You are not sick or diseased or poisoned. 80% of the populations had Hsv in some form or another. Many people never experience symptoms and don't even know that they have it. You are still you. You have to learn to love yourself again and believe me I know this is difficult. Take it from me. I contracted it from my ex fiancé of 7 years after he cheated on me. The betrayal hurt worse than the herpes and I blamed myself. I was depressed and suicidal. After a few months of self loathing I decided to take my life back and I started to love myself again. I workout try to keep stress levels down and eat as healthy as possible. This site saved my life. I ended up meeting the love of my life and now I believe h was the best thing to happen to me. I have experienced more happiness in the past two years than I ever have in my entire life. The symptoms have also disappeared and honestly I don't even think about it. I know it's hard at first but I promise you it gets better. Try to find a local support group in your area. That helped me immensely. Good luck it will get better. Much love Kate xoxoxo

Hi Castiel - I am new too, and feel the same way. The one thing that I keep thinking of, is that this is not a health issue. It won't kill us. I also talked to a friend who told me - if you found the love of your life and he had a cold sore, would you never kiss him EVER again? I mean - I too feel sad, overwhelmed, but what is helping me is looking for positive quotes, and not to keep letting my mind run crazy with negativity.

      Thank you Slkxx. I want to talk to someone I trust but I am so afraid if I tell my best friend she will tell her husband, which is understandable. I completely trust her to not judge me but if her husband finds out his best friend is an ex of mine and I just don't want this to get around our group of friends. I have been lucky in the fact that the guy who gave it to me has been there for me but it isn't the same. Confiding in him is just making his own struggle more difficult as he feels terrible for what happened but he did not have any bad intentions. As it turns out finding out led to answering a lot of questions he has had about other health issues he had. So in a weird way this happening may actually help him in the long run with giving him an avenue for treatment. I don't want to pile onto his issues even though he has caused mine because at the end of the day he is a good guy who had no idea what was happening. I'm so glad you were able to talk to your friend and I truly hope the suicidal thoughts become a thing of your past. I am here if you need another ear.

      Various reasons are possible, including: genetics, immune system, triggers (e.g. stress), lack of nutrition/exercise, bad luck, etc. No one person has the exact same experience.  Have you tried antivirals?
