I'm really just looking for someone to talk to. I got diagnosed in February and things really haven't been the same. Its hard to relate to people when they just don't understand.

how have things changed for you so far? I am just trying to get adjusted myself. I am 21/m/ny but have a place in florida too. I go back and forth between being okay and not okay but I have only told my mom (who is one of my best friends we have been through a lot) and my best friend throughout my whole life. I can't tell any of my college friends and its hard to be around them sometimes with the jokes and the carefree lifestyle they all have when I have this on my plate

Hi Beautiful disaster.

I'm also 24/f/fl. I was diagnosed today. I've done alot of crying. I'm married, mother of two. A 4year old daughter, and a almost 14month old son. I'm going through all sorts of emotions ranging from depression, and anxiety, to confusion and worry. I'm scared to touch my kids, to change my son's diaper. Like, what if I don't wash my hands wll enough and I spread it to my son. I'm so stressed out with this its making my face break out, which makes me stress even more wondering if my breakout is actually a BREAKOUT! I was so worried about what Hubs would say but, he's actually really understanding and is taking this much much better than what I thought.. Though he probably has it too at this point. I noticed the ob the day after intercourse with him.

      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.

      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.
