WAY TO GO!!! I'm proud of you!!! I'm glad you were able to take this whole experience and turn it into something positive
Have you thought about being a herpes HELP group so you can benefit from all the things ASHA has to offer? Also if you haven't already - find out who your local representative is for valtrex at GSK and contact them ( ask the pharmacy at the clinic/hospital you are having your meetings at ) and they can also give you a lot of useful info for yourself, the medical personel you are dealing with and also for the people with herpes who you are helping. They have dvd's of Terri Warren's patient counseling video which if you've never watched it you can see it for free on her website.
Keep it up
