I got it about a year ago exactly. First outbreak was most of my lips and inside my mouth took it about a month for it all to "heal". didn't know at first what it was. When I got the results back I hated myself.. still do. Still hate the pos that have it to me. Yet still every period every stressful day I get another "outbreak" Does it ever get better? How long before it can be maybe 4 times a year vs 2-3 times a month? It's ruining my life.
