Thank you to everyone who replied to my last post. Still kinda freaked but I just need to stop thinking into it.
Also I’m sorry I haven’t been on. Classes started and all my friends are back. I’ll go on my laptop tonight and answer everything and give an update on my life.
Thanks for being so great everyone
Oh my god…
I’m in my aunts apartment getting ready cause my house is being renovated and I found a bottle of L-Lysine supplements. My aunt have fucking herpes… MY AUNT HAS HSV. My aunt who didn’t get married or have kids and lives alone has herpes… I can’t end up like this. Is this the fate of someone with HSV? It’s been in front of me this whole time. No. NO. I can’t end up alone.
I try to stay positive, I really do, but that video has brought me to a really shitty place. Just cause that seems to be the reality of what people without herpes think of herpes.
Back to the thoughts of never finding love. Wishing I had N again. Wishing I didn’t have herpes. Hoping the guy 4,000 miles away will still accept me after I tell him I have HSV. Worrying if I’ll get another outbreak. Hoping that I won’t. Scared cause I’m out of antiviral. Scared that my parents will find out. Worried that my friends will find out. Just all these bad thoughts I thought I was done with months ago.
I guess I haven’t really accepted my HSV.
"Hear about the dangerous virus this high school wrestler caught on the mats…"
Are you fucking kidding me. DANGEROUS VIRUS? This is such fucking bullshit and this is what the media is feeding people to continue the stigma. I literally feel sick right now.
80% of Americans have oral herpes (commonly known as but not exclusive to Herpes Simplex Virus 1, HSV1). About 20% of Americans have genital herpes (commonly known as but not exclusive to Herpes Simplex Virus 2, HSV2). Genital HSV1 infection are also on the rise; about 50% of all new cases are GHSV1.
To say what is said in this video is to say that anything will prevent you from living your life. Like a cold, or diabetes, or asthma, or A COLD SORE (herpes…).
Please don’t believe this crap. Herpes is nothing. It’s not the scary pictures on google or the rumors your health Ed teacher feeds you. It doesn’t even look as bad as eczema can. Do your own research and get the real facts.
