I just was diagnosed with genital herpes. I am taking acyclovir 3 times a day and I just got lidocaine to put on to numb. It helps a little I will admit but it is still so painful. I am on ibuprofen a few times a day. I've taken baths for relief and to pee and it helps but honestly nothing completely relieves the pain.
This is literally the worst and I want to die. I don't want to be dramatic but I was already depressed and this just brought down my world. I will try to push through because I need to strengthen my immune system. I know, I've done so much research it hurts.
THE WORST PART pls help.
I haven't been eating or drinking for a week, since the sores started, because of fear to go to the bathroom. It is excruciating to pee and there's no words for the pooping. I am so frickin thirsty and hungry but there is something in me that will not let myself eat.
I have eaten small amounts of food and drink water to take my pills. What do I do? I am currently holding in a poop right now. I don't know what to do, I know it's bad for me but it's like the pain is so horrible I can't do it, and I don't want to. I wish these sores would drain and heal so I could live my life.
Some one please give me some advice on how to cope. Some happy stories that happened to you after herpes. I just turned 20. I still wanna have sex and mess around and I feel like having to tell every person I have herpes will ruin that.
