Hi there ... from NC!

I've diagnosed myself with herpes.  I started experiencing symptoms on December 26th and went to my OBGyn. 

I was tested for all STDs including HIV, Hepatitis B and Syphillis. Everything came back negative. Still, the burning, back pain and groin pain persisted. 

At first I didn't see any lesions then I grabbed my camera to look down there and finally spotted them (the lesions). I was devastated but honestly? 

I'm more interested in taking care of myself than feeling sorry for myself. I just want to be able to manage the symptoms and get on with my life. 

I'm 29. I've decided not to date for a good while and just take care of myself and focus on growing my business. The LAST thing on my mind is sex. 

My symptoms started on the 26th. And I'm still having symptoms. Although, it's gotten A LOT better. Yesterday I had chocolate and a sub sandwich and started getting sick again. I guess this is the universe's way of getting me to finally lose weight once and for all. 

While this has done a number on me mentally, i'm just glad it's manageable. 

Anyways, I'm glad to have a place to share this stuff. I've decided not to tell people in my personal life.

      literally cold sores just make my whole mouth area numb and in pain, especially when i eat food or take a shower. it's super hard too when you are trying not to break open the scab but daily activities tend to make it worse. luckily, i don't get headaches or anything so bless your souls, just a lil runny nose and lots of pain.   i have found some natural remedies/OTCs ease the pain. ice for example always makes it feel more numb, but i have to wait until the scab isn't super delicate.   i made a parody to 7rings by ariana grande destigmatizing cold sores-- give it a chance:) and if you like it, repost with the hashtag #realslimsorechallenge with your own tips to shorten coldsores everywhere! they friggin suck!!!!! we gotta be here for eachother:)
