I was diagnosed with herpes yesterday. I don’t know what to do with myself, I wasn’t really given any information by the nurse she kinda just said “you have herpes” and sent me on my way. She said she’s 99% sure it’s herpes and did a swap and sent me for a blood test. I’m just praying that it’s not it but I don’t think it could be much else, she said the dean could come back negative but the bloods will confirm it. I had to do my own research and I think it’s just scared the life out of me. I’m only 19 and I feel like I’ve messed my life up MAJORLY. I’ve been put on aciclovir for 5 days. My partner is supportive about it, baring in mind I got it from him he kinda has to be. But it’s very normalised to it cause most of his mates have it, but I just don’t want to accept it like I dont want to be in this situation. I’m in so much pain, I can’t pee without extreme pain and I’m having about 5 showers a day cause it’s the only thing that eases the pain and I feel so dirty and disgusted with myself. I don’t really know what I’m doing with myself, I just keep crying.
