Newbie! could def. use some support

Recommended Posts

teachme2love

New to the site and the diagnosis. I thought about finding a support group in my area, but after reading some of the stories on here, I figure that this would be the best place for me to start. I'm 25 years old and have been through a lot of storms; I made a lot of mistakes and never had any regrets until recently. I would be handling this a lot better if there were a cure. How do I go on?????? :confused:

You will learn that the stigma about this virus is complete nonsense, and the medical issue is usually a small one in peoples lives. The virus has been hosting on humans for over 4500 years. Long long long time. I have carried HSV2 for over 32 years and it has been a minor issue in my life.

Hi teachme2love,

I'm new as well. I think once you get past social stigma your A okay. It will get easier with time.

Thanks for responding. I think right now its more so of having the actual symptoms, because I see it and feel it on a daily basis. Once I stop obing so much I'm sure I won't think about it as often and will get to the point where it only plays a minor part in my life. The social stigma might be one of those things that takes a while. I was okay with being single when the ball was in my court; now I'm even more scared of rejection than ever before. Looking forward to the time when it becomes easier!

      @WilsoInAus thanks for the clarification. I am currently taking into account all possibilities that i might encounter, since my fiance is positive HSV-1. I am preparing myself for the future, if I however eventually get infected from him. Im on the brink . We will have an appointment with a Doctor on friday, to justify more about this and I am so anxious of knowing what the Dr will say. I am scare it might effect my decision of marrying him. How I wish this virus could be kill, how I wish life hasn't be this cruel to us. The day for us to tie the knot is just around the corner, everything had been prepared and we are tested with this news. Im showing my support to him right now but deep down, Im sooo scared. It's truly an adventure

      Note that it’s not an infection as we know it the eye, these are caused by bacteria. Sometimes though the virus will attack the cornea and cause issues. It is estimated about 1 in 50,000 people per year will suffer some vision impairment from HSV-1. However these people are almost always not treated with antivirals where success appears to be over 90% for preventing permanent damage.

      Hi @patpat I encountered same situation like yours. I really want to know what is your next step. Did you finally get married? How is your life now? Any advice?  I know this is an old thread but this is related to me. Would be so much relieve to be able to talk to someone in the same shoe. Hope you still buzzing around honeycomb

      BHT has helped me soooo much! When I first got infected my outbreaks were constant .. one would heal up and there comes another ... it was terrible . I was so fuxking depressed and miserable. I cut out the “trigger foods” took vitamin c and lysine .. drank apple cider vinegar .. nothing worked until BHT!!! Now that I take BHT i rarely have Outbreaks. If I do it’s because I sometimes forget and skip taking it .. or I eat some trigger food + forget the Bht .. but even then my outbreaks are SOOOO a mild compared to before . I’ve had outbreaks that have disappeared in a day . Sometimes I up my dosage on BHT when I do have a mild outbreak , and apply topically. It really has been such a blessing to find out about BHT
