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.

      @clarke53 without a swab that’s a hugely risky call!

      How long has this happened to you? What was swabbed? Results yet?

      Hi all  i have been to a doctor on 4 seperate occasions since I had unprotected sex with a woman who I later found out has herpes . They have said “it doesn’t look” like herpes . My penis always is red , inflamed anabolic has little red pimples on it.  I am constant uncomfort and pain in my gential areas, tingling , fatigue . None of the drs have done a blood test. I have researched DNA testing as they appear more accurate. I saw a dr this week and he took a swab. It’s always on my mind now because I have just started a relationship and don’t know if I should tell her. I’m scared she will run a mile . I haven’t told her because the dr said I was fine . I don’t know what do to do .  Any advice would be appreciated . I have a history with depression and this is adding to it

      @clarke53 why do you think you do not have an asymptomatic genital infection. The mouth sores don’t seem to be herpetic.  What protection do you use genitally?
