Finding it hard to accept this

Recommended Posts


Hi all,

i am new to this and I was diagnosed in June 2017. I got this from my current boyfriend who did not know he had this. I believe he had a small symptom such as a spot but just ignored it and thought it was something else. I still can’t get my head around this and I have my good days but the past few days it’s been eating at me. I just feel like I am not the same anymore. My beauty has been taken from me. I am a over thinker and a worrier and I think what if we don’t work out? I am happy at the moment but I feel like this situation stops me from loving him to my full potential and I try to look past it and then it pops back in my brain.I haven’t spoken to anyone about this and would be grateful for some advise :(

If you don’t work out you will find someone else. You still have your beauty and you will be okay. It’s rough but according to everyone here it tapers off after a while.

      Hello, thank you for your generous donation. I donated on Monday after finding the amazing work that has been done. I got a lot of answers from this forum and I hope more people get involved.  Donation send a great message of the interest that we have for a cure. Thank you and I really believe the cure is in the next couple of years.

      I’m bringing us to 20k; I really believe in the research the Jerome lab is doing and want it to cure everyone.

      I think people are discouraged by past failures but remember in failure, new things are learned and the progress on understanding hsv is increasing. Up until Jerome’s lab devised a way to attack the latent virus in 2012 there was never a way to potentially cure it; now there is. Couple in the advancements in technology and I think there’s more hope now than ever that it can be cured in the near future.

      That's actually a comforting statistic

      Because it is still a non curable threat in community. Whether it's a small group of people who experience the most severe symptoms, they're still people, just like you. Hsv prevalence will only grow due to lack of effectiveness of treatment and eventual resistance of virus. The virus will infect more and more people and this virus will and may affect your quality of life and in some rare cases it may lead to severe complications and blindness, meningitis etc. Last time I checked by 2025, US will have half of its population infected genital herpes. Do you think WOH and health community will like that?
