Worst Ever!!


Recommended Posts

I don't want to write a "sad" story... but to make it short....

Herpes (coldsores) are the worst.....

It cuts into you life, confidence , your attitude towards life, or atleast thats how i feel.

I have missed school b/c of it, and I guess, its b/c of me, self confidence but its true.... how can anyone go to school knowing, that you will be starred at. Then imagine everyone knowing you have it.... I don't care what they say..even if it heals and they see you later on... that will be one of the things that they always think about... thats human nature. and you can't deny that.

I could go on and tell you that I wasted another school year, probably won't graduate till I go to school for 6 years (even though I am not studying as a doctor)

but what can you do.

It is sad, that we have this.... I've heard people say that they are better and know themselves better b/c of it.... but i am sure if they DIDN'T have it..... they would be HAPPIER... not "knowing" themselves or the whole "Situation". ignorance is bliss.

The only thing I have found out is that I am not alone... and although this is probably one of my lowest times recently.... I guess there must be others who have worse. concerning the virus... and even worldly issues

I have used this site for a few days now... and I have noticed a few very nice people....... friendly, caring, a good friend...0 I can tell.

so thanks to all... faith... this site... anyone else who takes this situation seriously and is trying to help US. thanks for the advices.. keep them coming.

ps. I guess... what doesn't kill us only makes us stronger.

I guess... having this virus... makes us a little bit more humble, makes us more caring for those less fortuneate.

But I hate it for what its worth... I have lost a lot of time b/c of this Sh!t

You have to win the battle with yourself.

A coldsore doesn't keep you down... you keep you down...

You sound like a successful guy... Don't let a coldsore beat you up...

YOU run the show... YOU are the man...

but i am sure if they DIDN'T have it..... they would be HAPPIER...

If not for what I've learned from having HSV... And how much stronger of a person I've become... I'd be NOWHERE NEAR as happy as I am now...

Now if they came up with a cure tomorrow.. hell yeah, I'd be happier... Because I learned what I learned about myself, and about life, and love... AND then I was able to get rid of the hurdle (hsv) that made me learn those things...

But there is no doubt in my mind that without hsv I'd be half the guy I am today and there is NO way I'd be as happy as I am...

You might have a hard time believing that.. You might be reading this saying "shhhhya... RIIIIIGHT"

But why would I lie?

Cold Sores No More

Ever since I apply Carmex to my lips daily, I have not had a cold sore since. I f you haven't tried it, you should. Maybe it will work for you.

Hi Aloemen,

Herpes cannot interfere with your life or confidence.<smile>

I think....... true confidence doesn't compete with others. True confidence doesn't care what people think about you. True confidence is quiet. True confidence comes from something big inside of you which is always helping you to see things in perspective. True confidence lets you live your life no matter what.

Having faith in life, doesn't mean that you expect something good will happen to you. Having faith in life is -knowing- that no matter what happens you'll be there living your life strongly.

That's what I found out through dealing with this herpes issue.

And I'm so glad I found out those things, cuz since then things which used to bother me sooo much don't bother me at all. Now I'm enjoying my life more than ever.

Herpes will let you grow as a person in a great way. You'll start finding things which are "real", wayyy before your friends start realizing them. And as a result, life becomes much easier for you to live, and you can enjoy life 100 %..... and that wouldn't happen without having things like herpes.

I guess... having this virus... makes us a little bit more humble' date=' makes us more caring for those less fortuneate.[/quote']

In other words, having herpes makes your ego shut up :D, and makes you realize that you have something which is bigger than your ego, and the something IS who you really are..... It knows what you want, what you need, and how to love and care for others and yourself.

Believe me. With herpes, you can/will be HAPPIER....!!

Best wishes..

Ha a genital herpes commercial just started on TV. I've seen 10 times more of these commercials since I found out. Valtrex.


you had said that you wasted a lot of time with this sh**.

I'm not sure if it's the same for you or not but I'll tell you how I felt.

After I found out that I had this I was at the lowest point of my entire life. I can honestly say that I never felt worse. I didn't want to kill myself or anything, I just didn't care to be alive. I didn't get joy out of anything, going out with friends, going to work, etc. I wasn't myself at all and my friends knew something was wrong.

But I can honestly also say that I am glad that I went through that. I'm glad that it happened to me and not someone close to me. I wouldn't wish this on anyone, well not anyone that I love and care about.

The time that I lost- oh about three months (when I was at my low point) was the best thing that could of probably ever happen to me. I learned about life and what's important. Laughing- gosh that is so important to me. I didn't do it for three months and the first time I did it after finding out I had this was probably the best laugh I had ever had. Herpes is not the most important thing in your life, it makes you realize what is. "the lost time" that I had was actually a gaining of years on my soul. I learned that my family and friends are the best people on this planet. I couldn't of asked to be placed in a better family and to have picked greater friends.

I don't view it as lost time... I don't think I can because I've gained so much from this. I've gained way more than I lost.

      Yes, but every married person who I found out about that has this waited 6-8 months into the relationship to disclose it. But maybe you're right. If I had told her 6-7 months in, she'd still have Googled it and flipped out, and maybe it would have been harder then. I don't know. I don't see myself going through this level of pain and rejection so easily next time. I really don't. I'm taking the meds. I use protection. It's been almost a decade since I've had it so I'm not worried about shedding or passing it on so easily. British studies confirm that the first 2 years are the most contagious and we're passed that. I'm just over this. I've never been in so much emotional pain in my life.

      @WilsoInAus would really appreciate your input please. Kinda freaking out lol.

      Is this herpes? I can’t find any pics that match this exactly and my symptoms don’t really match. I don’t have really any of the typical herpes symptoms other than pictured, so I figured it could be friction as I have recently been having a lot of sex with a new partner. Way more than normal. Started having unprotected sex about 3 - 4 weeks ago. These symptoms only started about 3-4 days ago. Felt burning in some areas and only some very few tiny red areas/spots appeared. Almost shiny in appearance. Seems to settle very quickly. They were only present for a day or so. Also had some very mild irritation after I pee but not during. This spot has 2 small red lumps that are now dry around the outside. It’s like it’s been rubbed off and the skin is dry and shiny underneath. It doesn’t seem to be lesion. There was no puss or any leakage, nor was the skin ever red under them. They also got better within a day or so. I still have red spots around but they are very small and not bunched together and some general discomfort but I feel it’s because I’ve touched it so much! Stressing a bit!  my research tells me friction burn/blister , Fungal ,herpes a bit of it all! I have no idea! Please help! Thanks in advance.

      I’m going to force him to get tested ! Thanks for your help !

      @EssenceL25 there really isn't a question mark around the source, it's your latest partner. The median time from infection to an outbreak of lesions upon initial infection is 4 days.  The only thing that isn't certain is the type I suggest.
