I’m 17 years old and found out that I might have herpes . In a few days I’ll find out what type . I haven’t stopped crying since the news . I tried telling the guy that he gave it to me and he denied it and laughed at me . I feel disgusted in myself for even being with him . I feel like my life is over because of this . All I can think about is how embarrassing this is to have to explain to anyone that wants to be with me . I feel like I’ll never be able to have a family or be in a happy relationship . Right after I got the news all I could think about is how I wanted to kill myself . I feel very alone and lost in my life . I know that sounds extreme .

Hello,
I was in the same place as you...looking back I can't believe suicide ever crossed my mind...Trust me you will be in a better place a week from now. As an illness goes, this is a big nothing, and 50 million people have HSV-2, with 80% of the population infected with HSV-1. you are not alone and there are many, many men of all types who are in your position. most people who have it don't even know it. Just get by day by day and every day will be better. Everything you want...family, marriage...will still be available to you.
