Dealing With A Herpes Diagnoses - I go between all of these phases regularly
It has been 5 years since my diagnosis and just when I think I have reached the acceptance phase, I feel the symptoms of an outbreak.
Devastation and heart break come almost instantly and I feel like I revert back to anger, bargaining, sadness and depression.
I felt very hopeful when I learned about Dynamiclear, I felt at that time that I could finally get control over this virus that for so long has controlled me.
I used my first application this past weekend and the pain from blistering and the product actually 'working' has been so painful that it has brought me back to tears once again.
I spoke to customer support and they assured me that this reaction was normal for a first time application and to just ride out the storm.
I feel hopeful once again that the next outbreak will be a little less painful and so on each time less and less. I feel like I am doing all of the right things, watching my diet, exercising, balancing my lysine levels and eliminating certain foods from my diet that are known triggers for the virus.
But when I feel another outbreak coming on, I just feel so defeated. I feel sometimes as though I just won't ever be able to plan too far ahead because an outbreak may turn my life upside down once again.
I feel as though I get up, I feel so positive and free...and then fall flat on my face. Any words of wisdom other than to just keep getting back up??
