Positive Thoughts


Recommended Posts

My story is a complicated one so instead of walking you through it all let's just start right here...right now.

I've been told I'm positive for ghsv1 and I just started valacyclovir today after a week of l-lysine, red marine algae, and burning my vagina with lemon balm oil extract. I couldn't sit or work..or parent my son. I've cried my eyes out and I've prayed, I'm still praying.

I believe in Jesus Christ and I know it's important to monitor how we think about the trials we face in life. Thoughts of worthlessness, hopelessness, and sadness will do nothing for your mind, soul or body. We all took different paths to arrive at this place together, none of us are alone or worthless or hopeless. 

I believe God is a healer. I believe prayer and scripture readings as well as positive words and affirmations have a profound effect on our minds and bodies. The Bible is full of stories of heartbreak, adversity, restoration, and redemption. It brings me comfort to know mankind has overcome trials throughout the ages. We are not the first and we will not be the last to deal with issues and illness. Even if you don't believe in divine healing I encourage everyone to take time to themselves and read the Bible or meditate on the good things in your life. There are so many things worth while in this life - like cupcakes...with sprinkles.

Forgive the person who gave this to you. Perhaps they didn't know or perhaps they were like so many of us here - scared of lonely and wanting desperately to be accepted without judgement. In this life we love the ones we should forget and forget the ones we should love, it's a very serious human condition. So, forgive yourself for loving the wrong person. Forgive yourself for whatever decision you made that put you on this path, God still has a plan for you.

You will love again. You will date again. You will smile again....I promise. 

If you've found love AFTER your diagnosis please share your story and encourage us all.

Thank you for your post. I'm still struggling with being diagnosed and my relationship with God. I thought I'd forgiven myself but I get back into this rut and become angry again. I'm bitter. I was supposed to go to prayer tonight but changed my mind because I'm angry again, bitter. The guy who I believe gave it to me has reached out, not taking any ownership (he claims he's negative), and it's angered me. I wanted closure even though he didn't say much. I know this is the time to rely on God but I feel so hurt. I know this is consequences to my actions but it's hard for me to believe right now. But I appreciate your post because it was what I needed. I have to stop being stubborn and appreciate what I have. Thank you.

@ConfusedandHurt I'm glad it helped! I skipped prayer meeting yesterday but I spent time alone talking to God, it helps. Whenever I get too down I remember God saw this day from the beginning and He made provisions for me. His word says He forgives our iniquities and heals all our diseases and if we confess our transgressions He is faithful and just to forgive us. So, yeah these are consequences to our actions but those actions did not surprise God and Jesus already paid the cost for our sins on the cross. Let's just keep encouraging each other and going to God on this thing. As for the guy, do try to forgive him and release that negative energy, perhaps he never showed any symptoms? Did his doctor do blood work or simply tell him he couldn't test without physical symptoms?

@luvurself16 Lol, did the peppermint oil work? The lemon balm oil sure didn't. Somehow I convinced myself that the burn was a good thing. Reminds me of my childhood when my mom would tell me the burn of alcohol meant it was healing my scraped knee...not true mom, not true.

@HealedHopeful he claimed he was tested but I don't believe him. When I first received the news about myself, he barely answered my calls. Then when I told him, he didn't sound like he was running to the doctors. Then when I lashed out he says my results say I'm negative. I don't believe he purposefully gave it to me but I do feel like I've been thrown aside because he stopped talking to me for 6 months. His actions just seem real suspicious. But I feel like everyone can move on but I can't because now I have baggage.

Tea tree oil. Do not use it straight, directly on skin unless you know that you won't have a bad reaction to it. Dilute 1 part tea tree oil with 2 parts olive oil or coconut oil. Use a cotton swab and test it on the inside of your elbow. Wait 5 minutes. If no bad reaction you can try it on your lesions. Use a fresh cotton swab each time and don't double dip into your solution. There should be no pain and it should be soothing, for me dulls pain immediately and is said to speed up healing. Can use several times per day.

It doesn't matter who gave this to you. It will do you no good to dwell on it. Move on with your life and heal yourself. You will be ok.

      Good morning. My name is Marlena and I come from Poland. Sorry, my English is average. For two years I have been in a relationship with a man, for a year and a half I have been struggling with intimate problems. On average, my intimate condition is getting worse every month. Then I feel itching, redness, swelling around the entrance to the vagina, small blisters (not always). Most often it is only red and swollen, itches and then disappears. This state lasts 3-4 days. I come from a small town, doctors don't know what it is. They say it's 'skin irritation'. They prescribe moisturizing creams with lactic acid, probiotics. It doesn't help. I did a blood test for HSV on my own, which is very expensive in Poland, but it does not separate HSV1 from HSV2. The doctor, when he shows these results, says that it's not herpes, but irritation. I would like to add that in the past I suffered from herpes on the lips, then it was a 'scab'. There has never been a scab in an intimate area. Sometimes there are blisters that last 1-2 days, but not always. So what do high blood test results mean? I would like to add that in Poland people do not talk about the HSV virus. It's just that sometimes someone has it on their lips and that's it. Results translation: IgM HSV 1/2: questionable IgG HSV 1/2: result above the measuring range https://files.fm/f/4cpu7uee4

      This is my first time posting here. Im generally pretty anxious when it comes to anything to do with health conditions etc. For context I have had jock itch and fungal infections previously on my buttcrack. I have had 0 new sexual partners and I am not concerned about my girlfriend cheating at all. 4 days ago my balls began itching and red pretty much all over, as you can see some general flakeyness and what looks to be a lesion I noticed on Monday when I checked them out. My partner and I do get cold sores from time to time so the anxious part of me is concerned this could be herpes, but at the same time could be some sort of fungal infection. My doctor cant see me until tomorrow so I just have to worry until then. There is no pain and nothing on the penis or anywhere else, just general itchiness. Any ideas if this is herpes or not?

      Yes, but every married person who I found out about that has this waited 6-8 months into the relationship to disclose it. But maybe you're right. If I had told her 6-7 months in, she'd still have Googled it and flipped out, and maybe it would have been harder then. I don't know. I don't see myself going through this level of pain and rejection so easily next time. I really don't. I'm taking the meds. I use protection. It's been almost a decade since I've had it so I'm not worried about shedding or passing it on so easily. British studies confirm that the first 2 years are the most contagious and we're passed that. I'm just over this. I've never been in so much emotional pain in my life.
