Herpes

Recommended Posts

I just got diagnosed with genital herpes and I can seem to get out of a funk. I just feel like my dating life is over. How do you even tell someone. I'm depressed and I still have to go to the doctor to start my medication. I just want to know how to cope if anyone has advice.

Time is a best friend. How long since your first outbreak? Do you still get outbreaks frequently? Is it type 1 or 2?

Time + educating yourself about the virus is what will help you plus also putting it into perspective.  The first thing everybody assumes is that their dating life is over but there is no evidence to suggest that no one can not date because they have herpes.

Look at it from this scenario you got herpes off somebody they got herpes off somebody else and so on and so on it is a very common virus.  You're more likely to meet someone who at least has oral herpes which at least provide them with some protection from catching genital herpes but yes you do need to understand which type you have so you can better deal with it

Do you have both, or just ohsv1?

I have hsv2

Actually, I was confusing you with Monique. I'm pretty sure she has ohsv1. Not sure about ghsv2 but wasn't sure. I've got both.

She has ohsv1 but says she has ghsv1 now after reinfection. I thought you were following the reinfection thread or are you a diff cas

Just forgot. I spent most of my time arguing with my buddy, Wilson. :)
