Hi Kat07, and welcome to the forum!

Oh how I remember those feelings. I never thought they would change or I would ever feel "normal" again. It might be hard to believe right now, but you will feel better, sooner than you think.

This is a great place to meet people going through the same emotions. Everyone is in a different place, so it's good to hear from all stages of the roller coaster you are speaking of.

Read all you can to learn about the virus. The more you know, the less scary it is. Knowledge of the virus takes the mystery out of it, helps with managing it, and getting your life back. ;)

I definitely know how you feel. Its a big shock at first. Im still dealing with the shock, but the more and more you think about it, its not the end of the world. Yeah, its embarrassing, painful and a hell of alot of other things, but its not a death sentence and well all learn to live with it eventually, we have no other choice. Everyones here to support eachother so if you ever wanna talk feel free to send me a message

      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.
