Tips for a newbie

Recommended Posts

Live.around

Hello everyone, 

I've been told by the doctor 5 days ago I have herpes, I was shocked for the first two days, crying in my room. I'm trying to change my mindset now, because I know the more stressed and anxious I become the longer it will take for the symptoms to go away. Any advice on what to do?

Also I haven't told anyone, I don't have a partner. I was trying to tell my brother earlier but I just couldn't say it. That's why I decided to join this forum. I noticed I'm starting to get more isolated, I don't want to talk to anyone, I'm ignoring people's calls. Should I tell someone?

Thank you

This sounds like a surprise. Are you able to share what herpes you have been diagnosed with?

Sorry to hear of your receiving such a diagnosis but trust you have found a great group, which I am new to myself. I have sound solace here and understand how you feel because I continue to feel the same way. Hopefully, the possible cure trials will show promising results, none of us will have to worry about this again, and this forum will continue to be here as a community to share because there is nothing like having people who understand what you are dealing with. But until then know that you will have all of this forum's support and compassion.

Thank you, how are you coping? I'm starting to feel stronger now and my symptoms are almost gone, I just feel a bit weak. I have a doctor appointment next week and then they will tell me what kind of hsv I've got. I don't really understand the difference between them. Hope you are feeling better.

      Right, that's why you spend every waking moment here because you have "PhD's and degrees" That's comical! If you're not messing with someone and hijacking a thread, you get the shakes!

      I wouldn't say HSV is totally harmless at all as it still poses risk for the women who's pregnant/in labor (despite of having antiviral to reduce the risk = it's never 100% risk-free either) + fatal disease to the babies (kiss of death lol..) + small % of people who are immunocompromised might be in danger because of the virus  Even though HSV doesn't kill us but it sure did create lots of inconvenience in our daily lives = Avoiding your favourite food (because of triggers) + disclosing issues in dating + mental stress (because it's incurable + stigma everywhr) + sex issues with loved one (scared of transmission) + dealing with OBs Most doctors (not all) out there only said it's harmless because it won't kill you (they couldn't care less of how you're going to deal or live with it) 🙂  *Some might even not saying anything at all (they just prescribe some med and sent you home) 😐

      Break free Wilsoanus! Accept you are wrong about diagnosing herpes.   theres a world out there for you to join and get a life! I noticed the flurry of new accounts making posts recently that you comment on before others. The original poster then praises you. Nice try creating fake profiles. You are a worse troll than Jay
