Hello, folks. My experience with HSV started 2 years ago, but I don’t let something I have dealt with for a while control my life. Glad I’m not only one. I have say, it’s not easy telling my secret, but I have had enough of fake smiles to my face and talk behind my back.
Herpes has such a stupid stigma. People are afraid of the word, but won’t bother to educate themselves. Well, this is the place where you can get some education. I don’t want people judging me or my friends, because you might be in same boat and need someone to give you support.
I just want say that it’s okay to ask questions – no need to be scared. Also, HSV-1 (cold sores/fever blisters) is herpes, too, so don’t be in denial accept and it; a sensitive matter for some, but it’s okay, so be a braveheart: only ignorant people think negatively about something could happen to any one.
I didn’t sleep around: one female with whom I was in relationship. Maybe she didn’t know, but I can’t change the past. Love yourself and live your life!
