Recommended Posts

New to the site and the diagnosis. I thought about finding a support group in my area, but after reading some of the stories on here, I figure that this would be the best place for me to start. I'm 25 years old and have been through a lot of storms; I made a lot of mistakes and never had any regrets until recently. I would be handling this a lot better if there were a cure. How do I go on?????? :confused:

You will learn that the stigma about this virus is complete nonsense, and the medical issue is usually a small one in peoples lives. The virus has been hosting on humans for over 4500 years. Long long long time. I have carried HSV2 for over 32 years and it has been a minor issue in my life.

Hi teachme2love,

I'm new as well. I think once you get past social stigma your A okay. It will get easier with time.

Thanks for responding. I think right now its more so of having the actual symptoms, because I see it and feel it on a daily basis. Once I stop obing so much I'm sure I won't think about it as often and will get to the point where it only plays a minor part in my life. The social stigma might be one of those things that takes a while. I was okay with being single when the ball was in my court; now I'm even more scared of rejection than ever before. Looking forward to the time when it becomes easier!
