The fact that the majority of adults carry the HSV1 virus may help your stress level considerably.

Read the Herpes Handbook etc as per my signature line.

HSV 1 is no big deal and the sooner you stop stressing over this the better you will be as stress can bring on ob's.

Life will go on and to put this in perspective by age 70 approx 70% or more of people will have HSV 1. So it is very common.
Read more in the Herpes Handbook. Watch the Herpes Video and Terri Warren's book The Good News about the Bad News. All located under the heading Herpes at http://www.westoverheights.com/
