Hey everyone ! I’ve been dealing with HSV-2 for over 5 yea

Hey everyone ! I’ve been dealing with HSV-2 for over 5 years now ! Although the partners I’ve had since then knows, I’ve never really talked and express how hard and what I go through mentally having this.. especially during a outbreak! I’m glad I can come to this group and express my self .. this is really new to me and is a big part of my personal healing! Dealing with HSV-2 is not easy at all .. and it does make you feel less than. But we have to get out of that mind set and still live our lives!

@LifeHurts2018 @WeArentPerfect:
as of now there is NO CURE for HSV. clinical trials and vaccines are fevorishly being pursued.

Alfredo Bowman—a/k/a “Dr. Sebi”—liked to tell stories. I have been unable to find any published evidence suggesting that he did extensive research or cured people who were seriously ill.

Just wanted to share a few thoughts that helps me with my HSV2. HSV in whatever combination is basically a painful, shareable acne. It is not HIV or cancer, just a skin condition with a very bad reputation that is usually, not always, but usually far worse than the reality. A skin condition does not define me, or change who I am. With basic precautions to safeguard others in place no one needs to know unless we are intimate enough to kiss or share cutlery for HSV1 or physically with HSV2. Yes an outbreak sucks, just like an acne outbreak, but a little different. With the right medication, proper rest, and a healthy aka low stress lifestyle life is almost the same. I can go hiking with friends, hang out and share a meal, go on road trips, hug and hold my loved ones etc. HSV can't take that away from me, or you. I hope that a cure is found soon, but until then my meds, with insurance, are a lot cheaper than acne meds. Good luck on your journey to healing, happiness, and peace.

@JayRob40 you’re absolutely right ! I do all the things I did before I found out I had and I handle it as needed.. but there is always a thought in my head but I definitely don’t let it define me at all ! But i do hope a cure is found !
