I realized I had genital herpes after I had my son. I was 22 and my son was a few months old when I left his father. I did not marry his father. I went to a doctor and was told it was probably herpes. I do not know if it was from his father. I was sexual and do not know who I got the herpes from. Years later I got fever blisters on the edge of my nose. It happened every couple years. I have had 5 nose blisters. I just moved and got a deep cold. The nose just came up again. I looked up "herpes" and just found out I have cold sore herpes. 30 years ago, I first had genital herpes 4 times a year for many years. It started coming up once a year and started moving anal. I took best care of myself. Herpes stopped coming for many years. I was quiet about herpes. I did not have sex when genital herpes was happening. I know I have type 1 and type 2 herpes. I have been non-sexual for years as I went through a 2 month coma in 2005. It was taken 3-1/2 years to take speech again. I re-made my life, live on CA SSI and moved back to the Sonoma area. [46939]

I was diagnosed when I was 19. I couldn`t believe it and felt embarrassed and ashamed. I didn`t want to believe it for a long time. I had been having outbreaks since around 12, long before I ever had sexual experiences. Both of my parents have the same outbreaks as I have and my mother at the time told me they were from wearing too tight of jeans (since that is what her doctor told her when she was younger). I didn`t think anything of it at the time - I thought everyone had them. When I finally excepted it and talked to my doctor about it, she said that I could have contracted it as a child, if someone didn`t wash their hands when they changed my diaper or a number of other situations. I still don`t know how to deal with the fact that I feel like nobody is ever going to love me again. I`ve told a few friends and close family members, but I don`t know how someone will ever want to be with me again. [46919]

I just found out that I had Herpes about two days ago. That was the worst news that I have ever heard. I thought that it couldn`t happen to me no way not me. When I got the news I cried and thought that my life was over. I didn`t know how to tell my partner I was afrid that he would have left but he didn`t. All he said is that we will get through it. He is now being tested also for the herpes virus. I am still trying to deal with it because I have outbreaks on my cervix it`s hard to know when exactly it started or how long I had it for. I have no clue of where I have gotten it from but what I do know now that I have to be really careful for myself and my children. [46913]

in 2006 was when i got this from my unfaithful boyfriend a few days after my 21st birthday, i thought i was going to DIE!! i thought of every way possible to end my life and tried. it was only god who kept me sane during that horrible time. i am now 27. yes i have a fiance and a child who loves me dearly. it was hard telling him bout me. but he deserved the truth and he loved me more for giving him the chance to make the decsion i never got. i refuse to have intercourse during an out break. he is very supportive and understanding. our child is very healthy and did not get the virus. i read ppl s stories often on here. it hurts me for those who suffer from this virus. i never thought i would find LOVE! but i did and so can u. i treat myself by shopping or just holding my child when i have out breaks and realise im BLESSED!!! so please don`t be afraid of rejection give the person a chance something most of us never had in life. yeah the diseae sucks. but life is what you make it. STAY ENCOURAGED... [46907]

I contracted Herpes less than six months ago. Since I had my first outbreak I have only had one more, though the first was pretty horrifying. Contracting herpes has been a major life changing experience, forcing me to re-evaluate my relationships and actions. The biggest challenge has been finding someone who will be open to and understanding of the disease.When I told the person whom I contracted it from their reaction was "That`s gross", which only compounded on my fear of telling people, not the mention my ability to be honest and open. I started dating someone and was not honest with them at first. After about a month it ate away at me to where I couldn`t take not telling them anymore, and when I did it completely destroyed the chance of the relationship furthering. After that I was pretty positive that any potential partner was going to react in the same way. I recently met someone, but instead of letting time pass before telling them I chose to them right away. It was an odd moment of liberation, being honest from the very begining, and it was definitely one the hardest things I`ve had to do, but my honesty paid off. They listened to my explanations of the virus, did research on their own, and have decided that they want to date me, regardless of the herpes. My advice to anyone who contracts it is to just be honest, it doesn`t change who you are, and if people aren`t willing to work with you and see past it, then they aren`t worth your time. [46906]

I am 15 years old I have a boyfriend that I love with all my heart. I did not intend my freshman year to go this way. But I cant plan my life.What I thought was a yeast infection led to be the heartbreaking and crushing results of herpes.Disappointed and lost I knew not what else todo but to tell my boyfriend right away..This is my story. In my own beliefs people are cruel.They take no time to meet you and judge quickly.But as you all know we are just like others.My family and boyfriend couldnt be more understanding. I know the mistakes I made along the way are what got me here today.Now I know.Herpes is something we can all live with and I hope you are reading this and it means something to you as much as it does to me.We all make mistakes and maybe you didnt..Maybe this found you.We all have our own stories.This which makes us unique.So wear your smile and be proud of who you are.Herpes doesnt make you who you are.Stay positive and proud.I found out I was herpes positive yesterday.The doctor said it would be about a week to get results.With uncountless prayers and tears not to mention worries I somehow am pulling my self through this. and I know you can too. Just have faith. [46903]

I was told I had herpes 2 yrs ago how devasting it was,I have never trusted anyone the way I`ve trusted my partner for 18yrs to find out that he had cheated on me. Through counseling and my Faith in God the word acceptance has came into my life.We`re created by God and can endure all things with Gods love and mercy,I can and will endure this day by day and have forgiven my partner for his betrayel. So to all of those that are feeling down, saddened, depress,and seem as though life has done them an injustice, Look to the Heavens whench cometh your strength. God is always with us and puts no more on us than we can bare,it`s so easy to Praise God when things are at it`s best, but the true test of Faith comes when we face obstacles such as Herpes!! then we truly know the meaning of Faith in God. May God continue to bestow his bountiful blessings upon all of us !!! [46895]

I recently just contracted herpes. I had been doing so well with the condom thing and about 2 months ago i messed around with an ex of mine and 2 wks later i had a sore down there. Needless to say, i was and i`m devastated. I jus regret even messing with him. I`m slowly coming to terms with this.I realize that this is with me for life and its frustrating. I now take valtrex everyday and plan to use condoms along with the pills, but thats when i finally get the urge to have sex with someone again. I just feel cheated out of my life. I`m not sure how i will approach the idea of telling a future partner of my status, but I will cross that bridge when i get to it. [46888]

i thought no one would ever love me again. i contracted the virus when a man raped me. i have only had it for about 3 months now, and i haven`t had any symptoms since the initial occurance. i am now in a relationship and it was the hardest thing ive ever done, telling my boyfriend, because we had dated a year before when i did NOT have the virus. but he accepts me and we are trying to make it work. i take l-lysine daily and plan to get on valtrex daily once i have the money for the prescription! it`s not the end of your life. i still get really bummed out some nights, that someone did this to me and i can never get rid of it. it makes me feel ashamed of myself, but the important thing is to deal with the sad feelings but embracing everything about who you are, because this virus is NOT who you are.
