Mr. Christopher, you writing sound so sweet and I've read your blog on your site too.
For the most part I love it.
I really don't agree with you when your state that make peace with herpes 2 virus.
You really believe herpes will make peace with you? I don't think so. If they have a life, they eat and multiply! Sooner or later, instead of dorman in your spin or behind your ears, they will travel all over your stinkin body, eat everything else you've got. Or the virus will mutate into a stronger one of different species.
Your body is for you to live freely not share with deadly herpes virus. I'm sorry, your 14 years of herbalist doesn't sound knowledgeable. You tell people to give up and to live with it. Like if you can't beat them, join them. The problem is, will it join with you, after it mutate.
