  1. This one is for the ladies. To make a long story short: after a horrible year of outbreaks (had genital hsv for about 10yes and was on acyclovir with NO outbreaks for 8 years then all of a sudden BAM, horrible monthly internal outbreaks) I switched my meds to 1g of valacyclovir. While it did seem to help I’ve felt that the prodrome symptoms are almost constant. A few months ago I started taking Culturelle Women’s Healthy Balance Probiotics which also promotes vaginal health. I swear the months where I religiously take these I feel so much better down below. Idk if it’s all in my head or not but I would suggest any women with genital hsv to add these to your regimen and see if it helps. Anyone have insight on this?

  2. I am terrified of being judge. I am tired of attractive men approaching me and feeling like they don't deserve it. Like I'm carrying a lethal weapon. So today I told a guy im dating. I haven't known him for long so I told myself if he leaves it won't hurt as bad. So far he has asked a few questions but said he still wanted to talk to me. He was shocked I have it but I explained everything and he told me he knew someone with it. I don't have any high hopes but I'm just happy to rip this bandage off!!! It wasn't for him it was for me . It wasn't bad as I thought. I did it because you guys gave me the confidence to stop bring do damn scared all the time. Thank you guys!!! Virtual Big Hug!!

  3. Hi. I feel kinda under qualified to offer any sound advice. I was diagnosed in February. I literally cried for weeks and had very dark thoughts. I can now say that I have more good days then bad. For example, this weekend was rough but I’m doing better now. I just continued to take my meds and my symptoms were gone literally the next day or so. Whenever I get too down, I just say to myself “yes I’m scared, but I still want to live. “. Sorry for any typos. I’m sending this from my phone.

  4. It’s tough coming to grips with this. But let these thoughts be fleeting. In time it will become just another nuisance. There is still beauty and love in life even though it’s dark right now. I have always been passionate about taking care of my own mental health, but when I got this diagnosis I had a thought that death would be better than to live with this. All in all it’s a just a skin condition. Reach out if you need!

  5. https://www.amazon.com/Making-Peace-Herpes-Overcoming-Outbreaks/dp/0978078012 I just finished reading this book on my kindle and found some very useful information in regards to controlling outbreaks. Garlic and zinc supplements and a supplement called “brewers yeast.” There’s a chapter in regards to diet on what you should eat and shouldn’t eat as well. Good read nonetheless.
