Not really pissed

Recommended Posts

I went to the hospital 4 times this week with a sever sore throat, fever, could barely swallow. After the 4th time there they diagnosed me with hsv2.  I have been on on antivirals now for two days and I seem to be getting a little better.  Now I just feel crushed, emotionally drained, with a lot of questions.

It maybe sounds like you've been newly infected with HSV but remember its not the end of the world, even though it may feel like that..I've had HSV-2 for 6+years now and I know, its hard in the beginning, you just want to roll up in a ball and hide..well don't!! Don't let herpes control you, you control it!! Don't let that little shitty virus run your life!! One of the best things you can do is get on the internet and start reading everything you can about herpes, pick the veterans brains here, ask all the questions you can, the more you learn, the more it will help you!! Thats what I did and it helped me and I decided that I was gonna battle this virus with everything I have inside of me instead of hiding from it!!! Now I am in a better state of mind!!! If you ever need anything or have any questions you wanna ask me please feel free to ask me :)

sorry you acquired the virus, as @Cat_Glam18 indicated, it gets easier, and a large number of us have had it for a while and its really no big deal as time goes on. not to say its a walk in the park, but outside of days you have outbreaks, life is for the most part..... normal. feel free to ask anything, virus related or whatever you like.

I really appreciate your comments, I was feeling pretty alone there.  Now that I am feeling better physically I can process this emotionally, and knowing that this is a great place to find answers and some encouragement I am determined not to let this set me back.
