I’m so angry

Recommended Posts


I’ve just signed up here as I have NOONE in the real world to talk to. I feel so disgusting. My child’s father has given me herpes and I don’t know what to do with myself. I feel so icolated. I’ve no friends my only friend was my partner and now we don’t work anymore. I don’t know what I’m supposed to do. Or how I’m supposed to cope. I’m lonely. Really lonely  and I’m so so so fed up I feel damaged. I don’t know if this is an emotional outburst or what. I just need someone to talk to

Hey there a great community here to help you.

This is a lot more common than you’d have ever thought.

But what herpes do you have and what location.

Hey @WilsoInAus I have HSV2. Gentail. I feel so dirty. I was itchy after sex and noticed a small cut. Went to the clinic and came back positive for HSV2. I don’t think I would mind so much if I had caught this sleeping around but I have caught this from my child’s father and now I feel as though I could never be intimate with anyone again as I feel so dirty and I know people will look down on me for this

Hey....What you're feeling is normal. I was just recently diagnosed; you feel dirty, depressed and isolated, I understand. Is there just one person you can disclose this to? Just one person can help tremendously. I have two friends I can talk to about this, and my boyfriend (who gave this to me, not his fault, was not aware), and even having them, you still feel overwhelmed with shame and sadness. I am here for you if you need to talk. It is a very difficult thing to go through. Try to be kind to yourself, do whatever you need to do to make yourself feel calm for short periods of time (funny movie, relaxing bath, music, walks...). I feel like once some time has passed, I will be coping with this disease a lot better, and I feel it will be the same for you as well. Time can't heal us physically, but it can help us emotionally. Take care hun, you are not alone :blush:

      This is my second outbreak in more than four years apart from the first. Or at least that the symptoms are noticeable enough. The first time I was prescribed acyclovir but this time I was prescribed valacyclovir (generic for valtrex). I'm on my third pill and just developed a mild reddish rash not itchy in my forearms. Has anyone experienced something like this?

      Hi guys I am worried if I got herpes. I have gone to the doctor and they have all said I am fine, I recently had Oral sex from a girl I met. I had it done two times. The first time I was fine and the next time, I felt pain in my urine.  Uti tests and stds tests expect for Herpes was done and I was good. The pain went away but I have these red sores and I am confused if they are anything? The doctor said they are normal but I just want some feedback. Thank you guys please comment.  My pictures are there

      Update: I plan on getting tested in mid November, so about a month from now, it’s been 6 months since lip breakout and after taking olive leaf extract recently, I think I finally have the anal itch under control, it’s virtually non existent so I’m hoping for improvement over the next month, I’ll keep y’all posted

      I think someone else posted about this. I read the same article, it's exciting news lets hope it succeeds.

      My testicles itch badly too , I usually take a cool bath with epsom salts to stop the itch . I have had the itching off and on for years. Your not alone.

      I have to agree. I'm actually...fine? I freaked out at my first OB last month, but then after reading all the information out there, and starting taking care of myself, I don't think about it most days. There is the occasional anxiety and I haven't worked up the courage to tell people except my bf, but I read a lot about people talking like its the end of the world (which makes me think "Should I be worrying more?"). Of course, everyone's feelings are valid, but, personally, I wish I had someone to talk to about this that isn't completely distraught.
