Talk About Herpes | Just Diagnosed with Genital Herpes

I just found out I had genital herpes 2 weeks ago. All I want to do is hide in the corner and cry as the world passes me by. I usually have an optimistic view on challenges but this one seems to be so overwhelming. I was in love in a 4+ year relationship and got my heartbroken. The next few months I became more permiscuous, having a few new partners, trying to subdue the pain, and this is where I`m ending up, feeling more alone than ever. My greatest fear. I`m so embarrassed and ashamed. Never thought it would happen to me, I thought I could just take some pills and it would disappear. But no, this is forever now. I believe I contracted it from someone who didn`t know. He was alot older so I trusted him more easily than I should have. I had a bad feeling, like I almost knew. It has already been a very physically painful experience. Probably the most pain I`ve ever felt in my life. From fever to body ache to sharp pain, itchy open soars. The virus is already a huge issue in itself, but the social stigma associated with it is going to be a battle in itself. I am just trying to be patient, and take this as a humbling life perspective changing experience. I hope/pray those I encounter will be understanding. I just wanted to thank all of you who posted your experience as well, it has helped tremendously reading your stories and learning as well. [46753]
