I'm 15 with GH & I'm Trying To Live with It Without the One Person I WANT

by Sam

Hi, I’m 15 and I am a girl. I found out I had herpes three months ago... & when I found out I was a wreck so upset wanted to die & everything, the boy that gave them to me was with me through my first year of high school I’m actually in love with him still because he was amazing!

Until I found out he didn't only spend the herpes to me, but some more girls too. His girlfriend gave them to him which pissed me off because they don’t even know each other. I’m not just mad there together, but I’m pissed that he's happy being together with her and giving this to me.

I didn’t even want to go to school this year. I was so scared, I feel like everyone talks behind my back or when I come in they all secretly know. But I did it & I’m loving it. I still think back to that day & when we were together, & how much I would take it all back uggh!


Dear Sam,

What you’re feeling is totally normal; it’s what I felt too during the early months of learning about my herpes diagnosis-- feelings of betrayal and anger.

You’ll find out as time goes by that you can easily learn to cope and just live with this silly virus.

Researching more about your condition and avoiding stress triggers can help a lot. If your ex is acting that way then maybe you’re just better off without him.

There is a guy out there who will accept and love you for who you are, despite herpes. Why don’t you take a look at this article about Living with Herpes? It has tons of tips that might be useful to your healing process.

Remember you're not alone in this.

God bless.
