Not a Success Story: CRISIS! HELP!

by Desperate

I was diagnosed with herpes about 2 years ago while being pregnant with my son. The great news was that, I delivered him safely, thank God. The bad part was the fact that I had the most stressful, painful and emotional bouts of my life!

My son’s father accepted me with the condition because it had been in my system for many years. I did not know I had Herpes at the time and was not experiencing outbreaks. Until that fateful day when I decided something strange was going on with my body and I had to finally see a doctor to get an accurate diagnosis.

Thankfully during the ordeal, I had someone to share my experience with. Unfortunately later, he too contracted the virus. I was prescribed medications and I have not had any outbreaks since the diagnosis.

Since then we have recently broken up, and I have just started dating once more. I recently met a wonderful guy that seemed perfect for me. We had seen each other a little over a month, and upon returning from a trip, we had unprotected sex. It was a DUMB mistake that I allowed to happen more than once.

I do not know if I was in denial or what, but I was being so INCONSIDERATE and could possibly ruin this man’s LIFE. It’s been about 3 weeks since we first had sex and all of a sudden he starts acting weird. I think he may have gotten something and is not telling me about it. He may be finding the perfect time to disclose the information to me.

I’M SICK TO MY STOMACH and have even considered suicide because of this!!!

I don’t know what to do, what to say, what to act, let alone how to feel right now! I need help NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hang in there!

I read your story and understand. I've not told a couple of people either. It was a mistake.

But I've forgiven myself and tried my best to move on.

Best is to be honest with your partner. Totally honest and ask for forgiveness.

Reflect on your actions. Be kind to yourself, we're all looking for love in the end.

Don't think about doing anything serious. Good time to turn to friends and God.
