Looking to talk about HV2. I have never participated in an online form b4.

Hello everyone,

I have been living in silence about this infection for about 4 years. The stigma around it has made it impossible to share this diagnosis with even my closest friends. Two years ago I was able to begin a relationship with a person who does not have HV2 and was able to share the diagnoses with him. Although he is supportive, I have never had the opportunity to have a meaningful, open conversation with others going through the same thing. I am not tech savvy and have never participated in an online form before and don't really know how to use it. I was so excited when I found this site because for the first time in a long time, i feel a sense of hope. I have many questions and feelings inside regarding this virus and don't even know where to start. Most of all, I am excited to hear other people's stories.

Hi Small Town Lady!

I am very glad you found this site! You will find many resources, articles, and personal stories that you can associate with. I felt very welcomed here and there are lots of folks in the chat room that will cheer you up when you are feeling down. I love going to the chat room in the mornings with my cup of coffee and having a few laughs to start my day!

Try to stay positive and always ask questions!! We are all here for a reason, and I'm so happy that I found this site as well!

Take Care

Let me welcome you to the forums! I have been living with HSV2 for four to five years now, but I got diagnosed with it through a blood test middle of Aug. I am a lurker in the chat room almost perpetually, and I promise I don't bite... unless you want me to. Anyways, I don't know if you want me to post my whole story here for the world to see, but I can if you want me to. Its an interesting story to say the least, and I find myself often in a very strange place regarding my relationship with GHSV2.

PM or catch me in chat if you'd like to chat.

Even though I have had this virus for so long, I am only now beginning to realize what it means to me and trying to process this. i defiantly have a lot to learn and hope I gain as much from this site as you guys have. I have never used a chat room before so this might be interesting lol
