shock....

Recommended Posts

ash119

So I was just diagnosed today, but I figured for the past couple of days that I had herpes. I honestly never thought it emotionally would take the toll that it did. I feel like a failure, like i made bad decisions and that everyone is going to view me in a different light. I am ashamed and I never ever thought this was going to happen to me. Its like one of those things you hear other people experience but when it actually happens to you it's just like complete shock. I was wondering how all of you guys are coping or if any of you can relate to what im saying?

Hi Ash, I can definately relate to what you're saying. I was diagnosed on 31st Oct and it was devastating. BUT....I am feeling better over the last week. Kind of coming to terms with everything. I felt so dirty at first....like I was being punished...but I think this is all normal for most people. You will have a few dark days...then some good and bad...but you won't feel this dreadful forever. Take one day at at time....I'm still doing this.

It will get easier and there are lots of nice people here who can tell you all you need to know.

Take care.

Yeah thats exactly how I feel. Like I did something wrong and I'm being punished for it. And then I start to think did I do something to deserve this. I know this isn't going to be something that I'll be completely fine with tomorrow, but I hope I can cope with it better soon.

Thanks so much, it definitely makes me feel less alone in the situation
