I Believe I Have Herpes

by CH

I just married my soul mate in June. We have been together for two and a half years. He is good and kind, and has raised my son as his own...

Three days ago, I started to feel "flu-like symptoms". I took a bath, and found a bump on the genital area. I thought little about it, thought it was an ingrown hair or that I’ve hurt myself through shaving. The next day, that area was sensitive to the touch, and by the afternoon, the bump was releasing yellowish fluid. I am pretty sure that it is herpes.

My husband believed he had boils, however, I was concerned. I was tested negative before I had my son, and have been with no one else besides my husband... I love my husband with all of my heart, and I believe he gave this to me. We have talked about it, and he cried. He did not even think it could be herpes.

I get tested tomorrow; however, it seems pretty clear to me that I am positive. I truly believe that everything happens for a reason and no matter what happens... I will never give up on my true love, my life's partner, or my best friend because of a virus... I told my husband through our tears last night, that if I get to give up heartache and pain, along with loneliness to spend my life with him- and I get a treatable virus, then we are the lucky ones.
