Diagnosed today, wanting to know if i'm the only one who has been through not only herpes but other problems as well.

So I am a 21 year old that has had no serious illnesses, no injuries, no anything. I have been with a total of 6 sexual partners and I am currently in a steady relationship with my last partner.


Today, I have been diagnosed with type-1 herpes and am trying to stay positive. But along with discovering this, a week ago I was also diagnosed with chlamydia, had a yeast infection, a bacterial infection and for caution was told I had a UTI (which today I found out I tested negative). The pain was unbearable; I had actually just thought I had ripped the vagina area because of the lesion thinking nothing of it.

So I didn't go to see a doctor until I started getting bumps. I was embarrassed, mortified and felt like when the doctor was going over what seemed like a long list of what I have, she was looking at me with sympathy. Made me feel even worse about my situation. Finding out you have one thing wrong with you is bad enough but having this all happen to you within the same week is to me, life-changing.

My boyfriend was also tested and is positive for both. Neither one of us has shown any symptoms until mine which happened a week and a half ago. As everyone with this disease knows you can have a blood test done to determine the length of exposure, well I declined that test.

I feel as though either one of us could have gotten it and never had known. No one should be blamed. We are extremely happy and still loving each other and plan to stay by each other’s side no matter how bad the situation. I'm so thankful that I'm actually with the man that I discovered this with.

But like some I have the feeling of being "dirty" and feeling like this disease is going to wear me down and make me feel like it's going to take over my life. I am a college student with a bright future and I am probably the cleanest person my friends know.

Knowing if people were to find out & would think less of me is what scares me. Of course I would never tell a soul but it's sad that there is this stigma with this disease. I never went around asking for this nor did I sleep with anyone I did not know. Guess you see a whole new side of things when it affects you personally. Looking towards the future I'm going to take it one step at a time, knowing I will have my moments of weakness.

So I hope there are others out there that feel the same way and hopefully this will help others know that it could be worse. Be thankful this is not life threatening.

I am 100% at your back for this road safety forum you are having.assignment help australia
It's a great way of instilling to the people the value of safety when on the road and thus, preventing any accidents from happening. In our country, the rate of minor road accidents seems to rise so this forum would be helpful especially if attended by people mainly using the road for transportation.online assignment help
