I am 22 and was diagnosed just before my 22 birthday. I had a really bad outbreak and just lost it because I felt like I immediately had this sinking feeling in the pit of my stomach that I knew what it was. My boyfriend at the time was super supportive but I got very depressed and I'm still not sure how to deal with it. Every time I meet someone new I push them away before it can go anywhere sexual because I'm scared to tell them I have this. I feel very alone.

Whyyyyy

Hey love! I'm sorry for the circumstances that have brought you here but I'm so glad you found HC! Do you know what type you have been diagnosed with?

Welcome to the group you are certainly not alone and the best thing you can do is educate yourself about the virus so that you can see that you can maintain a normal life and it does include relationships.  Secondly it is important not to assume that someone will reject you because you do not know their own status or how they feel about it but personally being so young just get on with your life and enjoying doing all the things young people supposed to do and worry about relationships later when you are ready to settle down.

      Do you shop at Amazon.com? Next time you shop, you can also automatically donate a portion of the proceeds to the Colorado Alphaherpesvirus Latency Society.  This Society organizes the symposium on latency of herpes viruses.  It was here that Keith Jerome announced that he had edited almost 20%-30% of latent HSV in mice last year. (http://www.ucdenver.edu/academics/colleges/medicalschool/departments/neurology/CALS/Documents/2018 CALS abstracts.pdf) You have to go through smile.amazon.com to set up ongoing donations whenever you shop through smile.amazon.com. ____________________________________________________________________________________________ Yes, I understand that I must always start at smile.amazon.com to support Colorado Alphaherpesvirus Latency Society. Why is there a separate URL? The AmazonSmile program offers customers a new benefit, making a donation to your favorite charity. We're able to provide this benefit to you when you choose to start your shopping at smile.amazon.com in part because we expect AmazonSmile to grow primarily through word of mouth instead of paid advertising—and this enables us to fund donations to our customers’ favorite organizations.

      WOW, it's true.  So cool!  Thanks for sharing. In my view, for the time being, we can just help support the Colorado Alphaherpesvirus Latency Society, rather than asking Fred Hutch to set something up through Amazon.   Here is an important message though, you have to go through smile.amazon.com to do the donation.
