I've been depressed since I found out in October. Funny thing is ive had this for about 8 years and had multiple misdiagnosises. You'd think since iv Had it for so long I'd get over it and my husband is accepting but I can't seem to accept it myself. I also have a daughter and it's trigger OCD about not spreading it to her. I just wish I could go back in time :(

I had my first outbreak 2 years ago, but had negative test results. Only last week I had my third series of herpes tests and finally got a positive result. 

Despite the initial negative test result, the doctor was pretty certain it was herpes. I was devastated. I'd always been careful, only had 4 partners in my life, people I trusted. I felt dirty, worthless, like my life was over. The depression went on for weeks. My boyfriend would look at me sometimes and just ask me what was wrong, but I couldn't put into words how dirty I felt. I tried many times, explained that I felt like he'd never want to touch me again and blaming myself when I honestly had no idea how the infection occurred (still don't, really).

He was with me then, and he is with me now. You may not have someone right now, but you're not worthless or dirty. Anybody can get herpes, and thankfully, it can be managed. I don't exactly go announcing it to the world, nor would I enjoy having to explain it to someone new, but life goes on.

It's really helpful if you have at least 1 or 2 friends you can trust with that information. They can help build you back up and remind you that you're still you.

If you have the right attitude towards it you will be fine.

      That's exactly right, you can return to your life and get the blood test as a sleep easy in 12 weeks time (from the last episode).

      Him and his ex have regular breakouts with all the traditional symptoms and I believe he was swabbed.  So I can return to life as it was before all of this drama ? I may still look into a blood test is I am confident it is accurate

      @Laurenhelena how is this guy sure he has herpes? All sounding a bit odd to me. Yes it is very unlikely you will develop lesions now. Rubbing skin to skin is required for any feasible transmission chance. The odds of transmission with unprotected vaginal sex are of the order of 0.08% per epsiode. Halve this if a condom is worn. Compare that to chamydia that has about a 33% chance of transmission with unprotected sex; now that's contagious!

      I just feel that it’s known as such a contagious STD - I’ve been lying to my family cause when I tried to talk about it they became very anxious and begged me to tell them I hadn’t slept with him when I had - If someone told me that they slept with someone with genital herpes my mind would instantly think they had it.  So it’s unlikely then that I’m going to get symptoms now? I’m not going anything further with that guy but we have cuddled and kissed in bed with underwear on, is that ok?  Im quite sure he has hsv2 given that his ex gave it to him through a threesome  I’ve never had a cold sore
