Is there life after herpes

Recommended Posts

LifeIsUnexpected

I am newly diagnosed, yesterday I got my results as a matter of fact. It was a long, scary, and exhausting week. I feel as if my doctor was of no help. She came in, gave me the results, said here's a script you can either take it daily or just during an outbreak, and told me to come back next week for more cervix cancer testing. The guy that I have been sleeping with for over a year is getting his results today. I'm confused that my blood work showed positive, but a year ago it was negative and I have never had any symptoms or anything! This guy was just a friend with benefits and I am surprised that he didn't cut and run on me. He came over last night to try to comfort me. I guess I should be thankful that he is willing to hang out and be there for me. But the long term of he and I being together will never happen. I guess I figured that if he has it and I do also, we just as well step it up and date, because I can't see life with someone that doesn't have this. UGH!!!!!! FML!

I married the woman who gave me herpes. BIG mistake. We struggled on for 5 years but in the end just fought like cat and dogs. Relationships are hard enough and if the only thing you have in common is a shared std then you're in for a tough time. Dont worry, there will be lots of eligible men for you to choose from and if someone cares enough about you then the fact of you having herpes will be of very little consequence.

Thank you! I am just lost, scared, and unsure of what life is going to be like now. I think I am still trying to wrap my head and my heart around this. I never thought this would happen to me and here I am. I know I still have so much to learn about it, but everything I read just sends me into panic and makes me confused. Maybe I should just stay away from site until I have fully accepted what has been handed to me. I guess being hit with having H and the pre-cancer cell on cerivx all in one day might have sent me over the edge.
