I dont have a remedy. I was actually looking for something to help with the knots that I usually get with an OB in my groin area. After reading over some of the responses about people who have just in diagnosed, let me tell you.. I thought at 19 it was the end of the world as well. I thought I couldn't have children, no one would want me, i was marked for life. I am now almost 28 years old.. a mother to a beautiful child who is free of this disease. I am not in a relationship, but my disease does not keep me from having a significant other. I understand there are some people on here who feel no one will want them. Let me tell you this, that is not the case. This virus is so common amongst people it is sad. Just look at the pages upon pages of people confessing that they have it. I have told my partners that I have it along the years, giving them the choice on what they want to do.. I have ran into a couple of people who already had it or had a partner that had it. Others just dont care because they care about you. Some times my outbreaks bother me... sometimes they dont. They are usually predictable. Sometimes I have to go without the medicines sometimes I have it. Over the years I learned to accept the fact that I was given this without a choice. Although I dont like having it I do not allow it to completely shut me down and make me not want to gt out there and either educate or continue to find love for myself. I can honestly say that the virus has never broken me up with a boyfriend. I forget I have it until it pops up... but I deal with it and keep moving.. For those of you who have just gotten this virus, trust me.. everything will be alright. You will make it through.. you are not tarnished.. you are still who you are.. a beautiful person.
