Diagnosed a few days ago....

Recommended Posts


When the doctors told me I have genital herpes, I thought my life was over forever(because all they only told me " I have herpes, they can't stop it only control it"), I'm usually a strong person but I couldn't stop crying, my heart felt like it dropped into my stomach, my mind was racing, it took several people to calm me down... I even confronted the two possible men I could of got it from n they both CLAIM to be clean witch I think is complete B.S..... BUT with a little support and a lot of research I have realized Herpes hasn't affected me as much as I thought, I'm not proud that I have it but hey.. What doesn't kill you makes you STONGER:confused:

Great outlook! I like your post. I feel the same. I have had it many years and it has never stopped me from doing anything or anyone I wanted.

Did you know there is a support group in Philly? The one here really helped me when I was first diagnosed:
