Kicking myself


Recommended Posts

Here's a link to the herpes cure video so others know what you're referring to. And based on my experience with so many other people with herpes, yes, you are being too hard on yourself.   Be your own supportive friend during this time. You deserve it.

[Here is part of the post "How can you get herpes?" on the herpeslife blog.]
Based on my experience and everything I've heard from the medical community and people in the support group, it's difficult to spread herpes manually from one part of the body to another. It is possible, but it's hard to do. Keep in mind that for some people, the virus shows up in the exact same spot for every herpes outbreak, while for other people, their outbreaks move around a bit (the virus might use a different nerve system/"herpes highway" to get to the surface of the skin). For those where it moves around a bit, this is most likely not because of anything you've done. In order for you to manually move the virus to other parts of your body, you'll have to transfer the fluid from within a herpes sore to another part of your body that has an opening (a cut, a mucous membrane). And because of the rapid breakdown of the herpes virus in open air, this would have to be done with ninja-like swiftness. But if you have any sort of paranoia, simply wash your hands after touching any herpes sore and you're definitely home-free.

Notes:

  • My mother is now in hospice with end-stage cancer, so I am at her house a lot these days helping where I can until she passes. Thank you in advance for understanding if I am not as quick to respond as I normally would be. This is a precious and bittersweet time …
