You are definitely not alone! Just look at this site. But I remember it certainly feels that way when you are first diagnosed. I'm glad you found us! It really helps to use this site to educate yourself about your new diagnosis, and to chat with those of us who have been through what you are going through now.

Hi darling.

I was diagnosed last month.. this site is a godsend. Check out the chat, and get the facts about what you have. You are no where near alone. 1/4 people have H. They just keep it secret. Hit me up if you have questions or just need someone to talk to.

i feel terrible. smh so terrible dont even wana put a pic of me on here..its so embarrasing i feel alone unloved..my selfesteem dropped sooo much. i cant even help it..its crazy im such a happy loving fun cheerful person..ok i get over it sumtimes and i get happy then i see normal people joking about stds or herpes and its so heartbreaking cuz sex like rules our world and when u hear a std joke or aids joke its depressing cuz u coulda prevented it. then dating is difficult feels like im never going to find the rite guy cuz all anybody cares about is sex now and days. also i hate the commercials "does not protect against hiv or stds" omg. herpes mite as well be aids they are both permanent. i dont mean to sound so down im not even a down person this disease just made me like this

I understand Crownroal. we've all been there.

Just learn the facts.. you'll learn that it's not as big a deal as you think now. When i first got it i wished that i had cancer or aids instead. Now i'm so grateful that it's just herp.

As for guys. Yes, they think with their dicks.. (generally) That is the hardest part about this for me. But (like everyone says) this will weed out the good guys from the ones who just want booty.

One of the sweetest things i've heard that someone has said was she told the guy she liked that she had H.. she stressed over it for weeks beforehand and almost just stopped talking to him so she wouldnt have to tell him. When she finally worked up the courage he said "I'm not wanting to date your vagina, i'm wanting to date you."

      Yeah whoops, I didn't see you wrote HSV-1 until later haha. I definitely see your point. 
      Just some random thoughts on the subject that I've been thinking about similar to your situation, even if they are a little different. I've been in a workplace where a girl was the herpes girl so I totally get that. Not the brand you want. Yeah it is so common. Somebody else in the room probably has it, like you said. It feels like its so unnatural and isolated when diagnosed because nobody talks about it, but its so freaking common. Maybe people are more open about HSV1, but maybe not.  Who knows if the rest of the world will catch up. It's nice to not care what the rest of the world has to say sometimes. That would be tough at 18-22 having everyone you know find out. I assume my own hometown will find out one day from someone who knows; that was one of my other biggest fears about this too, but it's fading. I guess I better start working on my comeback game so it's in the holster when I need it Have a good night, good thread Hairpees.

      Hey @Runride and welcome to the website, I hope there is some thoughts to assist in your thinking. Wow, where do live? Sounds a bit like 'Deliverance' country or something out of a David Lynch movie. I'm very sorry about that. I have three options for your consideration. They are not in order of any particular preference. 1. Ignore it. Go about your life as per normal. You are the actor on your own stage and the other players will do what they do. Do as you wish to do with your life and other people will buy into that, or they're not welcome on your journey. Herpes plays the role it always has for you. You inform partners in advance of sex. 2. Take a stand to be open about your status. Requires a bit more bravery to put yourself out there for little short term reward certainly. "Yes I have herpes like most of us do orally or genitally. What do you feel the issues surrounding this are? What ought to be different in our lives and the way we live them as a result?" 3. Move to a new environment to give yourself a better chance of living life under option 1 or even option 2 above.

      For sure, why bother if it’s pointless and costly but I get what you mean.

      I said I considered it but not that I was going to sue- I have no idea what my options are here.

      I’m definitely not saying you need to file a lawsuit, you’ll read on here most people don’t have success. I’ve mentioned it because hes not responding to you so maybe that will wake him up.
