I always felt so alone

Recommended Posts


I'm new to using a support site.....I always felt I had to go thru this alone. I was diagnosed many many years ago. I havent had a break out in about a year or so. I've always felt so ashamed, that I had done something to deserve this. Logically I know that isnt true but I still struggle when I have to tell someone about it. I'm scared and worried I'll be rejected.

You and me both

I was diagnosed with hsv2Gh about 14 years ago. And I then hid in my apartment and did not go out, except to work, for 10 years. Finally, I decided I wanted to try and live again, not merely exist. So now I am socializing again for the first time in years.

I right now havent socialized with anyone or had a relation for almost 3 years,But Im on my way.Well atleast trying to get myself healthy and feel more confident like I used to be.

I havent been diagnose with herpes but have had an oral outbreak and It still hasnt concerned me about if future relationships are gonna fail or be rejected because I maybe carrying it.Im more concered of my well beign,since the past relationships I had werent very meningful.

I say the people that dont comprehence about you having this very common virus and not giving the chance to work on the relationship is better off with out.Atleast when you find someone that accepts you is the person you want to be around.

      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.
