I’ve recently been diagnosed with HSV 2 and quite frankly

I’ve recently been diagnosed with HSV 2 and quite frankly I’m not functioning well at all. I suffer from severe OCD so this is my worst nightmare. The person who gave me this has now ghosted me and living his life whilst I feel isolated and alone. Keep feeling like no one will ever love me or want to marry me now I have this and I’ll be alone forever. I’m really trying to hold it together but I just can’t see how my life isn’t gonna be awful now because of this. Any advise on how to get out of this funk will be so appreciated.

@tinkerbell98 I know it’s a huge shocker when you first get the diagnosis. But I promise you it is not the end of the world. I’ve had herpes since I was 18. And I was devastated. I felt just as you did at a tender age of 18. But stay strong, you’ll push through this. I’ve never had a man turn me down for sex because of my diagnosis. Lol. Not that I was just jumping into bed with anyone. But I educated them and told them how I managed it. It’s a pesky rash that comes and goes. My husband married me with herpes. He knew he might eventually get it. But after 22 years, he has never gotten it. And I pushed a baby out of my vagina with a herpes diagnosis. I know my body, and I am careful about it. But our sex life is just like any normal married couples. If a guy is really into you, he will look past that diagnosis. Just as mine did!

thank you so much, I really needed to hear those things, it’s nice to know that I’m not alone in this. I also opened up to my best friend about my diagnosis , a part of me thought I’d be shunned and seen as disgusting but she has wrapped me up in so much love and support, makes me feel a lot stronger moving forward! I’m so grateful for this group ❤️

@tinkerbell98 I’m glad that you have a good friend that you can talk to about this. She sounds like a wonderful person. I too had a best friend that I confided in about my diagnosis. And we used to crack jokes about it, because hell, what else can you do but laugh? It’s good for the soul. And unfortunately that sorry ex of yours is probably going to continue to infect more unsuspecting women in the future, and they will hopefully find this support group when they need someone to talk to as well. Sad but true.
