I have a herpes outbreak right now, and it is pretty painful. I thought that I was not going to have one again, or maybe I was just being overly optimistic. It had been over a year since my last outbreak, and before then, I would get the more frequently. I mistakenly thought that I was free of such problems, but now I am trying to read about a herpes cure, and progress that is being made towards one. I feel like it should be on the horizon, because I do not see why a certain type of virus should be untreatable.
