over thinker/stresser

hi there. I've always been somewhat hypochondriac but lately it's gotten worse. I was pretty recently diagnosed with herpes and know that being happy and healthy is the way to prevent out breaks. I've never really had that strong of an immune system, and always go against my word and do things to not benefit this fact (drinking excessively, staying up late, etc). so of course, right after my first out break, I started getting tingling which hints at a new out break. the other night as I was falling asleep I started over analyzing everything going on in my body at the moment and found no hope that I would ever be normal again. I wasn't able to sleep or stop stressing for two hours about things I knew and assumed were wrong with me. I know that if my thoughts continue down this negative and stressful path, I will be having outbreaks constantly forever... and I just want to be as normal as possible with herpes. I need to talk to someone about this, but could I talk to a doctor at a clinic about this orrrr? I'm just a bit lost and hopeless at the moment.

Well a doctor at a clinic could refer you to someone. Are you taking medication for your outbreaks? Not to pry, but are you referring to mouth soars when you say herpes?
