Week 1, since I've found out I have Herpes.. I wish I could do something other than cry, I'm crying because I'm so ashamed so disgusted not of the herpes.... But of myself.

I can play the victim and Say "Hey Im a Good girl" I can say "I didn't know this could happen".. But that's not the case.. since 15 I've been looking for Love and all the wrong places I've let men of "all ages" do things to me because in my young mind sex was All I had to offer... I've had 4 STDs 2 are from someone I loved and 2 are from some one I can't remember... And now at 25 I thought I was so much smarter than That 15yr old me but I was not!! You can Judge because I judge myself daily no longer finding reasons to live because my problems seem so much bigger than me.. I dont have anyone to tell I have herpes, no one that I could trust with such a secret,  I haven't been able to say "HEY I HAVE HERPES AND IM SAD" well until now..

Hi there, 

First off, hugs to you!

Secondly, and I don't speak for anyone else here, but I believe that this is a common emotion for most people when they find out. Hell! I had a mental breakdown while making dinner one night and ended up on my kitchen floor sobbing. 

The most important thing to remember is that this does not define you as a person. You are still just as beautiful, intelligent,funny, and amazing as you were before this diagnosis. 

I encourage you to look up the perspective on YouTube. She has an amazing channel with advice and tips. Watching those videos when I was first diagnosed and looking at this forum really helped me to realize A: I am not alone in this and B: this does not make me "dirty" or make me undeserving of something/someone amazing in my life. 

The BEST thing you can do for you right now is to take care of yourself.  Proper eating, sleeping,exercise and yes, if you need it, telling someone about this. Even if it is a therapist/counciler. 

It's only been a month and a half for me and I still struggle sometimes. 


Love yourself and the rest will follow.

      Just another set of supporting articles to a potential release date in 2024 giving hope to sufferers whom the standard of care is currently worthless: Promising Progress in clinical trials for Pritelivir (herpescureadvocacy.com) HSV Treatment Readies for Approval — Precision Vaccinations News

      I have not found a cheaper source for Amenalief, and I've searched high and low. I have a thread called "Pritelivir at Last" you may want to follow as I have a strong belief that It may be available to the public in the summer of 2024 and as I find new info, I update the thread immediately. Now, may I suggest a combination of drugs that several others on this forum have found to be very effective over acyclovir alone? Myself and others have found that taking 40mg of omeprazole (Tagamet @dissolvedo2 ) with 1 gram of Valacyclovir in the morning and 1 gram of Valacyclovir in the evening alone for 3 days have had profound effectiveness at stopping outbreaks in their tracks. I'd like to remind you that I am not a doctor and at best I am personal researcher for what works for me. I @lw@ys share my findings with the forum in the hopes to help others alleviate their suffering. There is another drug combo that I have tried myself as well as others on this forum have tried and that I personally feel is a much more effective for myself. This combo is 1 gram of activated charcoal with 1-gram of valacyclovir in the morning followed by 1 gram of valacyclovir in the evening alone, again for 3 days. I have found that this has reduced my outbreaks to almost only once a year and they are mild at worse. Again, just a reminder that this works for me and may not work for you but I always feel that i have to share this with anyone that cannot get this virus under control so I hope my findings can help those of you who cannot achieve relief with the standard treatment alone. The stronger anti-virals come with risks and if I can help anyone avoid those risks then by all means I feel I have done some good in this world. I only ask that you let me know if either of these suggestions work for you so that I can document it in my notes. Good luck my friend!

      Hi @Anxious 1234 Did you get diagnosis for this?

      Hi @WhatDidIDo2023, hopefully all is well with you and your significant other and are still together.   Did she develop any other symptoms after you mentioned her getting itchiness? Was it determined what you had was contagious? Most likely developed a fungal disease and caused her a yeast or uti
