Thanks again for your support during this time. I’ve since found out that the tests came back negative. The mystery still abounds as to what is actually going on with my vagina so, I’m off to the gyno as soon as possible.
Reading everyone’s stories was invaluable. I think everyone [whether infected or not!] should be sent to your site to read and educate themselves more fully on the stigma, the reality and the lives of those who live with this disease. I take my hat off to all of you who are surviving, living and loving. And as I’ve learned a lot more about myself during this time of waiting and not knowing, I’ve come to appreciate life a little better. As well as to be much more discerning with my relationships and be more trusting of my intuition.
Thank you SO much again. I was fully prepared for the news this afternoon so when my doctor told me I was “all-clear” you could’ve knocked me over with a feather, such was my belief that it was herpes. I am armed with so much information and aim to protect myself, no matter what and am very happy to read those stories of people who have found love and are living their lives to the fullest. My fear of this disease is minimal and the knowledge that there are 1 in 4 people living with herpes says a lot.
Happy 2009! Is there any way I can serve the herpes community? Any donation I can make? Best wishes, – K
K asked me how she could help. Her feedback touched me so much that I asked her if it would be ok to share it with you, my readers. She agreed.
If my site has helped even one person out there who that that their life was over because of a herpes diagnosis, I hope that you now have hope.
