2. "RE: Cant keep my emotions in check"|
In response to message #1
I was just diagnosed as well, only somehow my best friend/sister somehow managed to give it to me. Truth be told, im not sure how, but the virus must live on surfaces for some ammount of time. I know that i contracted it from her because I am 35 weeks pregnant at the moment. My OBGYN of course gave me every test in the book when I was just a couple of weeks pregnant and all of my tests came back negative. That was the same time my friend found out she had herpes. She "claims" she was cautious anytime she was around me, but obviously that was a lie. |
A couple of weeks ago I noticed I was hurting down there as if someone had cut me with a razor or something. I wasnt concerned about it until I got to my OB appt 4 days later. The sore was still there and my doctor looked at it and told me she was going to run a test because it looked like herpes... I went totally insane. I told my friend that I was going to hate her for the rest of my life if she had given it to me. I got a call 2 days ago from my doctor with my results... they were positive for herpes! I am honestly not ok at the moment, and I am scared to death for my child. Yall are not alone in feeling down and scared and worried. I am mortified that I have this and honestly dont know where to start. I will be here for anyone just like I know that someone out there can help me.
I can say this much though, when i found out I had it, My fiance suprizingly accepted it with open arms, so I know that I wont be totally alone in this. We now have to go and get him tested though to see if he has it or not and if he doesnt, precautions will have to be taken to ensure he doesnt get it.
But I am 25 years old, cant tell a soul other than my fiance and my mother. This is my first child and I could rip my friend apart for taking away my ability to give child birth naturally. But, I am here for yall in any ways needed...
