Hey, so there aren't many active threads for teens and I think having support for our age group is important, especially since as teenagers we often feel like we're alone as it is. Well, if any of you are Doctor Who fans you may remember this - YANA - You Are Not Alone. We're all in the same boat and I think it'd be great if we got to know each other.

So let's get to know each other! Let's talk about ourselves and our hobbies, figure out what works best for us, and make new friends!

Y'all can call me Annah. I'm from Texas and I love art! I'm 18 years old and about to start college but if you're in high school, I want to hear all about it! I have played piano since I was five. I enjoy going to conventions like Comic Con and A-Kon. I want to travel the world after I graduate college. I'm going to study nursing in college. Science has always interested me and the human body most of all. I very recently got herpes so this is all kind of new to me. I really would like to get to know anyone that would like to get to know me (: best wishes and YANA!!!

Well, I mean, getting to know anyone would be great (: I have no idea about the statistics and no idea where to even start with that.. The internet is so confused so I don't know that I would trust what it says haha

Hey I'm Rocket! 17 years old from Wales - UK, recently diagnosed with H

I LOVE doctor who and actually live in the city it is made. Just the other week they were filming by my old high school (the doctor and clara themselves!!) Also a few weeks before that they were filming in the city center with an army of cybermen!

I really want to go to comic con one day as I'm totally into all of that stuff. Love movies - my life ambition is to be a movie director. Hoping to meet some new friends who are in the same boat - we could all use some support in our situation!

That's so cool that you saw them filming! I've always wanted to visit Europe. I just adore rain and I hear it rains quite a bit there so I think spending a few months there would just be wonderful! I used to be involved in theatre but I've never gotten into film. That whole industry is just so broad I wouldn't even know where to start haha I think it's awesome that you're going to pursue your dreams! I always knew I wanted to help people and above all see the world and nursing is a way for me to do that so I guess it is my dream job haha Thanks so much for replying and I hope we get to be a close family! YANA!

For sure!!! Something I've noticed with teens and myself is the feeling that we are the only one going through certain things so networking is key! Finding other's that understand you is so important so that's why I wanted this thread (: I also just love making friends!

      hello all, update... so the white ulcer inside started around january 4... and today it is still there... no burning while i pee, just a constant mild irritation feel, no other symptoms i went back to get retested 2/12 so 2.5 months after exposure... including HSV, HIV, gon, chlam, everything came back negative... the doctor thinks it's some form of chlamydia, he gave my doxy for 10 days is it too soon to tell if i have HSV? is it possible to have an ulcer inside the urethra and be fungal or bacterial?

      Probably not many.  I'm going to change my twitter symbol to the copper ribbon at least.

      okay! I guess I will just start at the basic dosage of vitamin C and go up every week little ? I take 1500 mg of super lysine like the bottle says and it still gives me gas and diarrhea. hoping it will pass if not I'll drop down to 2 a day! I really appreciate the advice! i know we would all.do ANYTNING to not have OB  at the moment idc about stigmas od boyfriends or dating or sex....I just care about FEELING healthy in my own skin. this is my one and only life

      That sounds like a good place to begin.  The lysine worked really well for me for about a year and a half.  Then things got steadily worse for me and nothing worked until vitamin C.  My immune system is not that great even tho i take care of myself, so u may have good luck if u have a decent one.  With the vitamin c, u must 1) take it at intervals throughout the day, not all at once 2) dont increase the amount u r taking too fast 3) it will give u gas at higher doses and even diarrhea if u go crazy with it. These r signs to lower your dose!  If u can just control your OB's with vitamin c and lysine or anything else, maybe a cure will finally become available.
