Where's the cure already?!

Recommended Posts

trying2livenormal

Listen. I am so sick of this f***ing disease destroying my life. My outbreaks are constant despite meds, herbs, oils, exercise, and diet adjustments. NOTHING makes it better. I would love to be cured. I'm sure everyone on here feels the same way. But, I would take a preventative vaccine in a heartbeat. At least my outbreaks wouldn't be contagious. I am so sick and tired of all of these companies and governments p*ssyfooting around. Hep C has a cure now! Where the F is our cure?! I can't even fathom sex because I have blisters all of the time. That makes it super easy to convince a non-H guy to want to date me (sarcasm included). I'm angry. I'm angry at men because having sex with my cheating boyfriend got me here in this situation today. I'm angry at this virus for torturing me with nonstop itching and blisters. Just when I think I can live a somewhat normal life again, another blister pops up. I'm angry that there isn't enough research and never has been to work on a cure or a preventative vaccine. I'm angry that I'm getting older and have been suffering from this thing for almost 10 years! AND my symptoms got worse as time went on, not better like people say. Only recently since the drug patent of valtrex ended and scientists discovered people were getting genital HSV1 has there been an uptick in attention. I want a cure. I need at least a preventative vaccine. Not in 5 years. In 5 years I will be old as F. I'm on the cusp right now. I need this sh** fixed today people! Heck, I'd settle for next year. I pray my nieces and nephews never get this disease and experience the physical and emotional torture that I have been and continue to go through. F this virus!

Maybe it's just me but I get the feeling you're pissed off. OK, OK just kidding around with you. If it makes you feel any better, I've had ghsv2 for 35 years and I'm 63.

Generally, no matter how much we scream, the cure will come when it comes. In the mean time, we'll all have to manage it. So why don't we focus on that for now.
Please discuss your lifestyle; exercise, foods you eat, and most importantly, your stress level. Let's start there.

Your current status ie anger stress etc will not be helping control your symptoms.  How long have you had it for. What supplements are you taking.  Maybe your diet and exercise is not helping. I know one person who decided to get fit and healthy and had heaps of outbreaks.  Have you looked at some kind of therapy as well to manage your mindset because that can also help you or even meditation

Haha! Yeah, I'm pissed. It's hard to stay positive when you have back to back blisters on your chacha though, ya know! So I just felt like having a verbal temper tantrum on this site about my frustrations. 

I'm a bedside nurse, so I know that doesn't help my stress level. Trying to get out of bedside now, but just waiting for the right job. Cardio helps my stress, so I don't believe stopping that would benefit me. I work out 3x a week. I can't do yoga. I find it boring. I currently take valtrex, b complex vitamins and hair/skin/nail vitamins daily. I used tee tree oil to burn the blister bastards off. Sometimes it works better than others. And I use coconut oil when the itching gets unbearable. I tried lysine in the past and it was a waste. I'm not even sure the valtrex does anything... I know acyclovir was a dud.  For food I eat chicken, turkey, fish, multigrains, fruits, veggies... and the dreaded but delicious chocolate. I've heard chocolate isn't good for us H'ers but it makes me happy and is one thing I will never give up. I tried to let it go a few times, but that resulted in binge eating. HA! I haven't tried bovine closotrum yet. Seen some people post about it and how well it works. So maybe I will try that next.

I'm pretty bummed about how these vaccine studies have been going, too. Dr. Halford was so convinced his would work, and I believed him. Although the final results aren't out, you'd have it admit people's posts about their trial experience have been a let down. True, we have to wait for official results... but I'm feeling quite discouraged. I was looking forward to a vacation/vaccine in St. Kitts!

I understand constant obs would get you down.  Ive always had issues with my muscles since meningoccal disease 15 yrs ago. I guess im used to it now and push through but sometimes it gets to me when its multiple locations.  Keep your chin up best you can.

Judging from your comments, you certainly don't sound laid back. Maybe that contributes to your OBs. Keeping your immune system in peak performance is also very important. So, for example, if you workout too vigorously and/or too often, that can actually run down your immune system. The amount of sleep you get also affects your immune system. How much quality sleep do you get; how many hours etc...

BTW, I don't have a chacha :)

Haha! I know, right?  I give myself cheat days for chocolate... which happens a lot of times and I definitely feel prodrome the next day.  The more chocolate I eat on the cheat day, the more intense the prodrome is.  Sometimes I just really get desperate and eat them. Don't even care about the h sensations.

 Maybe try and substitute your chocolate for something better quality because it could be that the quality of the chocolate contributes as well.  Go for something that has cacao in it.

      Really wasn't sure which topic to put this in! I'm guessing a lot of you will have seen the recent news that Mel B was rushed to hospital thinking she was blind from her eye herpes.  I know she's not as famous as she used to be, but I really don't understand why celebrities with a big presence aren't doing anything about this, such as fundraising for a cure or even just talking about it to raise awareness. Correct me if I'm wrong but I don't think she's ever spoken about it before!  She clearly suffers from some bad symptoms. Thinking that you've gone blind must have been one of the most terrifying experiences, and to me, after that ordeal I would try and do everything in my power to raise awareness and find a cure.  Maybe she just doesn't know about all the vaccination research that's currently happening, and how many of these places need the extra funding to keep going?  Not sure where I'm going with this 😂 But does anyone think it's worth getting in contact with her about raising some awareness?

      Hey @Alda whatever is going on for your arm you can rest assured it is not at all likely to be herpes. Could the blister type things be from the massage causing irritation, perhaps even contact dermatitis? If you aren't seeing improvement soon consider seeing the doctor but it doesn't strike me as anything of much concern.
    • Alda
      I need help; i went and got a massage and 2 days later my upper arm feels super sore and is red with 3 blister type things, each about a small pea size the place I got a massage at was  not very sanitary , it was hot in there and the masseuse was sweating I think (i do have the down south H but haven’t had a breakout in about a year and I still don’t.) my arm does not itch just super sore. I wonder what is on my arm. any ideas?

      It did! There are combinations you can take that will not give you this effect, I just didn't want to do medication anymore. What I am doing https://www.amazon.com/MakingCosmetics-BHT-4-4oz-125g/dp/B01DE780OS read Steve Fowkes free book BHT1/8 t in coconut liquid MCT chain oil. Extremely hard to dissolve. I leave it for a day, must read Steve Fowkes free book online, overdose gets people dizzy! More is not better! Oils will also not get Rancid if you put some in your cooking oils! whole food vitamin, glutamine 3x one gram, suggested by case9 love it DHEA,25mg, most people who breakout have low levels lugols iodine worked way to four drops. Fulvic acid minerals. Thyriod granular meds   When I used to have obs I used monolaurin and st.John s wort. I used diaper rash cream for obs I also still spray genitals with zinc sulfate mixed with water. I learned it kills any virus plus summer sweat won't smell at all!  There is one thing I will not be without and that's BHT and zinc sulfate
