I was officially diagnosed with hsv 1 and 2 in 2013 but I'm pretty sure I contracted the disease in 2012. When I first found out, I was hurt and scared ONLY because it was foreign to me but once i educated myself as much as possible...i felt better. I prayed and moved on. To be honest, sometimes I forget I even have it bc it doesn't happen frequently. And when it does occur, I don't get sad or mad.. i just take care of it. I had an OB in jan on this yr...i haven't had another until now and that's bc I have been stressing a lot. I take lysine and zinc. I NEVER taken Valtrex or any other med related to it bc i rather allow my immune system to do exactly what it's designed to do...and to help it... i take lysine and zinc. I also use tee tree oil ...i also crush zine and lysine pills and make a paste then apply...by the next day total improvement. By the 3rd day everything is almost normal. I only had problems urinating once and that's bc an OB occurred in a different spot on my vag and it was hard to pass urine...other than that...the location of my usual OB is at the bottom of vag kinda at beginning of butt. ..and when it comes it's only a little scratch or bump...nev r a cluster of blisters...i do get the headaches and that for me is the most annoying thing...more annoying to me than the OB...of course the itching is present but I just apply the oil and paste and it goes away. I do date I do live my life bc life goes on. I've never infected anyone ..since I was diagnosed. ...i just make sure to not have any sexual contact during that time. It's the stigma that makes this disease bad. Dont feed into it. Your life can be just as normal. Dont get upset Wth yourself. ..it'll be ok!
