rainy day

Hi there

Recommended Posts

rainy day

I just wanted to introduce myself. I was just "diagnosed" I put that in parenthesis since my tests havent came back yet. Though I know in my heart that I have herpes. I made a post in another thread with my story, so I won't write the book again over here! :p

At the moment I feel emotionally better about things than I did yesterday but I still feel pretty numb. Really, I don't know what to think, though its probably a good thing I feel like this right now. I just got over PPD so I hope this doesn't set me back a little.

With the exception of my dear hubby I don't have anyone to talk to about this. No way could I tell my friends and family so I do feel sad and alone about that. :( All day today I've kept thinking wherever I was, (at the grocery) there is someone here who has herpes. (in the parking lot) same thing. Maybe one of my friends? But its something nobody talks about. So I feel alone. I feel frustrated. I still have so much to learn about all of this, I hope ya'll can educate me!:rolleyes:

Anyway hello and I hope to make some new friends.

Definitely read up on all of the information on this site! I also recommend www.herpesisnormal.com and http://loveinthetimeofherpes.blogspot.com. I was the same as you as in I pretty much knew I had herpes before I was officially diagnosed. At first I was nervous about researching things, but once I started to I feel so comfortable and really want to educate others about it! I'm glad your husband is being a good support!! This board is such a blessing with all of the empathy and support you have available too.

      Any advice on on how i can change the way she thinks of her insecurities in the event I ever see her again or hang out with her or do you guys think that it's better too just walk away. The truth is though i never met another girl like her before and she was fine with me having herpes i could tell by the she reacted too it . How do you change the way someone views them self that has low self esteem.

      Note @Asr624 that an IgM result does not confirm a herpes diagnosis. Was the rash swabbed as well?

      Yes it's entirely possible that he didn't know and just now gave it to you. I've been with my husband almost 19 years and he was recently tested and is still negative. It's still possible of course that I could give it to him at any point. Sounds like you have a strong marriage and there is no reason this needs to be an issue other than a minor annoyance. I have 2 healthy children and have had no related medical issues due to HSV.

      I have been with him and didn’t tell him and now I can’t tell him because I know it would ruin any chance of reconciliation. I don’t want to live with this and I don’t want to live without him

      I am so sorry that happened to you. No one deserves that. Praying for you.
