I knew it was coming. I just knew it. The doctor said I have herpes. The disease I've been so afraid of for years and years I've contracted. I want to die now honestly. Everything in my life was so perfect...now this. Sweet Jesus I need someone. I can't run to my friends. I'm afraid to run to my bf. I've already told him and I'm afraid he won't stay much longer.....

Hey hey you have done the right thing in coming here. I think we can find more light than heat here for you.

So important to start at the very beginning as Sister Maria says in The Sound of Music. 

How have you been diagnosed with herpes?

Yeast, staph, molluscum, shingles...

If this is herpes and a primary infection then your bf is probably the source.

If your life was perfect lucky you.  Your life can still be great with hsv.  It is the same as having cold sores.  You only fear it because of the stigma right?  You will be ok.  Many people come onto support sites feeling their life is over. Most go after a few weeks.  Some come back after a year and say how good their life is.

I'm gonna try to keep an open mind. I know it's so prevalent. I thought I was being careful. I'm sad and depressed. Then I thought, ....there are people dying at this moment but I'm wanting to die because of a skin disease.......how selfish of me. This isn't a death sentence. A nuisance, but not a death sentence. Hopefully this is the only outbreak I have (or if the doc calls and says this isn't herpes that would be even better).any tips on keeping this at bay if it is herpes?

That is really mature, something to be really proud of in this mindset.

Maybe take hot baths with salts and blow dry the area when you get out. Get a heap of rest and drink stacks of water. There is very much an element of riding this out, time is a best friend.

If your life 'was' perfect, then it still is. You have gotten many viruses in your life and survived them without much of a second thought (I imagine). What helped me when I was first diagnosed was realizing that life was still okay and normal. Distractions were nice at first. I also enjoyed coming into the chatroom here and being able to talk about herpes as well as other everyday jokes and happenings. You'll be able to see that plenty of people have herpes and are okay, and you will be too. <3

I think a laughter through tears would be a good thread.  When you can't change a situation sometimes you have to lighten your mood and get a chuckle.  For  instance I literally had a flavor ice icepop rigged up in my underpants.  Can you imagine anything that would be more embarrassing other than it falling out while in line at Walgreens?  It didn't but I did get a good laugh at the whole thing once I made it safely back to my car!  I've decided I am the same person I always was and will not feel bad about myself. Instead of crying about it at that moment when I thought "thank God for small favors.  The icepop stayed in my pants!"  Things can always be worse.  It's an inconvenience not a death sentence.  I will not let this get the best of me and I laughed at the absurdity of an icepop in my pants.

      @DJwah curious about your results. anything you can share?
    • HerpesOrNot
      Thanks. Did you experience general discomfort when urinating for quite a while after the excruciating part was done, or was it instantly over after the week with antivirals? 
    • HerpesOrNot
      Thanks for the response.  I have been tested for HSV over and over for 5 months (IgM 1 time and IgG over 5 times) and been negative on everything, including a swab of a red rash and of an irritated urethral opening.  My very first symptom of anything was VERY painful urination that lasted about a day or two if I recall, followed a week or so later by a sore throat, chills, night sweats, and fatigue.  Things settled for maybe a few days, then came an extremely itchy anus/rectum with redness for weeks, itchy groin with no redness at all, then eventual red, itchy rash in groin and increase in redness on penile skin with mild itching. Never had a lesion or blister anywhere from what I've seen. Nothing seems to coincide with typical herpes, but herpes isn't always typical from what I've learned. Creams of all kinds from doctors are not helping at all.  I seem to have a new bug no one has ever come across (doubtful), or an atypical case of herpes or something similar.

      No, Sebi was a fraud. This article is an interesting summary. https://www.thebody.com/article/dr-sebi-did-not-cure-hiv-nipsey-hussle-documentary If you’re basing the possibility of ‘cures’ on Sebi, I’ve got a car for sale that’s had one careful lady driver! Its simply fact that of the 40 billion people who have ever had HSV 1/2, not one eradicated it from their body.

      I'm amazed people do not think outside the box and to go to great efforts to reply to me saying "it's not curable" I simply cannot understand. If you truly believe Western Medicine and they say it's not curable then whatever they claim in the future you will live your life with their scientific proof. I simply have posted here to hear from like minded people who are juicing and doing colonics to see what their results are. People who have had cancer have cured it with a alternative lifestyle becoming vegan etc so if cancer is cureable who can't you open your mind and just think could hsv be curable? did you know Dr Sebi was taken to court because he claimed he cured someone with Aids? He turned up with 25 people who he cured of all illnesses and was let off. So please spare me your thought's of "It's not curable" as I will never belive that. Unless you have some experiences with juicing and colonics you wish to share then do not comment on this thread. Will no longer reply to closed minded sad people like yourselves.
