My friends moms computer has a ton of ads on it and I happen to glance and see this and I haven’t laughed so hard in a long time

Oh man it’s hilarious how herpes is so heavily stigmatized that many people living with a perfectly harmless and ridiculously common STI feel the need to only date other people who have it to avoid judgment and harassment hahhahahahhaha

Hey herpblr!

I’m almost through my week-long antiviral meds for my first genital HSV-1 outbreak, but I’m not seeing much improvement. I know various internet sources say that initial outbreaks can last for three weeks or more, but it’d be really helpful to hear first-hand experiences. I have to…

Definitely get lidocaine!!! You’ll probably have to apply it a couple times a day, but it helps so so so much. I started taking the antivirals around a week after it started and I’m pretty sure it cleared up in about a week maybe week and a half after that. I took a lot of baths too. Sitting in a warm, kinda on the colder side, bath helps sooth everything.

My heart hurts so bad I don’t know what to do with myself.

I’m feeling sore again.

I took valacyclovir today. 

I really can’t go through this again. I’m just starting to want to be in a new relationship, open myself up to a new person, and her comes HSV to fucking knock me right back down. I don’t see any sores, it does’t burn when I pee, so I’m assuming these are good signs. I just hope the valacyclovir actually works because I keep it in my car so that no one will find it, but it’s summer and it get’s pretty hot in there. 

I just wanna be a normal 19 year old. I don’t wanna have this burden.

If you don’t like feeling all cakey when wearing makeup, try using powders instead of creams.

imreallybad:

repeat after me: 

  • virginity is a social construct 
  • you don’t lose your virginity 
  • there’s nothing valuable or precious about virginity, it’s an imaginary concept 
  • virginity is inherently heterocentric 
  • your worth is not defined by whether or not you’ve had a dick inside you
  • what you define as sex is up to you, you get to decide how many people you’ve had sex with 
  • the end

I find my life really ironic.

A few months before I got diagnosed with GHSV1, my roommate, house mates, and I were taking about sex and what not. Herpes got mentioned, and everyone said that if they were to contract herpes that they rather contract it orally. Except for me, I said I rather contract it genitally because no one would be able to see if/when I had an outbreak. 

Well, at least I got my preference.

Some days I’m like: Fuck yeah, I’m hot, I’m gonna go and get some hot guy to be with. I’m so ready for a new relationship. 

And other days I’m just: I don’t even wanna be with another person again. I’m gonna be alone forever. I wanna be alone forever. Who’s gonna love me anyway.
