You are not sick or diseased or poisoned. 80% of the populations had Hsv in some form or another. Many people never experience symptoms and don't even know that they have it. You are still you. You have to learn to love yourself again and believe me I know this is difficult. Take it from me. I contracted it from my ex fiancé of 7 years after he cheated on me. The betrayal hurt worse than the herpes and I blamed myself. I was depressed and suicidal. After a few months of self loathing I decided to take my life back and I started to love myself again. I workout try to keep stress levels down and eat as healthy as possible. This site saved my life. I ended up meeting the love of my life and now I believe h was the best thing to happen to me. I have experienced more happiness in the past two years than I ever have in my entire life. The symptoms have also disappeared and honestly I don't even think about it. I know it's hard at first but I promise you it gets better. Try to find a local support group in your area. That helped me immensely. Good luck it will get better. Much love Kate xoxoxo

Hi Castiel - I am new too, and feel the same way. The one thing that I keep thinking of, is that this is not a health issue. It won't kill us. I also talked to a friend who told me - if you found the love of your life and he had a cold sore, would you never kiss him EVER again? I mean - I too feel sad, overwhelmed, but what is helping me is looking for positive quotes, and not to keep letting my mind run crazy with negativity.

      Have you received any clarification on these signs and symptoms? I have been experiencing the same thing with the nerve pain in the same approximate locations and was wondering if you had found anything out about it being related to HSV-2?

      Hi all  thanks for getting back to me. I had a swab and it came back negative . But I’m still not convinced. I’m gonna see a specialist I think . I’ve taken photos and to me there look like scabs healing.    I am now freaking out more because I have started a new relationship and the other day she broke out in 3 cold sores. She said this is the first time this has happened. I feel ashamed I may have given this to her . I have spoken to her and told her my fears and this may have now ruined my relationship.  I don’t know if it’s ok to share pictures on here but if it’s ok I would like to do this and get peoples thoughts

      Hey @K1009 I can report that this is entirely consistent with a recent infection. Your body can take a few months to generate and stabilise the immune responses. The outbreaks can be a bit unrelenting during this period. Your body will get in top of it. Is this a genital outbreak from oral sex?
