I'm really just looking for someone to talk to. I got diagnosed in February and things really haven't been the same. Its hard to relate to people when they just don't understand.

how have things changed for you so far? I am just trying to get adjusted myself. I am 21/m/ny but have a place in florida too. I go back and forth between being okay and not okay but I have only told my mom (who is one of my best friends we have been through a lot) and my best friend throughout my whole life. I can't tell any of my college friends and its hard to be around them sometimes with the jokes and the carefree lifestyle they all have when I have this on my plate

Hi Beautiful disaster.

I'm also 24/f/fl. I was diagnosed today. I've done alot of crying. I'm married, mother of two. A 4year old daughter, and a almost 14month old son. I'm going through all sorts of emotions ranging from depression, and anxiety, to confusion and worry. I'm scared to touch my kids, to change my son's diaper. Like, what if I don't wash my hands wll enough and I spread it to my son. I'm so stressed out with this its making my face break out, which makes me stress even more wondering if my breakout is actually a BREAKOUT! I was so worried about what Hubs would say but, he's actually really understanding and is taking this much much better than what I thought.. Though he probably has it too at this point. I noticed the ob the day after intercourse with him.

      Diagnosed a year ago. Tried suppression therapy to no avail. Dr prescribed 500mg Valtrex increased to 1000g no help. Two HIV test negative. The worst experience ever. Tried oil of oregano, olive leaf extract, lysine, Multi vitamin. Just read because I’m peri menopausal it might be hormones. Outbreaks are constant hsv 2.  If anyone can can relate, I’m pleading for insight.

      Hi walkthetalk can you please give us more details about your experience with synergy as for how long you been in it, you mention you didn’t get outbreaks do you still feel the flares etc, are you planing to get retested?

      The medications are mainly based on disrupting replication. I am not aware of medications for herpes with the purpose of reducing antibodies directly. Do you have an example?

      I've been reading up on alot of this and I'm just curious about the meds they offer here. They stop it from replicating and others keep the antibodies down. Just a thought and I'd appreciate any input on this. Wouldn't you much rather have high antibodies for this so the immune system can keep it at bay. Or am I all the way off?
