OB is making me have a melt down

Recommended Posts

Getting an OB is making me feel like the first time I got the news of having Herpes, I sitting here in my bedroom dying to cry my eyes out but holding back because I have family members who are here with me right now and have no idea of what I go through. I just cant imagine the rest of my life feeling this way, and I hate myself for feeling so weak knowing that there are people going through worse things than this. I cant help it I pitty myself so much. im only 22 and im going to be dealing with this for the rest of my life and it makes me feel so sad. Every time I get an OB I don't want to feel this way. I want to make my Immune system stronger I don't know how to make it stronger. I don't want to take the pills for Herpes that the doctor prescribes. Its been 5 long months since finding out I have Herpes and it hasn't been easy but I have come a long way from that person who I became who just wished to die and thought of suicidal thought.


I'm really thanksful for this website because I honestly don't know where I would be right now.

I got it at 17 ... I'm 53. I never worried about "dealing with it"... I just lived with it. Back when I was diagnosed, the stigma wasn't there (or I was never aware of it) ... it sucked because I had given it to my (now ex) hubby but we both just shrugged and got on with life. I had 2 beautiful girls, have lived a very full life and have not had too many "bad" experiences dating post-divorce)... yeah, a couple guys walked when I disclosed but looking back on it, they were all likely looking for one night stands or FWB.


Look - you can choose to convince yourself that your life is over, or you can shake it off and realize that there it a lot more to life than this little PITA (or other nether regions) virus.


I don't know if I gave you the links to the Alternative treatments links but here they are ... hopefully something here will help you to get the OB under control ;)
