I thought i was never going to find someone

When i first found out i had gh about 5 months ago i was completly broken i honestly gave up on life! Btw how the heck can u change ur name on this??? Well I'm not completly come to terms with it but on my search for actual people close to.my area i decided to try one of those online dating websites-strictly looking for friends.

Well i started talkin to a guy and in less than a month-we both can't belive how quickly we started liking each other. We havent even met face to face yet(hopefully this weekend:D) The special thing about this is that we've learned to like each other for ourselves. Its nothing physical. Yet i truley care about him and he says he feels the same and he's one of those guys who really does not deserve this(his ex cheated on him)

honestly i had kinda resigned myself that after this i wld b alone forever -no one wld want me once they knew i was sick. But he himself is sick he knows what its like to b in my shoes and its so great to b understood!!! I had my first ob since i was diagnosed recently and he did not let me get down about it. He gives me so much support and hope i really hope that when we finally meet face to face that the connection we feel over the phone is there as well :) i kno this is kinda sappy and we're both afraid of getting ahead of ourselves but the connection is there!

I'm glad please don't lose hope! I didn't really have to go through the talk with him because he also has gh so i can't help you there :/ sorry but i met him at a dating site strictly for ppl who have this or other stds. Be careful out there though. U have to realize that some people have this for a reason. But this also helps u see that relationships arent games or jst for alittle while. Once you comit to being with someone and theyr goin through this with you...you may just b in it for the long run. There are plenty of dating sites for ppl like us. If you're not ready to date you can still meet people that are looking for friends who can relate. Good luck out there dont ever give up! :)

This is an inspiring thread to read. Yes, do not give up hope. Life is still very good, and little virus does not define who we are as people. I believe there are good people out there and that connections, intimate or not, take time to start and develop. Take care. Best

      Anyone know anything about potential side effects?

      You obviously can’t read. Why don’t you actually read the article, or the excerpt I posted? Here it is even simpler for you: prostaglandins were shown to enhance the spread of herpes virus in cell culture 26 27 and to inhibit interferon production 27 28 and were implicated in the reactivation of herpetic skin lesions.

      Hormones definitely affect HSV outbreaks according to research. I'm a male but on anti-estrogen medication in constant trouble. Have a look at my thread here: https://honeycomb.click/topic/76903-over-4-years-with-hsv-2-symptoms-keep-getting-worse-with-non-stop-outbreaks-despite-suppressive-therapy-need-help/ 

      First page, 8th post with studies about E2 / Progesterone effects on HSV.

      It's getting pretty terrible now, I don't ever remember the last time I was feeling normal. I'm so sick of this constant flu-like feeling that makes me depressed and very unproductive. I have so many ideas and ambitions for life but I end up just doing the bare minimum due to constantly feeling like shit.  A week ago I tried stopping my anti-estrogen medication if that could have been the cause (it states "infection" in the listed, common side effects). Had my hopes up for a day or two but just got another outbreak this week that makes me want to sleep in bed all day. On top of this, now my breasts hurt because of increased E2 levels. 

      I guess I still have some hopes with new research drugs such as Crispr and Amenalief. I would order Amenalief from Japan immediately, but it costs more than my monthly rent.. I might have to start a business on top of my full time job so I can afford it. Better option than self-pity but extra stress will surely not help with the HSV2 ;)

      Probably the therapy with SADBE helps us to develop a partial immune system on HSV. If you use more SADBE you will develop more immune system on HSV. This is most likely a mechanism of action.
