The first post is always the most daunting. I've rewritten this line I don't know how many times. Anyways, this blog is about the endless battles I've had with cold sores. Speaking of which I have one developing in the right corner of my mouth, they usually tend to be the most painful for me. Oh happy days! I want to share with you what I've tried, what has worked and what has been a complete waste of time and money. I have tried almost everything, some of which are down right ridiculous. All of which I will get to in good time.
To most people not suffering (symptomatically) from cold sores the virus may seem just like a superficial disease. Which is partially correct, you can't actually get closer to the meaning as they appear on the surface of the skin. However, to anyone that has experienced them, they are so much more than that! They are extremely painful and sadly the emotional pain associated with them can be even greater, and not just for preteens and adolescents. Brings back fond memories of Biology class during an outbreak whilst the lesson being... you guessed it! The emotional scars can linger long after the physical ones have disappeared.
I'm very passionate about bringing more awareness to this virus. Yes, I know there a far greater diseases. But everyone of them needs a voice.
I'm very passionate about bringing more awareness to this virus. Yes, I know there a far greater diseases. But everyone of them needs a voice. If no one speaks, no one is heard. The fact that HSV has been linked to Alzheimer's stresses the importance of this. So this blog is my voice, my story and I hope you will join me along the way.
