"2 Years Ago...."
 
   ...I really did think my life was over when I heard that I had HSV-2. I sunk into a deep depression and I gained 50 pounds. I stressed and worried and felt like crap about myself. However, with time I am surprised to look back on it now and realize how much I have adjusted. I used to think about it daily, all day long. Now, once in a while it crosses my mind but I don't feel negative and down about myself. Sure sometimes I get anxious about the thought of having to share it with a new partner, but I have not been rejected for it yet. The point is, life has gone on for me. I realize that there is so much in my life that has nothing to do with HSV. It's part of my physical body, but it says nothing about my heart or my intellect or my sense of humor.

I used to read these kinds of posts and think "that will never be me, I will never be ok with this." Well, here I am 2 years later and I am here to say I am in fact, ok.

Life actually does go on. I think the vast majority of us had the "Oh, crap! It's over." moment, but eventually discover that it isn't really the end of anything unless we consciously make it so.

Life is so big and that virus is so small. It's a matter of perspective.

   Yeah. I really found out a connection between my obs and my state of mind. I have been also under a program that taught me a great deal on this perception thing. I used to have around 5-8 obs a year but ever since I went under this program, I haven't had any. Although it has been only 3 months
