Hello, I have herpes

Recommended Posts

I am 29 years and I was recently diagnosed with HSV-2 the beginning of 2013 and I haven't told a soul. I want to tell someone, to get the burden off my shoulders, but the idea of telling any of my friends and/or family sends me into tears. I know that in reality 'h' is not a life threatening condition, but I still feel very ashamed of myself. I think my shame comes from the years of always using protection, only to find out that my care was for nothing. My problem has been learning to accept my new condition and to move on but I'm finding difficulty since I won't tell anyone, that is why I am here on this site. I'm very frustrated about this whole situation. I'm ashamed, angry, and saddened. I'm looking for help in recovery.

Hi Karlie. It's really hard to keep things in. But here you have an outlet with caring and loving people.


But on the other hand my mom was the first person that I freaked out to about my test results and I was blown away by the support that I had through her even.


Here's wishing you good thoughts and know that everyone here is here for you. :)

Thank you abbyroad78 and Redred for your kind words and support. I do feel a bit better since I posted on this site. It is wonderful to know that there are people out there that I can relate to and that they understand. It makes it easier, thank you :)
