Welcome to the site. It does get better with time. Learn all you can about this and you will realize it is no big deal.

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

Good luck!

Butterfly of the Moment

Hello. The first few months are the hardest. Your life is still going to go on. I joined this site first thing when I got diagnosed and it was amazing how helpful it was for me simply because the knowledge that you are not alone will ease some of the pain. Educate yourself on this virus so you have all the facts. I find that the more you know about something, the less scary it is. And this virus can't do as much harm to you as your mind will and can. But I hope you don't let this stop you. I've had this virus over 2 years now and I am still adjusting. I am finally becoming the woman I'm suppose to be. I have had the same boyfriend for a few years now. We went on a break and I obtained genital herpes from someone else. I didn't think it would happen to me, but it did. When I had to tell my boyfriend what happened it was the hardest thing I ever had to do. When I told him he was so angry and heartbroken, but it had nothing to do with the herpes. It was because I had sex with someone else (yes we were on a break, but still). He didn't even bat an eyelash at the herpes thing. He said that he loves me too much to let something stupid like herpes stop him from being with me. I hope you understand what it's like to love like that and that there are people who are mature and can realize a true problem and know there are worst things in the world that we should worry about. By the way, this link really gave me a realistic perspective on things. READ IT and feel better.

By the way, Maine is insanely beautiful! Visited it for the first time this year and fell in love :)

      I am taking the same medication, and I have noticed that on occasion, it does come back, not as horrible as when it first began happening, but like little patches, small areas. I'd just refill my prescription, take as directed, and it'd go away. I took my last pill today, and I have been talking vitamins every day. Did not know about elderberry, I've been taking tumeric, B12, echinacea, vitamin C, lysine, cranberry and anything else that helps promote immune health as well as skin.
