    I am not on medication for herpes because I've never had an outbreak thankfully, but I completely understand the anxiety part. I am so anxious about it all the time but if you ever need someone to talk to about it who understands you're welcome to dm me I'm happy to listen.

    My first herpes outbreak was one of the worst the doctors had ever seen. I was actually close to dying and was hospitalized for nine days with constant IVs and medication. The experience was so bad that I actually have PTSD from it. If I forget to take my meds or feel like an outbreak is coming on even if there isn’t I will have extreme anxiety and paranoia. Sometimes I lay awake all night worrying that another outbreak will come on in that will that I will end up back in the hospital. I am actually scarred from the experience.

    Try not to stress cause that can also start the outbreaks. I noticed when I start getting anxiety or stressing I feel the tingling sensation like if an outbreak is going to happen. I usually get outbreaks only when I shave pubic hair and it sucks.

    Oh I see so you’ve had it for a minute. I just found out last year after having my second child it was two months after when I got the outbreak :/ it definitely messes with your mind state .. I just started on seamoss I heard detoxes can really help a lot but it’s hard when you gotta cut down on the food lol now that time has pass you don’t get them as much as you did before then ?
