Weekends are Hard

Recommended Posts


I think I have too much time on the weekends to think and explore the internet. I'm a little sad tonight. Was on a website in which everything that was said is true, but trying to keep positive. Some of the things was that H doesn't always get better with age, long-term lysine use is not good, even if your partner has H you can reinoculate (sic) and make matters worse so you still should use condoms...

I just want this to go away, but I have to suck it up and realize this is not in me and deal with it.

i understand where your coming from. while awaiting my results i surfed the internet for hours upon hours; going from being angry to crying- from crying to pouting...you couldn't tell me i wasn't about to die- i attempted to write my will (yes, i was crazy). BUT when i got the call, i had almost no reaction- i've accepted that yes this is a virus, but it's not gonna kill me. i protect myself in all aspects, educate myself (the proper way), and i'm currently looking for charities/ organizations i can donate to for research, support for others who need treatment and otehr things. maybe i'm just the voice of reason (i've been called that); but you have to stay positive. thinking negative leads to nowhere- Thank god for the life you do have and push forward!!

      I believe there will be a cure for a gun and I do not want to lose my faith

      What do you think about ahcc? It is used in the treatment of HPV and increases immunity. Can it also prevent hsv? because increasing immunity will reduce recurrences. can it work? sorry for the spelling mistakes because it is not an anthropology

      Bleh, been a little over a month since I posted this and still having the burning pain since April. Will I ever feel normal down below again without taking meds for nerve pain?

      Although I am male, I have nerve pain down below as well. Instead of my leg, it is actually in my scrotum. I contracted this virus last year in December 2017. My initial outbreak was in my throat, nothing down below at all. Test in January confirmed that I had HSV-2; tested looking for IGG antibodies which were at 23. In April, I believe i had a very minor outbreak with just one spot that may have been a blister in my groin. Although there was no pain, I was afraid that it would get worse so I decided to take my valtrex for 5 days (the spot disappeared within 3 days). Two days after I stopped valtrex, the nerve pain came about and was in both of my inner thighs and my scrotum. From that moment on, the nerve pain moved from the thighs and stayed only in my scrotum and has persisted daily ever since.  My nerve pain is constant; not in the sense of 24/7 non stop, but on and off throughout the day, every day. So in essence, I'm in the same boat with you where I don't have any visible symptoms (no redness though in my case), but have the constant burning sensation. I will admit, hearing your story and knowing that this has persisted for you for over 16 years is kind of disheartening to me. I keep telling myself that because I am still new to this virus, my body is still getting use to it and that after the first year one day the nerve pain will stop completely. Now I am not so sure.
