Herpes-A Change for the Better?

Recommended Posts

I just found out I have HSV-1 a little under a month ago so I have a lot of questions. I also have a lot of sadness and hopelessness right now. I was just wondering if anyone had any success stories, or ways this has impacted your life in a positive way. I just want to know what type of GOOD things can come and change from this discovery.


Knowing some of the good things this has caused or ways it has changed someone for the better would help me see what positive outcome I may be able to someday have.

Thank you so much for posting these links, @WCSDancer2010. I really needed to read these. After a few weeks of starting to feel a bit better, three months after my diagnosis, I have had a few extremely low days where I've started to get all caught up in anger, self-pity and stressing so hard again over what I can't change (that I contracted herpes) and losing focus on the momentum I had been building, in learning to take care of myself and getting adjusted to the new normal. These are helping to pull me out of that funk.
