"Cant keep my emotions in check"
   I got diagnosed a couple months ago. I have to tell you so many people have no idea what they are talking about when it comes to herpes. When i went ot he doctor and got tested of course i had an outbreak. I had to wait 2 weeks for the results. The doctor told me i had been exposed to the virus but it wasn't in my system so technically i didnt have it. she told me to wait 3 months and get tested again. 3 months came around and i talked to another doctor who said it would be a waste of time to test again because all it would show is the anti-bodies in my blood meaning my body had fought the virus. I was with my boyfriend for 5 months... It didnt make sense. If i takes 3 months to show up in your system after exposure but it wasnt in my system and id been with my boyfriend for 5 months. It had to be him. He broke up with me. I confronted him awhile later. He completely denied it. they told me i could get on medication for it. I just havent come to terms with it yet. I got my second out break a couple days ago. Worse than the first time but still minor only localized in one general area not necessarily painful. but still i know its there and its horrible. My boyfriend is really supportive. of curse i told him. How could i do that to someone. How could someone have done this to me i just dont get it. Somedays im okay i dont think about it. Then other days i cry and stay in bed all day. Im so depressed i never even want to shower. Every time i get drunk i just start crying all over the place and telling random ppl. the next day i just feel worse because i told ppl. I know its not the end of the wrold but i dont know anyone who has it so i cant think anyone i tell understands really. Im only 22.

   I just got diagnosed yesterday and my boyfriend doesn't think its from him, but just like in your situation, he has to be the one who gave it to me. I've spent the past two days in bed, mostly because I'm so depressed, but also because it is so painful to sit. I'm so happy you have a supportive boyfriend.

So I'm only 22 as well, and I can't tell anyone, and my boyfriend is not exactly helpful. If you want to private message me anytime, you certainly can. Maybe we can help stand each other up [:

   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...

Concerned Mother
