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.

      There’s new treatment available for cmv and shingles but nothing yet for hsv. It’s like a slap in the face!

      Any ladies out there suffered with this? There seems to be little information about it on the net. Thanks in advance.

      Rejection will be there during your whole life. But not because of herpes, also because of how you are, at work, at your private life. It's just a part of life! Just have in mind that if people reject you because of stupid little things like herpes, they are not even worth continuing as a part of your life.  I think the best way of fighting the stigma is to be 100% convinced that there is NO NEED to feel ashamed, bad, disgusting because of herpes. I one day understood some very important thing: I did NOTHING differently than my friends who don't have herpes. I had sex (they did), sometimes with protection (they did), sometimes without (they did). I had ONS (they did), I had long term relationships (they did), I received wonderful and less wonderful oral sex, haha (they did). The only difference is that I got genital herpes from someone who didn't even know. So why exactly should I feel disgusting or bad?  And also: Know the facts. That is the safest way to destroy stigma in my opinion. If someone tells you: "Yuck! Herpes is disgusting!" you can answer: "I don't think that 80 % of the world population are disgusting because they have a virus in their bodies."  I also recommend this video from "Laureen". She has really great videos about herpes!

      Thanks for the comments. Looks like the only think that might have a shot at helping us in the future is the drug Pritlevir then.

      @PeaceNeeded no there is zero relationship between penile spines and HSV-2, no such variant is possible.
