Now I'm single but still have HSV

Recommended Posts



I'm writing this from the couch. In my pajamas. I have been here all day because my Fiancée and I finally reached the end of the rope.


As if a split like this isnt traumatic enough, I now have to be reminded that I am no longer eligible for companionship experience ever again.


I'm so sad.

Hey FML,


I'm sorry it didn't work out. I know it hurts. Breaking up is always hard to do when you really care about someone and it sounds like you cared about this guy. It's common to feel the way you feel (I know I did for quite a while). And I know it hurts. Feels like there's no possible way that anyone will ever want someone with herpes, right? And realize it's just how you feel right now in this moment. It's not the truth. It just seems like it. Don't shortchange yourself and your future by convincing yourself of things that will make you sad or feel like less of a person. You deserve to feel happy. And you deserve to mourn, too. Feel sad if it feels healthy to feel that. And also realize you have a whole loving community here to support you when you need it.


  • My mother is now in hospice with end-stage cancer, so I am at her house a lot these days helping where I can until she passes. Thank you in advance for understanding if I am not as quick to respond as I normally would be. This is a precious and bittersweet time …
