I am so tired of these outbreaks

Recommended Posts

I have been diagnosed for over a year and I have had an outbreak each month sometimes even twice a month. I am very ashamed that I contracted this disease. It has impacted my life emotionally, physically and mentally. I wished there was a cure. This was the worst thing that could have happened to me because I suffer from severe depression and anxiety disorder. I always worry and stress about everything. This only adds to the outbreaks. I cannot seem to tell anyone that I have the disease so I withdrawal from having a relationship. I can't go on letting herpes control my life. I joined this group for support, to learn more and make changes to deal with this condition. Just don't know where to start.

Talk about it...to someone. I've had it for three months and have had four outbreaks, including one right now (and I take suppressive medication too). I've told plenty of people and it helps a lot...don't feel ashamed. There's nothing to be ashamed about. You got unlucky...all of us on this website have...no more, no less. It sucks...and it's definitely worth getting bummed out over...but ashamed? That part will go away if you start telling people...and if they react poorly...fuck them...

Stress really has an effect on outbreaks! I battle with depression and I really have to work hard at getting myself in a good place mentally during an outbreak. Always put yourself first during an outbreak and relax as much as possible. If you are that stressed out, maybe talk to your doctor about going on anti-anxiety meds or anti-depressants to help with your mental state.

      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.
