New to the board; Three year sufferer

Recommended Posts



I'll start with this: I am not very impressed how the forum logs you out... I practically wrote a novel for everyone and pressed 'submit new thread' to learn that I had been logged out. The forum really needs to look into a draft section, and if there is one, can someone tell me how to use it?

Since I am impatient after writing for over an hour, I am going explain in point form.

My situation

+ I was infected three years ago

+ Have never had blood test or swab, however, me and my GP have came to the conclusion that we know what it is.

+ Have been prescribe Valtrex once.

+ Used to be promiscuous, rebellious and experimented with drugs and alcohol.

+ Started out with one genital wart.

+ Progressively symptoms worsened... I used to be depressed and didn't care about my life at one time... After showering, I used to use one towel and wiped my whole body... Spreading to my chest, face, arms and hands...

+ I want to join the board for insight and to deal with people who share what I have.

+ I drink occasionally, work out and generally fatigue my body often... I am looking for remedies and ways of dealing with outbreaks because they affect me quite often... Especially since I've been healthier.

+ My last breakout was a week or two ago on my face... It happened during a weeks vacation... I hate how the virus flares up at certain times, so unpredictable.

I had much more detail in my first thread that wasn't posted.

We're all in this together... Right?

I have had that experience also, here and on other sites & blogs. My suggestion would be to compose your document in WORD, save, and then copy & paste to compose on this site. That way if it deletes your document you will be able to retrieve it.

I do empathize because I have written very detailed responses to others, and when they disappeared I figured it was not meant to be.

Anyway, please let me know how I can help.

      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.
