Starting to Love Life Again

by Amy

I was diagnosed with herpes one week ago today. At first, I was shocked by the news. I have never been a sexually active person and have only had a few boyfriends. I am in my mid 30's and thought my life was over. I have been in a serious relationship with my boyfriend for 3 months when I found out. I immediately told him and was scared of what might happen between us. He is getting himself checked out too. So far, he was thankful that I was honest with him and sticking by my side. He is a wonderful man and I hope we have better days ahead of us!

After being diagnosed, I started to research for herpes websites and online support groups to educate myself. I am very happy to have found this website! Thank you Gary! I feel much better about myself and have so much to live for! This virus will not define me and life does go on!


Dear Amy,

Thank you for sharing your story with us. We’re glad you find our website informative and helpful in your healing process.

It’s always great to see that people like you are paying it forward to others who are in the same boat. Not a lot of newly diagnosed people can say the same positive things like you’ve said and for that, you’re definitely a strong and positive woman with a lot of passion for life.

Continue to be an inspiration to us all. Hope it works for the best with you and your partner. Keep the faith.

God bless.
