Thought I say hello!

I guess I should have come here about 10 months ago when I first contracted this crap. It's been very hard doing this alone. Thanks to all that help here.

Butterfly of the Moment

Hello there, I joined the day I was diagnosed almost 2 years ago (wow!) People on here really helped me work through my feelings and helped me educate myself. I stopped coming on this site for a few months (just living my life and didn't have too much time or a desire to get on the internet)...but life goes on whether or not you want it to. If you don't train yourself to think positively life is going to be harder and sadder than it should. I am still with my boyfriend of many years who did not even think twice about being with me after I told him...we don't even talk about it anymore (just because it's not something we think about that much anymore). Of course I recently experienced the death of someone very precious to me so that put quite a few things in perspective. It was never really about me having the virus that brought me down, it was the ignorant opinions and distorted views others held that affected me. Now, I only care about the opinions of those I care about and who care about me. My medical health is no ones business but my own...You take care of yourself.

      Any advice on on how i can change the way she thinks of her insecurities in the event I ever see her again or hang out with her or do you guys think that it's better too just walk away. The truth is though i never met another girl like her before and she was fine with me having herpes i could tell by the she reacted too it . How do you change the way someone views them self that has low self esteem.

      Note @Asr624 that an IgM result does not confirm a herpes diagnosis. Was the rash swabbed as well?

      Yes it's entirely possible that he didn't know and just now gave it to you. I've been with my husband almost 19 years and he was recently tested and is still negative. It's still possible of course that I could give it to him at any point. Sounds like you have a strong marriage and there is no reason this needs to be an issue other than a minor annoyance. I have 2 healthy children and have had no related medical issues due to HSV.

      I have been with him and didn’t tell him and now I can’t tell him because I know it would ruin any chance of reconciliation. I don’t want to live with this and I don’t want to live without him

      I am so sorry that happened to you. No one deserves that. Praying for you.
