this is soooooooooooo frustrating!!!! I have had 2 relationships since finding out in november that i had contracted the lovely ghsv1....I told both of them about it and we got thru it...my theory is that "pretty beats herpes" lol The thing is...is not to brag...but im a cute girl...temptation is out there every day and what really sucks is i cant have the care free ****ty sex that all of my friemds get to have bc i have fucking herpes. i mean seriously... the hottest guy in all of america gave me his number today and i cant even be happy about it!!! this SUCKS! and what REALLY sucks...is i have type 1...so i dont have ob's...I feel like a normal girl...except for the fact that in the back of my mind i know i have it! :( I wish i could invent a time machine and go back in time to that night and just erase it so i could be a normal girl again. I could never bring myself to sleep with someone w/o telling them but sometimes i sooooooooo want to! uggghhhh! i just wanna be normal again!!! thanks for letting me vent!

Hey, know that you are doing the right thing when you take the position, "I could never bring myself to sleep with someone w/o telling them." This deserves the highest respect. This means you give a damn and want to be active against the wild fire spread of HSV. The caring has to start with us if we expect others to fight for solutions to herpes. Stay wise and become even wiser as the gift is upon us. I truly believe relief against, transmission, shedding and outbreaks is coming in the NEAR future. Exciting things are being post on Finding a Herpes Cure. Stay strong B24.

Hey Blondii,

I completely know EXACTLY how you're feeling. I would describe myself the same way and there is this really good looking, great guy I have just recently met at my school, and it just completely devastates me to know that I am going to have to tell him this, especially since we have been somewhat intimate already (kissing, using hands...ya know). Before I would have been so excited and happy about everything, but now I am almost considering telling him that it just won't work so I don't even have to go through with it (I know...it sounds terrible). I almost break down in tears every day now just thinking that I'm not the same person anymore, and won't have the carefree intimate life I want to (with a long-term partner). It's like this wound has just been re-opened again and this great time in my life makes me feel miserable :( I'm so sorry that you're feeling that way because I totally know, it feels terrible. But vent as much as you need to and just know that there's someone else going through the exact same thing...hopefully that helps a little :)

      So ur saying the herbalife was the key?? Olive leaf extract and pro biotic are good? How many mgs of Lysine did you take a day?

      hello all, update... so the white ulcer inside started around january 4... and today it is still there... no burning while i pee, just a constant mild irritation feel, no other symptoms i went back to get retested 2/12 so 2.5 months after exposure... including HSV, HIV, gon, chlam, everything came back negative... the doctor thinks it's some form of chlamydia, he gave my doxy for 10 days is it too soon to tell if i have HSV? is it possible to have an ulcer inside the urethra and be fungal or bacterial?

      Probably not many.  I'm going to change my twitter symbol to the copper ribbon at least.

      okay! I guess I will just start at the basic dosage of vitamin C and go up every week little ? I take 1500 mg of super lysine like the bottle says and it still gives me gas and diarrhea. hoping it will pass if not I'll drop down to 2 a day! I really appreciate the advice! i know we would all.do ANYTNING to not have OB  at the moment idc about stigmas od boyfriends or dating or sex....I just care about FEELING healthy in my own skin. this is my one and only life

      That sounds like a good place to begin.  The lysine worked really well for me for about a year and a half.  Then things got steadily worse for me and nothing worked until vitamin C.  My immune system is not that great even tho i take care of myself, so u may have good luck if u have a decent one.  With the vitamin c, u must 1) take it at intervals throughout the day, not all at once 2) dont increase the amount u r taking too fast 3) it will give u gas at higher doses and even diarrhea if u go crazy with it. These r signs to lower your dose!  If u can just control your OB's with vitamin c and lysine or anything else, maybe a cure will finally become available.
