Keep yout head up


Recommended Posts

I know it sucks to find out something like having herpes. But you are the same person that you were before you found out. Always stay true to yourself and never let anyone tell you that you are anything less that amazing. Remember keep your head up high and walk with your back straight. You are only as strong as you want to be. STAY STRONG ALWAYS!

Thank you for your post! It is so difficult to find people who remain positive once being diagnosed. I figure, I'm not dying so this isn't that bad. It just is hard that we can't talk much about it for fear of people thinking we're "dirty". I understand STD's are preventive, but really it happens. I have no one to blame, but myself. It's apparent that I got it from someone, but I still made my decisions, I could have protected myself better (abstinence is the only fool proof way). I think it's time we take personal accountability and embrace the opportunity of personal growth and enrichment through our diagnosis. Thank you for your post! Infinite Love & Gratitude.

      I don't agree with this sentiment. There are over 1 billion women in the planet that have passed HSV-1 orally to one or more of their children. That does not mean they have done anything wrong or lacked 'great effort'. There is absolutely no reason for a mother with oral HSV-1 to behave any differently to a mother without HSV-1. Provided active cold sores are kept away from everyone, there is no reason why all mothers cannot show their chosen manner of affection to their children. It is only stigma-generated fear that leads to a few mothers thinking differently and operating from a place of fear instead of love. Hopefully we can reach those women and assure them they do not need to behave differently on account of HSV.

      @dont quit!, Great effort by you to not pass it to your daughter. Fortunately, kissing is not the only way to show affection. I am sure you are already channelling through other means 🙂

      That is good to hear! I have my appointment this evening, so hopefully they agree it is something else. It has not changed in appearance since Friday when I originally posted also.

      Thanks Wilson. Really appreciate the answer and contribution to this community! I guess I will sweat bullets for 12 weeks to get a better answer.

      Thanks for the input, I definitely did not know that prior to getting it I did want to input that I still only have the labia swelling but it hasn't progressed any further.
