Feeling Hopeless and Scared
I am a 23 yr old girl who just found out to be positive with Genital Herpes. Right now I can't stop crying or feeling like my life is over. My outbreak was mild, just slight burning sensation, and the sores themselves were not uncomfortable or itchy.
My Dr. says I have HSV-1, which I probably got from my boyfriend who has cold sores. I have told my partner and his attitude is one of annoyance, as he put it now he has to be with me forever, whether he wants to or not. We have been together for almost eight years, and last night he didn't even want to cuddle from fear of my contagiousness.
He is going to get tested, and hopefully he doesn't have it. I am just feeling the lowest I have in my life and am having very dark morose thoughts. I really want to change this and be more positive and take charge of my health, but my thoughts wont let me.
Any words of support or advice would be forever treasured. Thank you.
