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.

      Anyone know anything about potential side effects?

      You obviously can’t read. Why don’t you actually read the article, or the excerpt I posted? Here it is even simpler for you: prostaglandins were shown to enhance the spread of herpes virus in cell culture 26 27 and to inhibit interferon production 27 28 and were implicated in the reactivation of herpetic skin lesions.

      Hormones definitely affect HSV outbreaks according to research. I'm a male but on anti-estrogen medication in constant trouble. Have a look at my thread here: https://honeycomb.click/topic/76903-over-4-years-with-hsv-2-symptoms-keep-getting-worse-with-non-stop-outbreaks-despite-suppressive-therapy-need-help/ 

      First page, 8th post with studies about E2 / Progesterone effects on HSV.

      It's getting pretty terrible now, I don't ever remember the last time I was feeling normal. I'm so sick of this constant flu-like feeling that makes me depressed and very unproductive. I have so many ideas and ambitions for life but I end up just doing the bare minimum due to constantly feeling like shit.  A week ago I tried stopping my anti-estrogen medication if that could have been the cause (it states "infection" in the listed, common side effects). Had my hopes up for a day or two but just got another outbreak this week that makes me want to sleep in bed all day. On top of this, now my breasts hurt because of increased E2 levels. 

      I guess I still have some hopes with new research drugs such as Crispr and Amenalief. I would order Amenalief from Japan immediately, but it costs more than my monthly rent.. I might have to start a business on top of my full time job so I can afford it. Better option than self-pity but extra stress will surely not help with the HSV2 ;)

      Probably the therapy with SADBE helps us to develop a partial immune system on HSV. If you use more SADBE you will develop more immune system on HSV. This is most likely a mechanism of action.
