People are more accepting than I thought.

Recommended Posts

I told my best friend recently that I have herpes. I expected for her to look at me in disgust or something, but she didn't! She understood and comforted me. I was so relieved, because I was so afraid if I told my friends they'd ostracize me. Obviously, I had nothing to worry about.

On another note, I had been talking to a guy on a social network and he kept saying he wouldn't mind dating me. I replied with, "I'm not sure about that, you don't know how many skeletons I have in my closet." He said, "Try me."

So, I told him. He immediately said, "I'm so sorry, hun." He completely understood and accepted it. He told me that he doesn't care and that he still has the desire to be with me. I started crying because I've been so afraid that people wouldn't love me anymore because of it. He showed me that there are caring and loving people out there who don't let the social stigmata get to them!

I hope everyone has positive reactions like I had. Everyone deserves to be loved and wanted.

I'm really happy for you. It really is a good feeling when you find people who are willing to accept you either way. People who research and get informed instead of being ignorant about the whole situation.

Keep the good news coming. Too many people worry about all the negative, and it's not because they have nothing positive in their lives, but because they're too busy being pessimists to notice the rest.

      I had my first outbreak in June, very close to the date of your post. I healed up before the end of the month and it was about as many as you mentioned. I have gHSV1. The test was done on the left under the head of my penis because I had mostly healed by the time I made it to the doctor. There has been pain ever since in that one spot, but there hasn’t been any outbreaks. There are visible red spots that seem to linger forever. I’m a little concerned about this. Overall I’m lu it it is bite type 2 and I am doing my best to manage it. I hope you are doing well also since June. My wife and I (who I think I got it from) use condoms to prevent her from contracting it genitally. It’s a much more serious problem for women than men, as it can be internal for them and affect childbirth. Condoms are critical until a cure comes around, and there looks to be promising research. Hope you are well.

      I have been suffering from nerve pain after my first outbreak in June. Today I tried a charlotte’s web salve product and it took the pain away. I wouldn’t use it during an active outbreak though for risk of spreading it.

      Unfortunately that is the most common place men get infected!

      They are not the yardstick that you measure your worth with! It also tells you something about each and every one of them! To the ones you treated you well before I would personally talk to them and see if that was actually what he said to them? Maybe he said something different?

      I just disclosed to a man who works in the medical field and he didn't make a big deal at all. He shared his sti results w me I didn't see HSV1 on the test report, so I asked him about it and that opened up the discussion. The discussion of it was maybe 2 sentences tops. That was reassuring. We've since had sex and there was no hesitation or weirdness. So I recommend dating people w medical knowledge
