Day 29

So...had my expectations, and today resolve removed Love's blog from their testimonials page. Fighter's blog is still there, rest assured. Oh well, I'm still pressing forward.

Day 28 Having my doubts...*sigh*

My skepticism meter is at an all time high right now if this really doesnt work, and I'm still giving it the benfit of the doubt...I'm heading here next. Go Florida!

Day 27

OHHH Holy menstrual cramps today!! R.I.P Michael Jackson...Im a huge fan, and despite his personal issues, he made amazing contributions to the music industry.

So, the southern pimples I had are gone today.

On Love's situation, I am going to give resolve the benefit of the doubt. Take cancer patients for example. Chemotherapy works for some, but not all. Sometimes it works, and then the cancer comes back. What is important to remember for all of us dealing with H, is that, like some cancer patients who go through chemotherapy for up to several years(Please don't forget how brutal chemo is), it may take a while. Yes, it says on the website 90 days. We are all different, I will be as patient as I have too.
I may suffer some repercussion for posting this, but I, and anyone else trying this understood the risk when we spent our money and committed ourselves emotionally and physically. If one day I am proven wrong, I'll admit it.

BTW...I am on yahoo as bionic_baby2001, if anyone would like chat with me sometime. I am quite friendly and entertaining lol. Oh...and the reason why I have weird usernames on some things is because I created them when I was like lie.

Day 26

So! The bad news is in, Love's recent blood test week this week showed that her HSV1 is back. Very interesting indeed! There is the possibility that she was reinfected somehow, but like I said in an earlier post in my blog, I have the sneaking suspicion that this stuff we are taking is just putting our H levels below the radar, where it will regenerate eventually (Given that even the tiniest bit of the virus WILL replicate). I am certainly hoping that the others who have had negative results retest themselves after a while, that seems to be the only way to tell if my theory has truth to it. Wish I was a doctor....
Very thought provoking situation,nonetheless,my prayers are for Love tonight.

As for me, I have an ache in my lower back. I didn't do anything to strain it, but it hurts :( Good night!

Day 25

Started 20 mL today...and noticed a whole bunch of southern area pimpleage as well. Pretty well depressed me, actually. Nothing substantial, they really just look like pimples.
While I have been on resolve, I have quit smoking, and have virtually drank nothing but water. I am human though, and have had the occassional coke or other flavored drink. It seems a bit odd how some other people on resolve seem to becoming pretty ill at some point during the detox...and I had only a head cold last week.I don't eat super healthy food, but I definitely eat better than roommate lol. I'm surprised my roommate doesn't weigh 300 pounds. At least I don't think my eating habits are bad... As I said in an earlier post, I've always had a pretty good immune system, ah sigh, I just really don't know. I figured my calender the other day...will be testing sometime in October. Someone else on blogspot needs to order a kit and start a blog, I don't want to be the last one!!
Prayers and good will for everyone, from this gal in Texas.

Day 24

I emailed resolve about my leaky bottle yesterday, and they told me I could substitute bottle A or C if I ran out but sent me a link to buy another Bottle B just in case. I think I'm going to just use what I have left here seeing as I have a quarter bottle left and only 12 days to go.
I started my period today, right on time. I think I've read a few blogs where some girls get outbreaks with their periods, not me...just unbearable cramps. It will be a few hours, but I'll be curled up in bed, or the bathtub, cursing the heavens for making me a woman.

Day 23

OH holy large sore on my rear end! I went to LA for the weekend, which just totally threw me off on my dosage. First, before I left, I was grabbing my luggage off and stool, and I hadn't zipped it yet, so as it fell, ALL my stuff, including my bottles, hit the floor. I think this is where I lost my doasge cup, so I had to run to a drug store first upon arrival. Friday was crazy too, I didn't get my first dose in until about 5 pm. I didn't get all the water I like to have while I was there either. I ate terribly too, mostly because my family that I was with likes burger joints...I did the best I could but not as good as I'd like. *sigh*
My luggage was "randomly" searched both ways... maybe because of the three large bottles tucked away at the bottom of the bag? I was so irritated though when I got home today, and opened my luggage and one of my bras was damp...bottle B leaked on the way home(Why God, Why?) I have about a quarter bottle left, and it's hard to tell if it will last, so I'm about to email resolve to ask what I should do if I run out.
As far as symptoms...I'm still coughing up a little mucus..I was a little embarrassed on the plane when I coughed a little. I didn't think people would buy it if I told them I wasn't sick I am detoxing lol. Better to cough a little than have bad BO on the plane, like the guy I sat next to from Minneapolis to Dallas. Oh, and then there is this sore on my left butt cheek that erupted Saturday. If the one I had on my face the other day was pimplezilla, then this is his Mom. I can feel it through my jeans.
Anyway, I didn't get to go surfing because it was like 60 degrees outside the whole weekend, and my $150 digital camera was stolen in Hollywood somewhere. So, I'm glad to be home... hope everyone else is doing ok!

Day 19

Ahhh...logged on to check everything and the two newest updates from people were pure good news, so I have to keep the good vibe going by posting something good too :)
I haven't had any trouble sleeping for two days in a row now! Finally! Hooray for this slumbering seaturtle.
I had some downstairs tingling going on about two days ago, but it went away the next day, so I'm going to say on day 17? I dunno, but it went away the next day. Like I've said before, I've never had a outbreak, and if I could go through my entire herpes experience without one...that would be even better. I was having a pretty bad day when I had the tingles, which is probably why I didn't post, I really thought I was having the prodome to an even WORSE day. But, two days later I feel fine again. Still a runny nose and the occasional hacking up of mucus, but better than an OB.
My sleep will be short lived, I have a 7 am flight to catch in the morning, ugh. I tell you guys, I am so not happy about having to go. I'll tell you this too, my crazy sibling is convinced that she and I are going to go to a club on Saturday night in West Hollywood and actually get in...WOW isn't she a dreamer. I told her even if we do make it in, I assure you my broke a$$ can't afford to be there. I'm going to tell her to do whatever she wants and I'm going to stay on the beach where it is safe :)
Of course, I'm about to email resolve to see if the minerals are OK to put in my luggage, I know they probably were flown over here from NZ in the first place, but that was when they were in concentrated form. Airlines don't allow you to carry bottles with you in yoyur carry-ons anymore, which I found out the hard way on a trip to Costa Rica last month. I figure the best thing to do is put the minerals at the bottom of my suitcase with my clothes and whatnot securing them in place. And cross my fingers that they don't lose my luggage...I have connecting flights both ways..eek.

Day 18 Bright and Early

Ok, it is now 7 am, and I am wide awake as I'd thought I'd stop by and say HAI.
Poor resolve! haha they must be so tired of hearing from me by now...if I even think of something remotely worth a question...I ask. I'm getting my money's worth over here, OK? Anyway, with the exception of my runny nose I still have, I feel fine.

Day 16 Pimplezilla has attacked!

I lay awake in bed last night as usual, and finally I cracked under pressure and took a sleeping pill. I don't like to put things in my body, ever, especially while I'm on resolve, as I don't want to exhaust my body, and don't want to run the risk of disturbing the minerals. I sound like I'm just totally in tune with nature here lol. I'm going to email resolve in a moment to ask about sleeping aids, even though the one I take is all natural. I'm pretty sure they are sick of hearing from me by now, but they are always polite and very prompt on replies.
I feel better than yesterday, although my throat is still a little sore, and I still have a a bit of sinus pressure, and some nasal drainage. Nothing debilitating, I'm up and about, but I'm going to ask resolve if I should drop back a few doses or if I should just continue along.
I also have a HUGE zit on my fore head. It almost looks like I have a horn. Like I said in an earlier post, I never broke out as a teenager and to do it now is messing with my head. I'm resisting the urge to pop it so it doesn't scar..but it's tempting.
I nicknamed it pimplezilla.
I'm going to go attempt to find a flight to california this friday, on a stupid business thing that was dropped on me just in the past week (Thanks to my family). At least I get to go surfing, sheesh.

Day 15...second time around

I was checking my calender last night...and somehow I got ahead a day. I thought it would be best to repeat day 15, and get back onb track, but I went on ahead and emailed resolve, so hopefully they agree.
Had a pretty emotional outburst last night, It's been 2 and half months since I was diagnosed with this, and last night was the first time I allowed myself to cry about it. I don't like to cry, so I don't let myself do it too often...I take it as a sign of weakness. I can only imagine how some of you who have had this for years feel. Society is cruel to people with this disease, or any STD for that matter. I'm on your side!
Lastly, ask and ye shall receive I suppose, because last night when I was laying awake as usual, it hit me at about six am. My nose drained, I started coughing, and got a headache. I FINALLY fell asleep at about 8 am and woke up still feeling pretty bad. I guess I got my wish, now let's see if I get the one I really test negative.

Day 15

I was reading one of my medical books yesterday(I am a med student, with plans to study...HIV. I just so happen to have H) and one of my text books says "taking certain antiviral drugs can drop HIV levels in the blood so low that it is undetectable, but the person is still a carrier of the virus." This got my mind working but there are a few problems with it first:
1) This is HIV, not HSV.
2) Resolve is not an antiviral (At least I don't think it is)
3) My textbook does not say that being "undetectable" means that the carrier will test negative when they do in fact have the virus. (Though I assume thats what it means)
Just brainstorming...I'm kind of a nerd.

Day 15

My lymph nodes stopped in and said hello again yesterday. Like I told spontaneous not too long ago, I have another symptom that I haven't been mentioning because I don't know if it is because of resolve or not: insomnia. The past couple of weeks, I lay awake until very late each night, but maybe it's just me.

Day 14 Maybe I'll just lick someone with a runny nose

I sure hope this is working...I am on day 14 and feel next to nothing. I'm a bit of an odd case I suppose because with the exception of strep(I'm not even sure if that is even a virus?) when I was 17, and H, I've never had any health problems. I was only diagnosed with H at the beginning of April, and have never even had a OB. It definitely seems like I am very prone to headaches lately...but mild ones, as all of my other symptoms have been. When I contact resolve between step 1 and step 2 I'll be sure to ask if having milder symptoms is better because it means you have less junk in your body to clear out, or if it would be better to really become ill. I am probably the only person in this world who wants to wake up and be sick!!
Anyway, since this blog represents Resolve and I know there are people who read this...anonymously (I was the creepy lurker too, at one time, until I stepped forth into the light). I'll go on ahead and say it even though I only 2 weeks along...I like resolve. I think that if the product does what it says it does, then for some people it may take a few protocols, because, I don't think everyone takes a look at themselves before they make their decision to try. In addition to H, what other ailments have you had in the past? More importantly, what is your lifestyle like right now? I am not trying to put anybody off, and I think I am starting to sound kind of like a resolve employee... but I'm not.
I'm doing the best I can to be honest and forthright and dole out the best guidance I have in me. With that said, I got some awesome coupons in the mail today for Bed, Bath, and Beyond, and I'm going to go use them :)

Day 13

Found this while surfing the internet, thought it was quite interesting

Day 12

I'm really not feeling anything anymore...besides this incessant headache. Like I said in my last post though, it's very mild, so it's not interfering with my day.

Day 10

I'm at my Mom's house for a couple of days, going to little sister's high shool graduation in the morning (commence the awww....) It's kind of odd when your little siblings are taller than you....and you can't boss them around anymore. Admit it, we all bossed around the little siblings.
I have a headache right now...a very small one. It seems as each little effect I notice is very mild, and if I wasn't keeping an eye out for them, I probably wouldn't notice them at all.
1. Acne
2. Southern area acne
3. swollen lymph nodes
4. headaches

Those are all of symptoms I've had so far...and all have been very,very mild.
I step up to 10 mL tomorrow...and have been very good about taking all of my doses each day and drinking plenty of water as well. I don't drink, but I have had a few cigarettes since I started the detox (When I say a few, I mean like one a day) I'm doing everything pretty normally...I have a coke to drink if I feel like it, that sort of stuff. Resolve said that you didn't have to go on a special diet while you're on the detox, and I don't eat unhealthily by any means, but I'm not a health nut either. I like to keep a happy medium, because resistance to chocolate is futile for me. :)
Anyway, enough rambling about my eating habits...I got my pin number from tstd from the test I took in March, so here it is for all to enjoy: 425758-8643800
I hope I never have to look a positive results again.

Day 8 "Has anyone seen my lymph nodes?"

So later on that night after posting, I got a headache, went to sleep, and the next morning felt completely fine. No more lymph node action. I miss it because it kinda made me say YAY, it is working, even though tender lymph nodes meant a little discomfort. The instructions say all of the side effects shouldn't last more than five days, or you should drop back on doses, so I'm wondering if that was a good thing.
With the exception of a few pesky pimples, I feel fine. I am pretty young, and have always had a pretty good immune system, plus I was just diagnosed with H, so I'm pretty confident about this working for me.
Anyway, I know you are all dying to see my positive results that I got in April, and I'm dying as well to post them, because I am a real person, really suffering with H. I don't want to be written off as someone that works for resolve, because I do not. I'm just like you :) I lost the pin number they gave me, or I think I may have just eliminated it from my email because I was so worked up over finding out I had H at the time. I am going to call tstd today to try to retrieve it, and it I am not able to do that, I will go get tested next week sometime,solely for the sake of this blog and all of those who read it and are curious about this product.
Until next time!

Day 4 I don't know if it curing me of H, but there are definitely some effects. Started breaking out (acne) the next morning, and I never broke out as a teenager, so to have this happening now is kind of messing with my head a little bit. I even have a few zits on my back, ew.
Definitely some lymph node pressure today...still going about doing my regular day to day things, not violently ill, but I hope I don't end up having to lay up for a few days while I'm doing this, but if it means being cured of H, I guess it will be worth it. Hope it works!
