You are NOT alone...recent data shows that one in every four people have herpes; that is a huge percentage! hi, i'm 18, and my doctor says that i probably have herpes. what abou tthose hideous cold sores i keep reading about? I guess, i need someone to talk to to, or tell, because i've been hiding and am so alone. I am sure it has been answered before; but i just found out (today) that i have one and two and that according to my lab work that i have had it for a while...i show no symtoms.i found out about 5 days ago and have felt so bad, so bad. i guess, i'm not to consurned about the genital aspect right now, i'm just concerned about the visible aspect when i'm hanging out with friends. I just reunited (this weekend) with a old high school "friend".You will still have the virus but living outbreak free is a whole new way of living!
Once applied, it kills the virus on contact and clears it up within 2 days. Any perticular food habits that we have to carry on for a good immune system.
I am scared of getting into a relationship as I do not want anybody to know. I have always been open and honest about it with partners, but am recently divorced and haven't really had to deal with this reality in my life for several years.
I am so scared of telling my new partner, but am confused on the signs of an attack. I have just started dating someone (we have actually slept together, with condoms).
I am afraid I will scare him away, and I really like this guy. It is difficult to tell someone that you want to become intimate with, but you have to if you decide to commit to them.
I am having lots of anxiety about it and don't want to hurt him. I think the actual anxiety of "having the talk" is worse than actually telling them.
