Despair

Guineapiglover

I am pretty sure I am experiencing my first outbreak. Even my doctor had one look and said “looks like herpes” then gave me herpes medications even though I get tested tomorrow . I feel so lost, used, upset and angry. I’m in so much pain as I have really bad sores and going to the bathroom brings tears to my eyes becuase of the pain. I have always considered myself attractive and a good person and now I feel completely worthless and like the decency I’ve had through life and respecting others was for nothing because I get hurt time and time again and this time it’s gone too far. I’m feel like no one will really ever want me now and love is all I have ever desired. I can’t talk about this to my family because it would break their hearts. I don’t know where to go from here

I'm feeling the same.   Get my blood results in 3 hours and my swab results sometime next week probably.   I'm thinking this is the lowest I've ever or could ever feel. I'm so sorry you are going through this too.  Wish this virus never existed.   And I'd been smarter.

I won’t get my results for over a week. I think he’s right and acceptance is the best route for us , there are people living with way worse things OR disabilities Wich affect their lives . So it could be worse

I agree. But I just feel like a completely different person.  I know it could be worse I guess.  But this sure is one thing I never expected or wanted to experience.  I don't know how I can go back to work next week if I'm still feeling like this physically and mentally.  I'm on spring break at the moment.

Allow yourself time to grieve - for as long as is necessary. Turn the experience into leverage into new choices and direction in life. I believe something in the form of better suppression or a cure will come in our lifetimes.

      Your symptoms and photos match exactly what I've been dealing with on and off since October 2018 after I had a a really bad flu that brought about tingling on my lips. It felt like a cold sore was going to develop, but a bunch of tiny white bumps showed up that doctors have yet to fully explain what it is. I also have a constant feeling of a dry, chapped upper lip. A few weeks later the white tongue showed up. I'm also currently dealing with a change in taste in my mouth. I eventually tested positive fro HSV1 months later, but I don't know where on my body it is. I also have discoloration on my the tip of my penis. One dentist told me I had bacteria covering my tongue, and another dentist said nothing looked suspicious. I also get the cut on my tongue.  Prepare yourself for a journey of doctors telling you that you look normal when, in fact, you do not.

      @CheekyMunkey there is absolutely no way you, me or anyone has any chance of diagnosing what issues inside the mouth might be. There are simply too many issues that create similar looking outcomes. All I can say is that issues inside the mouth are way, way less likely to be related to herpes compared to if you were having issues on the lips.

      Hi mate.  Thank you for responding. I do feel better but I think the oral might be the issue. I was looking at my tongue and it looks white. Well whiter than normal. Also about 3 days ago I had a really sharp pain in my tongue which lasted like seconds. Later in the day when I saw it it had like a line cut into it. Is it a lesion? I have no pain in my tongue at all, no fluid filled sores but I noticed that Its shape isn't right. Like a bits missing on the tip of the right hand side. I've added two pics. It looks whiter in the pics then it actually is but I noticed red dots all down near the tip. Could that be something? Herpes? Also, where the tongue goes out of shape there is nothing on that side. I did burn my mouth on some pizza on the day I felt that sharp pain so not sure if that's got something to do with it.  https://ibb.co/zhphnMD https://ibb.co/G0pPRLh Thanks in advance.

      Personally, I'm still wondering how likely is it China will cure HSV before the States does ?...
