I absolutely agree that people are uneducated. I was...until I was diagnosed. Reading and learning is what has really helped me through some rough days. Maybe that's why I get fearful of telling people cuz I know that my prior knowledge of herpes was based on the scary pictures they showed in sex ed. Hard to blame people for the stigma ...why become knowledgeable unless you have to right?! Guess that's a common thought.

I think most folks are typically 'uneducated' about a disease or condition until it hits close to home.... or in our cases, hits them in the FACE OR GENITALS!! LOL

I'm just trying to educate myself and use all the resources available to me thru this site. That way, I am armed to the teeth and prepared for the 'uneducated' to say something rude, snyde, or inappropriate to or about me. Kill them with kindness first, and then barrell them over with facts, studies, cultural stigma blasts, acceptance, and love!!!!! :flowers:
