phase where you feel like falling apart for a while... its ok to do that.

Everyones here to support you.

Good luck...

      It’s really scary and depressing to find out you have this virus. When I found out, last Wednesday, I went through the emotions and the pain of a severe breakout (8 in total, all in separate spots). Today, almost a week later, I can finally move without wanting to scream. My best friends, during this time, were my detachable shower head, Naproxen, and Lidocaine 5% cream. (If you do not have a detachable shower head I recommend one or get a Peri Bottle. They help for keeping clean and for pain relief) Just as everyone here, we want this to be over with. The pain to go away. To feel “normal” again. I’ve researched and read everything I could get ahold of. Then I read about Monolaurin. It's a substance that's derived from lauric acid that is found in coconut oil and human breast milk. It supposedly helps immensely with our virus from hell!  I read that this woman started using it and she hasn’t had a break out in 2 years AND when she does feel one coming on she doubles up on her dose and BOOM, it’s gone! I ordered some off of Amazon and can’t wait for it to get here! What can it hurt, right? Seriously, what do we have to lose (besides a breakout, hopefully!) Here’s some info if you have never heard of it and want to know more. Good luck and keep your head up!   https://www.verywellhealth.com/the-benefits-of-monolaurin-89482

      To be fair it would be hard to prove, you could have an oral infection for years before

      No they will stay anonymous due to not wanting them to be outed no doubt. That's if anything goes further cause it will be hard to prove damages hsv wise surely.

      I am doing this, but also taking other supplements at the same time. I drink a ton of water so it's easy to have lemon water on hand. I am on week 2 now.
