My Herpes Story

Hi, my name is Gary. I'm a real person with Genital Herpes (for 18 years!) and Oral Herpes (HSV-1).

I'm not alone. According to the CDC, one in six adults in the U.S has Genital Herpes. That's over 45 million adults!!!

Tired of being depressed and lonely with Herpes, I began learning everything I could about the causes of the herpes virus. I learned that Herpes (especially Genital Herpes) is not such a big deal as we make it out to be. I got super healthy (just two outbreaks in the last two years).

And I began dating, having wonderful relationships, and even having great sex after (I even told them I had herpes).

Along the way, I learned lots of tips, secrets, guidelines, and simple practices that will help you through this difficult time in your life so you can live healthily AND love other people again.

Healing Your Herpes...

You can heal from Herpes.

Doctors can't help you with the emotional trauma of getting herpes.

But, the good news is, like your herpes outbreaks, those things will pass. You will begin healing. Your body will heal. Your emotions will heal. And your spirit will grow and learn from this experience.

So take a deep breath. And realize taking little steps every day will help you recover and heal from this experience. And I promise, you will find happiness again.

To Your Love and Happiness,
