Feeling so guilty of possible transmission and not disclosing

Recommended Posts

I am a female who was diagnosed with HSV type 2 in the beginning of October. In November, I was getting quite a few outbreaks but come december I luckily had none. I take pretty good care of myself, I workout almost everyday and try to always eat as healthy as possible. I had abstained from sex since my initial diagnosis, but last week I got super drunk and had sex with a mutual friend. I feel so guilty that I might've given him something because it was unprotected and I was not in the right mind set to disclose my situation. I'm not on suppressive meds, but I have been paranoid of any possible triggers turning into potential outbreaks that I was taking 500mg valtrex off and on during the time of the incident. I don't have his number so I can't contact him, he's my friends boyfriend's friend and I feel SO awful. Knowing the way I got herpes and how the person never told me has really scarred me and I wouldn't wish how I felt during my diagnosis on anyone. I don't know what overcame me that night to think not saying anything was ok. Help. I feel so guilty.
