Questions and need a friend

Hi everyone,

I recently found out from a painful OB that I have hsv2 and I can’t say that I’ve handled it well. I tried to bury myself in work during the days and at nights I numb it with a ton of booze. I know I can’t continue this or I’ll burn out but at the moment I can’t seem to snap out of it. I feel like I can’t tell the people I know and love not only from the shame of it all but I have so many questions that I know they won’t be able to answer. I’ve been lathering myself with soap and sanitizer daily with high hopes that I’ll feel less gross. I know it’s not good to think this way but my docs office didn’t provide me with much besides a positive diagnosis and I have so many things to ask. I guess my hopes here are for someone who is willing to talk it out with me because I’m scared and I feel like I’m in the corner.
