I was diagnosed with herpes in March .. I can't find a way to cope with it ... My boyfriend/ex (it's complicated) is the one that gave it to me .... But I feel like to him it's ok to continue spreading this thing without letting anyone know .. I cry myself to sleep sometimes .. But I really hope my life could become normal .. And that I will find my one and only out there some day

Wow .. I wish I was like her ... Sometimes I wish I was t alive .. There is no point in living .. In my eyes .. I can't have the family I wanted .. A husband .... Nothing because of what I have ... I am 21 .. And barely started living .. No one is ever going to want to be with me
Don’t talk like that. We all feel that way at first!!! You can still have a family kids anything that you want!!! Try to accept it n move on!!! Being depressed isn’t going to make it better. @Mexicangirl94
You need to learn about me having herpes and understand that it is not the end of your life. there are some risk in transmedia to another person but you can still have a relationship you can still have children and their many people living with herpes her in this situation you will see on the site but there are people in relationships and he have children so just move forward because it is something you can't change that doesn't mean it has changed your life
@lisajd thank you so much that meant a lot to me
Oh yeah there's lots of people that will want you its not a death sentence you have to accept it an go forward its rampant just have to date an use protection if your new parter isn't positive there's lots of people who have this an when u find your new mate it probably will last be selective cheers
I'm kind of in a similar situation, i found out that my ex didn't tell the next person he was with. That was a HUGE wake up call...I was never given the choice to make about my own body, but i would never take that right away from someone else. I think that it has helped me shape how I will have that conversation with someone when the time comes. Just know that you are courageous and strong, and in the end someone will respect you way more when you're honest. In the end, you would want someone to be honest about things with you, whether its about sexual health or something else, so you can only do the same. I think that it's a real and honest conversation and speaks volumes of you when the time comes to have it. Keep your head up, its far from the end :) If you let the virus define you, then it actually will..people feed off your perception of it. That was the biggest piece of advice I got from this group. If you are hysterical when you tell someone, you give them the impression that it will ruin their life, but if you act like it's no big deal, then they are much more likely to be more receptive!
Hey the right person out there will accept you for you no matter what. I got genital herpes a little over a year ago, and i told my boyfriend at the time before doing anything with him and he accepted me with it. people will accept you with it, it has been done.
