You are not alone… There are Millions like you

First of all I would like to thank each and every person on for being so open, caring and willing to help me out when I had no one by my side.

A few months ago I was diagnosed with the herpes simplex virus. I was dating a guy whom I thought I could trust and spend the rest of my life with. However, it turns out that I was being cheated. Besides, he also gave me a STD that will stay with me for the rest of my life.

I was never comfortable during the diagnosis process. The doctor I was seeking help from judged me and that made me even more uncomfortable. I was in desperate need of someone to talk to and get some quality advice. I felt so lonely and depressed. No one in my family had shared that they had herpes so I wasn’t okay with doing so either.

Then I got to know about this amazing website. It was so good to see complete strangers coming out to help me deal with symptoms and offering unconditional support. I read many stories of people who found love online and that inspired me. I hope that one day I can make some impact on a person having herpes.

Advice for others

Remember that you are a wonderful person with an STD. This doesn’t taint your character. Keep your head high and don’t let this ruin your life.
