I'm new here and looking for support

It's going to be okay.

If you haven't already, go see a doctor and ask about suppression medicine like valacyclovir (val-ah-psych-low-veer), or valtrex.

It will help you get symptoms under control, and also helps to prevent transmission when taken daily.


Try to focus your thoughts on the most positive future you can imagine, with plenty of excitement and fulfillment. Because it's not that far off.

Try to love yourself and if you need to, re-earn your self respect.

Being diagnosed with herpes effects your self-image primarily. Be aware of how you think about yourself, and understand that all of the fear and anxiety are unfounded and unrealistic.

You're still the same person as always, with all the right qualities to lead a good life including love, success and happiness.

Thank you for your encouraging and inspiring words. Lately I just been feeling overwhelmed and emotional because it’s like I have this external score that I have to live with it but as I take it day by day and try to understand and just relax and not think about it it gets better and yeah you’re right I can live a normal life it’s just that road of acceptance and trying to live with dad and make sure I don’t stress out and trying to focus more on the positive and the good instead of the negative and bad. so I think you so much for commenting and so much for your words
