how do i live


Recommended Posts

you do what the rest of us of have done, and continue to do, and are still learning to do. you educate yourself, you take care of yourself, physically and mentally, you come here for support and advice and friendship. you will not be alone forever, there are many success stories here about relationships, old and new. you will not be alone forever unless you choose to be. it can/will be difficult at times, especially in the beginning, but it will get better......promise!!!!:D

It doesn't have to be so hard. You can stand on the shoulders of those who have gone before you. Benefit from the view without doing the hard climb yourself. We're all here for you. Hand holding and all that sort of thing. I feel for you because I was you ten years ago. So let's start by taking the less out of the two words you used, you're left with hope and worth and you're certainly worth my time. On a more practical note I've written some articles on my odyssey

      Hello there @momma267 and welcome. There is no reason to believe that what you have there is other than a pressure sore, something that has emerged from rubbing with clothing or butt cheeks and exacerbated by bacteria or yeast.  Note that the first you’d learn of herpes is unlikely to be on your butt, instead where it enters your body, this is usually within the vaginal lips for females.

      So to begin with, I am 26 and have been with the same partner for 8 years. I have only been with three people ever, one completely protected and the other we were both our firsts. I got this rash on my but while pregnant and my doctor said she was testing for it and I'm so confused. I've had two babies, breastfeed, and never had anything as much as a cold sore. Does this look like something anyone has experienced? I used fragrant soap down there and am hoping it's contact dermatitis or a heat rash from sweating and gaining so much weight.  Advice would be helpful. I'm stressing out a bit as I am pregnant.

      Hi, it is me again, apologies for the recent influx of posts. I've noticed a slightly raised area on the middle of my top lip with what i feel are some bumps. i do have a habit of biting my lips a fair bit and this area is frequented by my teeth. I haven't noticed any unusual/abnormal tingling or burning or pain sensations. the photos are a bit difficult to focus on them but do these seem like the start of cold sores? note: I will be visiting the drs for an std checkup in the coming week. https://imgur.com/gallery/YLVA5us

      To give everyone confidence that it wasn’t herpes related and conclude as the doctor did that it was a dermatitis issue to refer back to the dermatologist to continue with investigations.
