Hello, I'm new here!
So today I find out that I have Herpes and I feel like it's changed my life. I feel so so stupid for sleeping with someone with no protection. What was I thinking?! One of the hardest ways to learn your lessons.
I've never had an STI before so this is all new to me. I've never been in so much pain before. I can barely walk at the moment and that's when I knew it wasn't just 'thrush' as the doctor said on Monday. I think the worse is that I can't even poo because my anus is all swollen and sore. I'm just hoping I can get through this. The thought of having it again and again actually scares me.
I'm just asking for advice of how you deal with this basically. How on earth do you tell someone you're with that you have Herpes?! Luckily I've just come out of a relationship so that shouldn't happen any time soon but still you never know.
Any home remedies that have worked for you guys as well? Please share your thoughts. I'm in so much pain, I need to get better. It's my birthday on Monday as well!
Thank you for reading.
