First - Welcome! Glad you found us!!!


Honey - you are EXACTLY where most people are when they join on here ... scared and convinced that you are now some kind of diseased creature that noone will love. And I'm here to tell you that it's not at all true and that (as your BF has shown), unconditional love is UNCONDITIONAL ... he's placing his love and caring for you above a little virus .... and your job now is to ALLOW him to continue to love you and not buy into the "I'm damaged and unlovable" BS that may be going through your head right now ;)


I know you will find lots of support and love on here while you navigate your new reality ... read as much as you can and reach out for support when you need it.... that's what we are here for.


And make sure to get your BF in for testing - odds are he needs to be treated for Chlamydia or he will just pass it back to you again ... and it will help you to know if he has it as far as sorting out whether you want to go on supressive therapy or not. There's no right or wrong way to proceed but you both need to get educated and then decide what course of action works for you both....
