    I feel very sad. I found out a few weeks ago

    that I have genital hsv1. Got it from a random hookup with a girl I met online. Dumb move. The thing that makes me feel sad is that I didn't where protection and I had a condom with me. I'm so dumb and I regret it everyday. It feels like there is no point in living. :(
