Find Peace with Yourself

I am a 21 year old nursing student and I was diagnosed with herpes four months ago. I lived my life in a nutshell so careful in everything I did. Always said this will never happen to me because of how informed I am. I had stored so much information about STDs, even the ones that aren't very common. I stayed a virgin until I was 20, simply because I knew the risks, you know.

Well like most I met this guy with whom I fell for hard, we began to date, and have now been together 2 1/2 years. I love him with all of my heart but he gave this to me four months ago. Yes, I realize it can show up years later and there is a possibility he didn't cheat but I was so hurt. Everything I worked so hard for, everything I did to prevent this from occurring in my life, but it happened and slowly I had learned to deal. He has never had an outbreak, I have had one, and when I mean one I mean one lesion, if it wouldn't have been for me checking myself on a daily basis I would have never known it was there. I had a very mild outbreak. I am on suppressive therapy, I take Valtrex once daily and it works. Just to be safe.

My main purpose for this is to attempt to end all the negativity. I have armed myself with even more information. The best thing to do is learn. You will still be able to live out all your dreams, get married, have children, etc. I wish more people were informed about herpes. Of course, you go through a rough time, I did, it took weeks for me to get out of bed. All I wanted to do was sleep and cry. You can't live your life like that. I know it is hard but hold your head high, if anything herpes will make you a stronger person. I know in the past few months it has made me so much stronger, I think I am healthier now than I was before. I constantly preach to my friends warning them, because a lot are naive. It can happen to anyone even if you have only had one partner. I am proof.

I plan on living my life, graduating from nursing school soon and starting a family with the person I love. We are still together and haven't let this affect our relationship, if anything it has made us stronger. I hope all who read my story come to terms with this and find peace within. God bless all and good luck.
