I am still me!

Recommended Posts

I found out about a month ago. I have HSV1. I knew I was going to get it because the guy that I was dating has it. When I found out it wasn't so bad because he was there for me. But now I am bummed. Several days ago I caught him sleeping with his ex..the one who gave it to him. I haven't told any of my friends that I had HSV1 until 2 days ago. They really don't look down on me. They all tell me that it will be ok and that they are here for me. Although I know I have a great support system I am still bummed. For losing him, learning how to go on with my life living with HSV1 and even better, my bithday is tomorow. I guess just like everyone else when they first find out, the thought of who will want me now replays over and over in my head. I guess if I meet someone I just have to be honest from the start. I don't want to get my heart broken and I don't want to break anyone's heart by not being honest. I am still the same person. I just hope that one day I find that mature male who will look beyond it and see me for me.

Thanks for letting me get that out! :)

Hi StillSmiling, hope you had a good birthday and that you are indeed still smiling. I can relate to a lot of what you are saying in your post and just wanted to say you are not alone and are supported here. I've had my genital hsv1 diagnosis for just over a week and I'm still obsessing about it. Good luck with your situation! Hugs...
