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.

      More confusion! So the results have come back for both of the partners that I've been with over the last 3-4 years and they are both negative for type 1 and type 2. Where do I go next? Any advice?

      please look through the forum in exact and careful detail and inform yourself of less than usual circumstances to cover yourself.

      auto inoculation is rare and it can happen. off objects is debated but some people claim it happens. some people have experienced it happens easily.

      so you know practice good hygiene. i personal think use a heated towel rail and make sure your towels are fully hot and dry. there were studies in the 80's showing it can live on towels for 75 hours. The herpes association say most experts agree it cannot be caught off a towel. That is most experts not all. Some people end up with it on their body and one has to wonder how? Towels I would guess.

      Things that tend to stay kinda wet or so on. cups are another one that fit that i think.

      I remember being at university once and being in the bathroom while a girl was on the phone to her friend.She thought she had a bite on her face but clear to me someone with herpes had kissed her on the cheek recently, it didnt look typical just her skin peeling. 

      I am not an expert though or a doctor so do your own research.

      Update: The creme that contains the tetrapodal zinc oxide still isn't available at Gorch Fock Apotheke Kiel. I called them today: same status as last year and they have no further information on when and if it will be available again.

      Lilian, the zinc acetate we are talking about here is different from the tetrapodal zinc oxide that you are mentioning. But thanks for the reminder. The ointment that contains the tetrapodal zinc oxide still isn't available at Gorch Fock Apotheke Kiel. I called them today: same status as last year and they have no further information on when and if it will be available again.

      I've had neg swabs but I am sure you'll get it. Follow the process. I haven't read the thread in exact detail, but if you have documentation of doctors mishandling your case when you get/ if you get a poss inform them in writing as well as the medical board I think.  Under diagnosis is as problematic as false pos and reducing transmission is good.
