I um...I don't really know what to say right now.....i went to see my gyno on Monday for what I thought was a tear...he took a few cultures and sent me for blood work because he thinks its herpes.....its not confirmed until next week when I go for my follow up....I know I just have to accept the results but its scary. My significant other says its not a problem to him as long as I don't let it kill my self esteem but how could it not? How can I not feel..less than normal if I am infected? How can I not feel...ugly? I've been trying to keep it out of mind until its confirmed so I'm not constantly upset about it..

YOU and the outbreak are not one in the same. Sure, the outbreak might feel ugly, but that's not you. It's a symptom of a non-dangerous thing (that you may or may not have).
