great info must read for every newly diagnosed
i found this on another sight and I am cross posting it here. It great info. Handbook and video too this is great for all newly diagnosed

this is a free online resource for you and your partner if you haven't read it already. Terri Warren keeps it up to date with the latest information. it has all the basic info on genital herpes you need.

If you don't mind paying money, she also wrote a book this year "the good news about the bad news". It really goes into the psychological side of having herpes more than the free handbook does. There is also a free patient counseling video on her site too if your provider didn't already give you the valtrex herpes packet with the dvd in it -

      @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
