Herpes loves stress

Recommended Posts

I'm finding out. In the next few weeks I'm having a breast biopsy, a custody hearing, and my fiance is losing his job at the college he

teaches at because it's been bought out. I havent been sick or missed a dose of valtrex but today I got that familiar papercut pain where I always do. And sure enough, theres an angry red painful blister. Oh yeah, the lawnmower caught on fire and my printer scanner died too. It's super challenging to destress during times like these but obviously I need to.

It's true. If I don't get enough sleep or go out denying several nights in a row, or get emotional over something, outbreak are more likely to happen even with suppressive therapy. I just double up my dosage and try to rest.


Herpes is an extension of your psyche now. It reacts to tough times and you can use it as a litmus test to organize your life to be less stressful.
