Just wanted to share a quote with people in the same boat as me :)

"I was sad, because I had no shoes until I met a man who had no feet."

Jack Handey

This quote stuck out to me and I immediately thought of herpes. It pretty much means someone out there has it a lot worse than you do. I mean I'm sad that I have herpes but there are so many more people with much bigger issues. You might be sad about herpes but when you meet someone with something like HIV or cancer and they're still shining and living life to the fullest. You appreciate things a lot more.

I just read this to my boyfriend. He lost his first wife to cancer so my having herpes is NOTHING to him. Great quote.

That's actually one of the quotes I sent my daughter when she was going through a tough time and I was texting her a quote a day. It's a particularly good one I think. Especially as it's hard to keep perspective sometimes.

      Like alot of jobs people keep going even if they are against what they have to do.its money for them and if they don't have an ob or positive blood results they will carry on

      Hi guy,  Just diagnosed and trying to move on with my life. Understanding to prevent further outbreak, we would be best to stay actively healthy both mentally and physically.  Due to my nature of work, I am always under pressure. Should I plan on quitting and look for another job that is well suitable for my current condition or is manageable?  :,)

      I have no choice, I have tried everything on this planet regarding holistic approach. Nothing work so far. Now I am on Neem, does not work. I just keep trying new things as I go along. I believe some like me actually have a very strong immune system (have not been sick since I can remember, maybe 9-10 years) but my immune system does not recognise my HSV, so it just does what it wants, thats why the continuous OB's.  Don't think about ending life, life is to priceless. This is not cancer. Try to date a guy who have it as well, then there would be something you could fight together.

      One of the best gurus There are a few who have been diagnosed in here. You can get any of his books used. I think the Fibromyalgia Solution is best. Only 45 % of people have nerve pain.  If not for you maybe it will serve someone else! Don't overwhelm self and get in a group if it doesn't weigh you down
