"I'm too open?"
 
   So I've pretty much told most of my family, my boyfriend, my best friend and then just some random ppl when i was drunk. I regret it because its like i feel like they all think of me differently. I try to talk to my mom about it she just made me feel bad about telling ppl. I'm like thanks. ITs hard feeling like you have this secret. I only wanna talk about it when im drunk. And then its like lets tell the world some bastard gave me herpes. the next day im like WTF is wrong with me. So thats where i am today. I wish i knew someone personally that has it. just to have someone to talk too

   Alcohol tends to effect people in different ways.. I know personally when I drink I tend to be open, also.. Though, I have yet to spill the beans about my status while drunk..

All-in-all, it's up to you who you choose to tell.. It will show other's character as to how they react/accept/reject you, honestly. Perhaps if you start doing this while sober, you can enlighten some of your friends/people who you tell about the virus in general.. Give them a little education? I wish I could, especially the field I work in, I love sharing and educating.. I know what you mean about living in a secret, as I catch myself almost telling many people too.. I stop in fear of judgement, myself.. Still getting over that hurdle. Hope all goes well with you.

I, too, end up telling people I have herpes, regardless of state of inebriation. I find that some people judge me, and some people think it's cool that I'm willing to talk about it, and some people tell me that they have it, too!

Maybe if you frame it as a way to educate people more than a "some bastard gave me herpes" thing, it might change how people see the conversation.
