Paranoid about symptoms, IDK if it’s H or stress

Recommended Posts

My life has been pretty horrible emotionally since I got H. 

Stress can take a toll on the body, I know, but I’m worried what if some problems I have are because of H. Stress can be eliminated but the virus can’t... I cause myself further stress by worrying, though... 

For instance, my nails have gotten weak. No matter my vitamin intake or my diet, they still break all the time. I used to grow them out and they looked like fake nails, now they can’t even stay intact unless I have many hard layers of protective nail polish on and I keep them short  

Also, I have always been sensitive to sugar, it made me unfocused and “hyperactive”, but it’s gotten even worse. If I drink one single cup of fresh fruit juice (with NO added sugar!) I get dizzy... 

Will this damn virus consume me? Or should I just get herbal supplements to battle stress, and try to calm the hell down?

First thing first the virus only targets the area it’s  been spread to. So if you have genital herpes it’ll only target that area.

Second you are allowing this stupid virus to consume you and take over your life! Stop! The stress is the only thing causing your nails to become weaker! 

The sugar thing might be serious and you need to go to a doctor very soon to talk to them about that. Your body isn’t accpeting the sugar for some reason and that’s a problem! 

You are so strong because you have survived through this virus! The worst thing you can do is let it take over your life! It’s  not worth it! Please give yourself the benefit of the doubt you’ve survived you’re a warrior! You’re beautiful and you got this! Don’t let it beat you! 

How long have you had had it and what type do you have?
