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.

      Just read how Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez helped raise $340,000 for transgender youth. https://www.yahoo.com/lifestyle/alexandria-ocasio-cortez-casually-joins-171241889.html It sure would help if we had some celebrity or public person champion our cause. Maybe that should be our focus, to reach out to public persons and try to enlist them.  All it takes is a tweet from the right person.

      Dr. Iwasaki is definitely deserving of funding. I'd love it if we could do a fund raiser for her. I guess at the moment we are already doing the Fred Hutch Center.

      Hi, I’ve had HSV1g for 4 years and only ever had my first and only breakout. I’m super thankful for that. I still hate disclosing as it sets off alarms. Finally met a guy I really really like and disclosed last night to be clear about why I’ve been hesitant to be intimate.  We have for sure kissed and after telling he was in a panick about us having kissed. I’ve never ever had cold sores and have never passed it to anyone. Again in 4 years only my first and only genital HsV1 breakout. I’ve always been told kissing for me was fine....Can anyone help clarify? I’m resllt struggling as I like this guy a lot and hoping he can look past it.
