In fair bit of pain and don't feel like me any more.

Hi inky, welcome to the 'club'.

Read all you can about this and you won't be devastated. You will learn that it really is a very common, mostly harmless virus. 80% of adults have it in one form or another.

Come to the "Chat Room", there you will find many nice fellow Herpsters who can offer you their support.

Good luck!

JB

inky I'm pretty new to this too. I just found out 3 weeks ago. I remember clearly the feelings that you are describing. But trust me, you will feel better eventually. Luckily I found this site on the second day that I found out. I learned a bunch of good tips for getting through the pain of the first OB (and mine was BAD), but also learned a lot about how to get through it mentally too. I encourage you to join the chat room. There are a bunch of "old timers" who have had it for a long time... some new timers like me who haven't had it long, but who are now past the devastation phase... and also some people that are brand new to it too. We all understand what you are going through, because we've been there.

I understand. I think that this will make us really take a good look at ourselves and dig deep for the strength to deal with this. I'm educating myself, but making a huge effort to focus on work and projects so as to not spend a lot of time thinking about this. The forum is great, as it's a positive way to be educated and thinking about in an appropriate and positive way.

Thank you both, this is a great place to come and chat. As I have not told anyone...other than the guy who gave it to me...so I have been feeling very alone. I've been on the chat forum and they have been so friendly and answered all my questions. I still feel so weird..and tearful at times, but I think I feel better than yesterday so it's looking better... and I'm only on day 3. Still in pain, but I can deal with that.

Thanks again. XXX

Hey Toot, just sent you a private message.

I do live in Scotland, but am from London, England.

The weather here is great as usual lol....wet and cold....but I wouldn't have it any other way.

So you're from USA? Tell me more.
