Sad And Pissed!

Today I went to the doctor to figure out what was going on. She looked at it and said it looks like herpes...my jaw dropped and I was in shock. I haven't even been sexually active since my last boyfriend over 3 months ago. Then I started crying...all I could think is why me?! I'm a single mother who hardly has time for dating anyways and now u throw this in...I'll never fine anyone to accept me now! :( she took a swab and were waiting on results but she said it looked like herpes...so I guess I'm just assuming its that. I know my life isn't over...but I have nobody to talk to about this and I feel disgusting, ashamed, embarrassed. What can I do to help move on...please!?

I completely understand how you feel. I was recently diagnosed a couple months ago and still have trouble dealing with it. Especially I havent found some that I could talk to. I use to fell ashamed, dirty, embarrassed, disgusted, and everything else you could think of. I still do at times. I dont think that feeling completely goes a way. I think you just learn to cope. I am 22 with no kids and a ex/boyfriend who I have been with for three years that has just had a baby with someone else. When I think about all the things, including hsv, that has happened to me I just think about the people who have had worst things happen. I guess what I'm trying to say is that you should just keep you head up. There are some people that have it much worst.
