Nervous following Disclosure

Recommended Posts


Hey, I've been seeing a guy for a couple weeks and he's so great. I always struggle with when to disclose about HSV2 but I went ahead and got it over with two nights ago.  He was really nice about it at the time and said no one had ever told him that before and he wasn't sure how to react but it didn't change me as a person. I reached out to him yesterday and he said he was stressed with work.  Not sure if I added to his stress. Haven't heard from him today.  Just curious if it's best to disclose and then give the person space?  Is it normal for someone to pull back? I don't want to hover but my stomach is killing me and i'm really anxious about it.  Any advice is appreciated. Thanks

Sorry to say he has definitely pulled back to think. There is little to do but wait. He has to come to you if this has any chance of working well for the two of you.

Put a date in your head that marks a point where you’re moving on. I think another two weeks is plenty.

Figured that might be the case. I guess I'll just wait and let him make a move. I don't want to be with someone who's scared to sleep with me or make me feel bad about myself b/c I've already done that long enough.

      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.
