im so upset

Recommended Posts

betterdayz12

I was just diagnosed three day a ago. I can't explain how much I have cried these last few days. I never thought this would happen to me and I'm scared. I've only had four partners including my boYfriend now. I'm scared that he doesn't want to be with me anymore because of my diagnosis. He's going to be tested but I've been a ball of nerves for the past week. Any advice On how to feel better?

Hi betterdayz! It WILL get better. What helped me the most was talking to people here, especially in the chat, and reading the success stories in the forums. I also really liked the book "Live, Love, & Thrive with Herpes." Get educated on herpes (but try to stick to resources made for/by people with herpes, like the ones on this site), and try to be compassionate towards yourself. You're still just as wonderful as you were before the diagnosis. Once your ob goes away, you'll start to feel more normal. You'll find that having herpes is not as bad as the stigma makes it out to be.
