hey all just wanted to let you know that i’m pretty seriously ill. i have been since friday last week but it really escalated on sunday. i’ve had soaring fevers and haven’t eaten for five days now but supposedly what i have should start clearing up soon. i had a scare there where i was worried i was going to be hospitalized but i think i’m fine! i have a lot of make-up work to do at school though as i missed almost the whole week. and i should start work next week if i’m healthy so

i have hsv-1. normally it’s not TOO serious but this is my primary outbreak so the first time is always the worst, and genetically my family has always had it pretty bad.
so i’ve had bad lesions and blisters on the inside of my throat, cheeks, on my gums, and on my lips, as well as fevers in the 103-104 range. the worst part about it is being unable to eat (i haven’t eaten since last sunday, and today is sunday. so. seven days thus far, and i estimate i won’t be able to eat until tuesday maybe.) so i haven’t had a lot of strength to do anything. i lost all the color in my face (i’m literally a white sheet of paper rn) and i’ve lost a lot of weight, like my clothes don’t fit anymore. along with any muscle that i had in the first place. and there was really nothing i could do but try to take pain meds and wait it out.
unfortunately hsv-1 will be with me all my life. but future outbreaks should not be this devastating and dangerous for me. first one is always the worst, and i can take preventative measures next time when i feel it coming on!

thanks bud! yeah the last time i was this sick was... YEARS ago. i mean when i was still in the single digits. definitely was a bit worried there, and it's the first time i've ever had this (unfortunately i'll never NOT have it now pffft it'll be with me for the rest of my life, just less severe) pretty frightening experience. i've lost quite a bit of weight and i look and feel terrible ugh
i hope you feel better soon as well, whatever it is that's ailing you
