Hi everyone, I just got diagnosed with genital&oral HSV1 a f

Hi everyone, I just got diagnosed with genital&oral HSV1 a few days ago. I'm still trying to come to terms with it all. I got it from an ex-boyfriend who I slept with once while my immune system was down with mono. He claims he didn't sleep with anyone else, just received oral sex from another female and that was how it happened. He still refuses to admit that he's the one who gave it to me but he's the only one it could possibly be! I am still accepting everything. I just truly don't know how anyone will ever be interested in me ever again. Who would want someone who has a chance of giving them an STI? I don't really know how to begin my mental healing process with this. Does anyone have any advice? Also, is anyone taking valtrex daily in order to suppress outbreaks/limit transmission? Please let me know as it is something I am looking into.

MY DONOR GAVE ME THE SAME BULL CRAP STORY....THAT HE GOT IT FROM SOME CHICK HE LET GIVE HIM ORAL.......BUT I'M SURE HE HAD MANY MOUTHS ON HIM BY THE POINT HE BLESSED ME WITH THE VIRUS. THERE IS REALLY NO TELLING WHO MAY HAVE GIVEN IT TO HIM. LIFE DOES GO ON.....SLOWLY AT FIRST...BUT IT DOES. MY DONOR HAD THE NERVE TO TRY TO PIN IT ON ME AND THEN SPREAD LIES AND SAY I GAVE IT TO HIM.......HOWEVER, PEOPLE WERE SAYING THAT HE HAD IT BACK IN HIGH SCHOOL...( I MET HIM A YEAR AFTER WE ALL GRADUATED HIGH SCHOOL/ WE WENT TO SEPERATE SCHOOLS *EYE ROLL*) ANYWHO. JERKS WILL BE JERKS, BUT DON'T LET THESE MEN STEAL YOUR JOY OR YOUR HAPPINESS AND PURENESS! IF YOU WERE A GOOD PERSON BEFORE YOU CAN BE A GOOD PERSON AFTER THE DIAGNOSIS ALSO! THIS DOES NOT DEFINE YOU AS A PERSON OR YOUR CHARACTER. IF YOU EVER NEED GUIDANCE, ADVICE OR AN EAR, YOU CAN FOLLOW MY FACEBOOK PAGE "THE JOURNEY TO HERPEACE" I VLOG/BLOGG ABOUT HAVING THE VIRUS AND POST VIDEOS PERIODICALLY ABOUT HOW TO COPE!!! <3

At the time I got hsv, I hadn’t had any type of sex and the only man I was seeing got tested and came up clean. I think that being able to pinpoint who gave it to you and place blame probably feels pretty good, but it in the long term, it won’t help you out. I took medicine for that first outbreak because it was miserable, but since then I haven’t. I’ve had it over 3 years and I’ve found only times of extreme stress cause it to flair up, but it doesn’t seem as bad each time. Physically things definitely get better.
