walking the thin line

Newly diagnosed and looking for someone nearby. No need to xchange personal info, I just need to know I'm not alone.

Sorry to hear. It can mess with your psyche truly. If you want to talk just let me know, been diagnosed for a while and it is still a difficult topic.

hi

I was just diagnosed on Friday and I am in Chicago as well. I am very upset about this. Everyone tells me it's not a huge deal but it sure feels like it to me.

Chi town here. Had to find a forum. Feeling alone and out of my mind. So many thoughts tracing as well as the pains in my body. No sores, flu like symptoms, body aches, sharp stomach pains.. the lies about how I'm feeling. Symptoms also simular to pms with a kick. Four years with the same guy and he decides to bring me, his faithful ass woman who accepted him for who he is. Herpes for life. Thank God its not fatal and if it is please don't tell me. Ok I vented.

((HUGS)) to everyone who responded.

It's about my 1yr anniversary having this. I truly felt alone for the longest time. If anyone notices, I posted this thread last year '07 and no one responded :( Until recently :))

It's very comforting to know that there are others nearby. It's been a year and I have to admit that it's not the end all of things as I initially thought. I have become more aware of surroundings and things. I take my Lysine and try avoiding unnecessary stress.

yeah they all say it is not a big deal until it comes to being involved in a relationship. I think it can really ruin intimacy and there is such a stigma associated with it. I am trying to figure out a way that I can assist in research to find a cure because I believe there has to be. Anyone have any connections into a health organization like World Health or CDC...just curious...if you ever want to talk about it pls let me know I would love to be able to have someone to really be honest with. right now I have no one

      In my case, the symptoms of keratitis appeared suddenly, while I was waiting for the bus on a bus stop. I had a feeling like something burst in my left eye. The eye immediately became red, very watery, painful and I couldn't look at the light. There was a hospital nearby, so in half an hour I had an appointment with an ophthalmologist who diagnosed keratitis and gave me a prescription for some eye drops. The instruction for the eye drops mentioned that this medicine was used against keratitis caused  the herpes virus. That's how I found out that my keratitis was a viral one. For the next 15 years I had relapses of the keratitis. I was lucky that the corneal clouding was far enough away from the pupils and didn't affect my vision. Since I started using the garlic solution 18 years ago, I've successfully been preventing any keratitis relapses which sometimes try to come back. In case of viral keratitis there's no discharge from the eyes. If you have some discharge, it may possibly mean that you have a bacterial infection which should be treated with antibiotics. The problem is in finding the right drug for your particular case, the particular antibiotics that can kill the infection in your eyes. Garlic has both anti-viral and antibacterial properties, so you can try this method, it won't do you any harm anyway. Make the garlic solution with water as described in my post above. Apply it to the closed eyelids every hour during the day and every 2 hours during the night. Two days will be enough to see if garlic has any affect in your case, whether it makes their condition any better. Try this and let me know how it goes, write to me at  vasilenko.igor@inbox.ru Kind regards, Igor Vasilenko

      Man, I think you need to meet people before you disclose to them. Having said that, I've disclosed via text and that worked for me with my ex girlfriend. We were together almost two years. Gotta get out there and take a few hits, to iron out your approach.

      Shit now I'm worried.   My partner had no symptoms, and never has and does not know status.   Has gone to be tested too.  Recently cleared of other std's but honestly we never discussed HSV.
