Butterfly of the Moment

I would focus on becoming right with yourself first. I know it's hard. And I know it's scary. You'll get through this. You have to accept you still have a lot to offer...you need to believe in your self worth. Because once you have it, it will be a lot easier to date again and your overall quality of life will improve. Someone will want you again. Whenever I feel down, I always refer to this link to give me much needed perspective: http://www.hsvblog.org/herpes-simplex-virus-hsv-101/

Some people only will use dating sites or find people who have the herpes virus. But a lot of people do not. Please don't feel you have to limit yourself.

Yeah, I understand completely. Broke up with my girl too and say to myself, "what now?" It's scary for me too when I feel like I might end up getting rejected because of this. I guess you want know unless you try because I know there good understanding people out there. Doesn't mean I believe it lol. *sigh*

      Postherpetic neuralgia 15% of the time is hsv1. It lives in your nerve ganglia. I don't see why that's so far fetched when it is well supported by research.

      I have HSV & foot nerve pain. I am 100% sure it's from HSV. My Infectious Disease Dr, very well known in NJ, said it is a possibility, he is not ruling it out. There are many strains of HSV & the one I have affected my feet.  I take L-Lysine, Daily Complete Vitamins & Vitamin B-12. My heart goes out to you. I will pray you find relief. Keep your head up & think positive. Sending hugs. Keep us posted

      The chance of getting some HPV-Strain in life (as a person that is not abstinent) is literally about 99% i read. 
      And in 90% of cases the virus is gone after 2 years. And the chance of cancer is looooots smaller than 10% - you just go get your pap smears, so if something happens they know right away and they can treat it. Getting a positive pap smear at some point in life is super-common as a woman.

      I'd like to thank everyone for their input. Let's please keep things civil. I am going to continue with Acyclovir, until I feel my symptoms disappear. If they do not subside, I plan on consulting a physician again.

      So... this would be a revolutionary simple Solution, to an extreme problem: transmitting and getting STD's where condoms don't help.  And people don't give a fuck and noone answers.    Now we just have to find out if it works.  - Does it hinder herpes transmissions (and perhaps also other stuff like hpv) - What is the cost (per sex) - What is the practicality
