I’ve only been diagnosed since last july, but i’ve had outbreaks for almost 1 year, HSV2. when i was finally diagnosed i was put on valcyclovir, 500mg during outbreaks, but i had so many.., like every 3 or 4 weeks, that i went on daily valcyclovir. I still continued to have out breaks. Now i take 1000mg daily. Still having outbreaks. i am taking vitamin b, c, d3, plus lysine, zinc, and magnisium. it’s just crazy. i feel you. it is very depressing. i wish i had some words, tricks, or ideas to help you… i’m sorry. i’m in the same boat.
Thank you for your response. It feels like i cannot go more than 3 or 4 weeks without an outbreak. i work 2 jobs and go to school, plus have aging parents. my boyfriend has stuck with me so on the upside… I’m not homeless. (that was supposed to be funny).
I’m sad about this disease and have only told one friend and my sister, well and my boyfriend. I do the washing my hands thing, and am not even sure how to like… wash in the shower.. (sorry…tmi). i feel like no matter what i do i am going to spread this to other parts of my body.
I have just started a regime of vitamin B, lysine, zinc, magnesium vitamin c, vitamin d3, fish oil, i think that’s it.
I use witch hazel when i am having an outbreak, which doesn’t feel great but atleast seems like i am doing SOMETHING topically. also i use coconut oil and tea tree oil topically when i am having an outbreak.
this whole thing just sucks. I feel like i will never have a “normal” sex life… whatever that is.
sigh… i hate this.
thank you for the support.
i am sorry your mom yelled at you.
I wish i had some positive uplifting story to tell you guys, but i am in the same boat of being newly diagnosed and feeling not able to tell anyone. my boyfriend and one of my best friends knows. that’s it. I haven’t told my kids (they are grown) or my parents (they are elderly).
just wanted you both to know there are others in the same sad boat.
