Positive Herpes Test Results

Recommended Posts

So, I got my test back today. After about an hour of screaming "why me?" at my walls, I decided to calm down. My life isn't over, right? How did you coped with the first time you got positive results? Are there things I need to be immediately aware of in my life that will change?

Heya Jojo!


Welcome to the forums! You've come to the right place for a super solid way to know that your life is indeed not anywhere near being over. I promise you.


The blog is a great place to start for the way you think about having herpes and how it's ultimately mostly up to you how it affects you. Here are some good articles/videos to start with (as well as all the videos/articles on HerpesLife.com):





... and as far as the logistical side of things, here are some helpful links for that:

Hi Jojobean :)


I hope you are feeling better since you got your results back. I know all too well how you feel! I was not well mentally and emotionally for my first month of living with herpes.

I found out in March of this year, and honestly? I feel 99% back to my old self already.

I can only offer you my words that it WILL get better. And easier. And with time this dreadful thing you've been freaked out over is going to be put on the back burner of your life.


Take time to pamper yourself now, any chance you get. Eat your favorite meal. Rest. That's what I did for about my first week to cope. I also did as much research as i could and was NOT afraid to ask my doctor a billion questions. I definitely went through a grieving process, but am now stronger because of it. And you will be, too :x
