17 and new to the site

Recommended Posts

lostandfound

I just came across this site a few days ago and decided to join. It looks like it would help me alot . I found out I had HSV2 days after turning 16 . I have not looked at my future the same since. I can deffinitley say the virus has made me mature alot. I can also say it deffinitley fkn SUCKS and i miss sex when i didnt have to worry about spreading it. >:l

I felt like i was alone as a teen who has the virus but after seeing the posts on the site I feel a bit better about myself knowing I am not the person going through this at such a young age.

:wavey:

Well I know how you feel I got it before I turned 18 and it really slows you down and makes you think bout somethings... But just look at the bright side you have your family there to support you through all of this and you do mature alot more because you have alot to think bout when you go to lay down with someone else....

Hey lostandfound. I'm 17 and was just diagnosed. Your future isn't going to be any worse, if anything, it'll be better. It took me a whole to realize that. You can still have a great relationship with someone who really cares about you. If anything, you'll be watching who you're sexually active with more and that will help protect you against other diseases. I've really come to appreciate when I'm healthy and don't have an OB, I eat better, exercise, and just feel better and don't take anything for granted. There are so many worse diseases out there, this one won't stop your life!

Yes I have looked on the bright side of this all and saw that it can motivate me more to take better care of myself. Actually , Since I have found out I have not touched a ciggerette and have been hitting the gym more often. & you are right there are many worse diseases out there that I should be glad I don't have.

thanks girl :)

      Hey so I have told a few people when I was first diagnosed and panicky. My mother knows, and 3 close friends and honestly to my surprise they were very supportive and just wanted to make sure I was okay, they still invite me out like usual nothing has changed and atleast one of them gets oral coldsores it's the same damn thing. I dont tell coworkers I draw the line there and I don't tell men who are interested in me it's not their business unless I choose to become physical with them and therefore risk transmition. I have been dating through a herpes dating site and it's been working out well for me I'm not totally sure I want to be "out" to everyone because the world is still the world and their are immature people out there.

      Just tell him you have been thinking about it and you want to go get tested with him. Don't believe anyone until you see their paperwork

      Amazon has it in bulk and caps

      Make sure you see his results on paper!!!

      I've used it to effectively abort an outbreak immediately. See here: Pretty convinced of the combo for this. Never had any success like that before ever. Will 100% keep using it.
