Too little time, to waste a lot of it.

Recommended Posts

2blessed2stress

I'm not even 24 hours into this diagnosis, and all I can say is life is incredibly too short to spend the little time that we do have dwelling over this virus. At just 19 years old, I have nothing but life to live. . . some people may feel sad that I have had to contract the virus at such a young age and never even experienced a love being close to remotely real. . . but I know the man I do find and hope to find will be a great one for living and loving me with this virus. I could waste my time trying to find out which one of the people I had sex with gave me this and be mad, upset, fuss and fight but that would solve nothing. I have to live with this thing. There is nothing I can do but learn to live with, I'm deeply hurt, I'm sad. . . & I'm just hoping no one purposely infected me . . . which I don't think. . . I'm using this thing as a way to educate others, for about an hour I cried and thought why me, but then I thought why not me? I just have to use my voice . . . the more I research this virus the more I learn that there are so many people who don't know they have it, don't know that condoms aren't really such a preventative measure , all I want to do is spread the word and open other people's eyes, like I wish someone would have done for me. . . I'm sure I will cry myself to sleep tonight thats if I even get to sleep but ummmmm I will be okay. I now have to contact the people I had sex with and tell them to get tested. . . it's hard, but I have to do the right thing. I only had 5 sexual partners in my life time, I've been good friends with each of them . . . but this is one conversation you barely want to have with yourself. . . I will be okay.

Hey 2blessed, I could not have given you a better pep talk :) . This is exactly what you should do. Live!! I have lived and loved for 24 years with my h. I also have a daughter, one year younger than you. I did educate her and disclosed to her, well before she went off to college. I wanted her to know cold sores/fever blisters are h1. I wanted her to be aware that you don't have to have intercourse to get h, she's bisexual. She is now the 2nd person, besides drs, that I have disclosed to. Biggest weight lifted from my shoulders just knowing she is educated, I was not. Take care honey and keep doing what your doing. There are men out there who will see the heart. :love: hugs, Ace :)

      I’ll stop doing it then hahah yeah mine doo too they are like milk spots but these bad boys have got a lot of them in them!! I think these are the ones that was under my skin I’ll stop touching them hopefully they’ll go away I’ve never had a blister/ spot on my lips or inside my mouth so i was just been curious if it’s on my face or so, thank you for advice tho lovely

      I would suggest you don t have to tell many people about it you have HSV ..May be you can tell people with whom you are in relationship now or any future partners ..telling anyone else will make unnecessary more worrying only ...

      Stop picking them or poping them and see does it goes away on its own ? i also get some of these on my forehead with white discharge sometimes ..but my poping them it spreads to more area of skin ..
