Dealing With Herpes Through God

I am 19 years old and this Friday I will be going to the doctor to be tested for the herpes virus. Two weeks ago I discovered a small but painful bump on my butt, immediately I went on the internet and researched. I have since then been extremely stressed with the situation and haven't had the slightest clue what to do. I've been afraid and alone.

Until a week ago, I got up the courage and explained to both my boyfriend and parents why I felt so distraught. Both parties were as understanding as they could be and encouraged me that everything would be okay.

Would everything be okay? Today I discovered this website and although I haven't had the slightest clue as to whether I have the virus or not, I felt a sense of comfort that I haven't felt in two weeks. I have prayed to God today, as I do every day, and didn't ask for the first thing. I didn't ask him to cure me of this 'could be' disease, I thanked him. I thanked him for teaching me a life lesson. Something that will not kill me but will show me that what I've been doing shouldn't go on.

I know that since this happened, I will be a changed woman. I will protect myself (as I should) and never be the one to judge like I have in the past. This could happen to anyone.

Friday is a big day for me but with the support of my loving family and boyfriend and this amazing website, I know I've got this! God's got my back no matter the results. Finding this page sure has been a blessing, I will fall asleep with a smile on my face tonight because I deserve to!
