I hear you PFK. I had assumed the same thing when I first got herpes. Then I went through such a dark place of keeping myself isolated from even the POSSIBILITY of being rejected that I didn't actually let myself live. When I had the courage to face my fears, I realized that 90% of the fears were bullshit. ;) They didn't end up being true.


What proof do you have that that's the way it's going to be? Or is this all in your imagination based on the stigma and hype around herpes? It takes courage to confront our self-limiting assumptions.

I was just diagnosed with herpes about a month ago, and that is the way I felt too. I'm a freshman in college, and so I assumed automatically that nobody would be interested in me and judge me...but I find that I am being complimented and that people still want to get to know me. Plus, there are tons of therapeutic vaccines being studied right now that will change a lot of things for us with the H...it might not be forever so don't give up!!

This is a great video. I'm hoping awareness and research continues and speeds up. I'm a hoping with michael Douglas announcement about how hpv is suspected to have been a possible influence to his cancer will help promote education and funding for research for hpv and hopefully other stds like hsv.

Yes, I agree, Max_G ... holding out hope is okay. But betting on it will just postpone life. ;) I'll be pleasantly surprised if it happens, but I'm living my life fully in the meantime. Have you read this blog article?
