I've never posted anything personal online. In fact, I don't even know if I'm doing this right. I just posted a message to myself in fact, instead of posting to the group.

In any case, I've also never felt so alone, isolated, or scared in my life and so thats why I'm here.

I guess I am looking for some feedback from people who are living with herpes to tell me what it's like to live with this. I am in the initial shock of learning about it, and I can't think very clearly right now.

Here is my situation.

I've been married for almost four years. Two months ago I had my first outbreak of herpes, and I was SO sick. I didn't even know I had lymph nodes in that part of my body until they got so swollen and painful. I didn't get blisters, I just got what felt like a painful bug bite. When it happened again 3 weeks ago I went and got tested and then I knew that I had it. My husband has never been tested, and there is no way to know where this came from. Right before I found out I had herpes we had decided to get divorced. Now I will be single with an STD and I can't even begin to express how scared I am. That nobody will ever want to be with me, that I will never have a sexual relationship again. I don't know anyone else with this disease and I don't know how people deal with these feelings. On top of all of this I just found out last night that my husband and another woman have been attracted to each other for months and he was lying to me about his feelings for her. This is a woman I trusted to stay in my house with my husband while I was out of town.

I really don't know how I will get through this.

That sucks... never trust women... jk kinda.....

living with herpes isn't so bad... people these days are pretty accepting... don't let it define who you are... you are still the same person you were before the diagnosis...

      Just another set of supporting articles to a potential release date in 2024 giving hope to sufferers whom the standard of care is currently worthless: Promising Progress in clinical trials for Pritelivir (herpescureadvocacy.com) HSV Treatment Readies for Approval — Precision Vaccinations News

      I have not found a cheaper source for Amenalief, and I've searched high and low. I have a thread called "Pritelivir at Last" you may want to follow as I have a strong belief that It may be available to the public in the summer of 2024 and as I find new info, I update the thread immediately. Now, may I suggest a combination of drugs that several others on this forum have found to be very effective over acyclovir alone? Myself and others have found that taking 40mg of omeprazole (Tagamet @dissolvedo2 ) with 1 gram of Valacyclovir in the morning and 1 gram of Valacyclovir in the evening alone for 3 days have had profound effectiveness at stopping outbreaks in their tracks. I'd like to remind you that I am not a doctor and at best I am personal researcher for what works for me. I @lw@ys share my findings with the forum in the hopes to help others alleviate their suffering. There is another drug combo that I have tried myself as well as others on this forum have tried and that I personally feel is a much more effective for myself. This combo is 1 gram of activated charcoal with 1-gram of valacyclovir in the morning followed by 1 gram of valacyclovir in the evening alone, again for 3 days. I have found that this has reduced my outbreaks to almost only once a year and they are mild at worse. Again, just a reminder that this works for me and may not work for you but I always feel that i have to share this with anyone that cannot get this virus under control so I hope my findings can help those of you who cannot achieve relief with the standard treatment alone. The stronger anti-virals come with risks and if I can help anyone avoid those risks then by all means I feel I have done some good in this world. I only ask that you let me know if either of these suggestions work for you so that I can document it in my notes. Good luck my friend!

      Hi @Anxious 1234 Did you get diagnosis for this?

      Hi @WhatDidIDo2023, hopefully all is well with you and your significant other and are still together.   Did she develop any other symptoms after you mentioned her getting itchiness? Was it determined what you had was contagious? Most likely developed a fungal disease and caused her a yeast or uti
