Hi everybody...

Im glad I found this site, makes me feel less lonely with this. Nobody knows (besides my ex), that i have herpes and I feel like I am never going to be able to sleep with somebody again, I dont think I could cause this pain to anyone. I am only 20 years old and I dont know how to feel better and not dirty.

I admire all of you for your strenght! and hope that some day I'll be able to feel normal again.

Wow, I am going through the exact same thing. So from one person in this situation to another...please do not feel that way. You are not hopeless, you are not dirty, but you are worthy. And you should know that. I understand that this is something that is extremely hard to come to grips with...I admit, I haven't even gotten over the initial shock/shame myself. But I've learned not to beat myself up about it. I've learned that this is a new lifestyle that I must become accustomed to. Sure enough, the social stigma associated with this condition is primarily negative...but WE have a chance to change that. And it starts from within...We are blessed. Because we now have the knowledge and power to bring awareness to this issue and educate others. You CAN live a healthy, fulfilling lifestyle with this condition..you CAN go on to have healthy, loving, long-lasting relationships and much more. You CAN live a normal life because the fact of the matter is that YOU haven't changed. You are still the same person you have come to know and love before acquiring this condition. And I must add...if having HSV2 is the worst thing someone can say about us, then we all must indeed be wonderful people :-). Last but not least, be thankful that you still have a life to live, because of all the possible things that could've gone wrong, i assure you you that is something minor. Although you and I (and lots of other users of this site) are in the same boat, we can all learn alot from each other. That's what we are here for...to educate and to uplift...and I hope that I have been able to do either for you today!!!

Hello and Welcome

It took me a year to understand how minor this is in respect to my life. Like you I vowed to never sleep with anyone again, how could I open up and even begin to tell someone I have herpes. I was ashamed and embarrassed. You will feel normal again, you will understand that this does not define you as a person. One day you will even find someone who will see past this and love you for the person you are, not judging you based on a virus they may not even understand. We are all in this together, and this site has done so much for me, I hope it will do the same for you.

Stay strong,

Jae

      I have had a monogamous relationship for the last 6 years.  I did not have Herpes before the relationship.  My partner recently had an outbreak on the buttocks and was diagnosed with HSV2 about 2 months ago.  She said it was the first outbreak She had ever had. She has been taking valacyclovir for the last 2 months and we were intimate for the first time in about 4 months about a week ago.  Now I have an outbreak on my upper lip.  I read that this is not impossible, but rare. I wanted to ask others opinions on how HSV2 works, as I cannot help but find the situation really strange.  I totally understand that HSV2 can lie dormant for years, displaying no symptoms.  My partner says She has not been unfaithful, and I decided to believe her.  However, with this outbreak, a new doubt crept in, as I think it's really odd I would get an outbreak a week after being intimate, knowing I didn't have this before our relationship. I would appreciate hearing if this is possible, I love my partner and can't bear the doubt, but also don't want to feel I might be being blind.

      Hello, Im in the UK and have recently been diagnosed with herpes 2.  I am still coming to terms with it but i am keen to consider the stigma surrounding herpes.   If you don't mind.... would you tell me if you have told many people you have it?  What was their reaction?  Thanks guys x

      Hi Guys! I am newly diagnosed with HSV-2 and its the 7th day and my 1st outbreak is over. One week before the diagnosis I was at the prime of my life and the news gave me depression and I wanted to commit suicide knowing that I have a stigmatized NO CURE DISEASE. After a lot of research online I came across the combination herpes cure that I need to try. I have already chatted the support and they are quite informing in their responses about the 4-6 months protocol. Anybody who has tried it kindly share your sentiments and I will appreciate the insights... I feel pity for my life dear God why me please...

      Hi Guy! I am also two weeks into my first outbreak. This has made me do a lot of research for a permanent cure. I have seen Synergy Pharmaceuticals from Australia selling the combination herpes cure. Has anyone come across this? Does it look legit?

      I do pick them and pop them a lot so I think I’m just making it worse! Do they look like herpes to you though ?
