Well, I am new to this community since I am a few months diagnosed. This is the first time I have broken my silence to talk about it besides to my ex, who gave it to me. It is completely out of my character since I am very outspoken and talk about diseases all the time in my line of work. I guess I just need someone who wont judge or jump to conclusions. Someone who can tell me it will be okay since this is a life changing thing. Now where I see myself in 5 years has changed....

Hey H-town. Im in San Antonio...I found out Friday. I just told my mom like an hour ago. Shes my best friend and I felt horrible keeping this from her. Right now im having my first outbreak so needless to say I want to die.

It will be okay...a lot of people have it...they just dont say it. If you want to talk to me, I would love to talk. I could go visit one day too...my cousin goes to college over there so I can crash in her dorm. lol

hey Brknrd,

Listen, I was feeling the same way almost 3 years ago when i found out i had GHSV 1 . i got it from my current boyfriend, he has coldsores...he didnt cheaat or anything and i still thought why me, why cant i deal. It has taken a few years for me to even start accepting this skin condition..because thats what it is.... but with THERAPY, lots of it, support from my boyfriend and best friend, as well as this support group online, it has helped me majorly.. this site is going to help you like online therapy..

i used to think my life was over in a few years..but im still in school, still finding jobs, still have the boyfriend and a TRUE bestfriend i can rely on.. sooo nothing changes unless you make it change...

your thoughts are yours and you have the power to change them.... and do what you want with them.. so in 5 years i see you being so successful not even worrying about this stuff... any out breaks will slow down in time, and you will learn what triggers the outbreaks....and you can start to manage your life with it...its hard, not easy at first, takes a while but youl get there...

anytime you need to talk i am here! you can always reply here or private message me :)

Brknred, it will be ok. It is just something that you will discuss with a potential partner in tge future. And "the talk " will not affect your relationship with a good and worthwhile person. if someone has a prblem with it, then stay friends but dont pursue a romance. you will be stronger and more confident over time, knowing what you want, who you want to be with, and who deserves your time. be well, hun. Life is good. Sometimes unfair, but still good.

Brknred I don't recall if we talked while in chat at some point. I'm 23, female, and live in Dallas Texas. I got my herpes from my ex fiancee. He knew he had it, and never bothered to tell me. He also refused to wear condoms. We were together for about three years, and somewhere in those three years I acquired herpes from him. Sometimes its the people you trust the most that hurt you or screw you over the most.

ANyways, buck up, keep your head up, and remember, no matter what happens, you'll always be able to find friends and answers here. I promise it does get better (I know you are prolly sick of hearing that.) Took me about three weeks to let go of the anger and accept it. But I promise you, it got better for me.

      Just read how Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez helped raise $340,000 for transgender youth. https://www.yahoo.com/lifestyle/alexandria-ocasio-cortez-casually-joins-171241889.html It sure would help if we had some celebrity or public person champion our cause. Maybe that should be our focus, to reach out to public persons and try to enlist them.  All it takes is a tweet from the right person.

      Dr. Iwasaki is definitely deserving of funding. I'd love it if we could do a fund raiser for her. I guess at the moment we are already doing the Fred Hutch Center.

      Thank you for all this info. This is very encouraging.

      Hi, I’ve had HSV1g for 4 years and only ever had my first and only breakout. I’m super thankful for that. I still hate disclosing as it sets off alarms. Finally met a guy I really really like and disclosed last night to be clear about why I’ve been hesitant to be intimate.  We have for sure kissed and after telling he was in a panick about us having kissed. I’ve never ever had cold sores and have never passed it to anyone. Again in 4 years only my first and only genital HsV1 breakout. I’ve always been told kissing for me was fine....Can anyone help clarify? I’m resllt struggling as I like this guy a lot and hoping he can look past it.
