    Diagnosed yesterday... I feel numb

    Hey, I know exactly what you feel. I don’t know if I’ll ever tell anyone. I feel like what if one day someone tries to expose me online.. that would ruin my life potentially. I’m so afraid of falling for a man and telling him about my diagnosis an he doesn’t want to be with me. I feel like sex will be different for me now and everything.

    When you talk to your partners about it, how do you go about it? This is the part that has me the most afraid.

    Thank you everyone... so much... you won’t believe how these comments make me feel. I’m so thankful that I can talk to you all about it. It makes me not feel so alone.
  5. I just got the call yesterday that I have HSV2. The nurse nonchalantly said it like this isn’t something I have to live with forever. I left work early yesterday and didn’t go in today. I haven’t eaten or slept since the call. I feel disgusted and disappointed. I want to talk to my best friends or a co worker but I honestly don’t want anyone to know. The fact the I don’t know how I got it or when makes it worse. I’ve never had a outbreak and I’m beyond scared for when the first one happens. I just feel different. Like I’m not me anymore. I can’t look at pictures I just took days prior because it’s hurts that I’ll never be that happy again. I want to talk to my mom but she isn’t someone that receives this kind of information well. I don’t know how any man is going to want to be with me after I tell him. I don’t want to live my life with this disease. I’m 23 and I thought my life was going great. This is the worst way to start out the New Year. How can I cope with this? Any advice on how to live a productive life... or anything. I just feel so alone.
