I want to move on from this


Recommended Posts

I was diagnosed over five years ago and still cannot seem to move on. When I found out I was devastated, lost, confused, and broken. Didn't want to tell anyone with the fear of judgment and rejection. After my first outbreak I was able to move on and distract myself with others things but never dated or had sex since the diagnoses. Everyone in my life wants to know why I am not married with kids and I cannot seem to share my situation. I am finally at the point in my life where I want to move pass this and find someone to start my life with but cannot even imagine telling someone that I am infected. I joined this site in hopes to talk openly about my situation for the first time since the diagnoses and be about to finally move past this. I do not want this to control my life and I want/deserve to be happy.
