I was diagnosed today with herpes. I am so afraid and confused about everything right now. I met this guy last week and we spent the entire weekend together. Thankfully, we made the mature decision to wait to have sex. Im sure within the next few weeks, he will be ready to have sex. This guy is very special to me and treats me like Ive never been treated before. I do not want my new diagnosis to ruin this good thing. When is the right time to tell him? And how do I tell him? I'm just so depressed about this entire thing. Im only 19; he's 22. ;( I do believe I am mature for my age because I am completely independent from my parents. But right now, I just don't have a clue what I am supposed to do about any of this. ANY advice would be GREATLY appreciated.View Thread
I was tested for everything in April. I came back positive for chlamydia. I started having sores in May and I went back to the doctor. My swab test was positive for herpes, but my blood test was negative. She said it was not identified which type I have. I am going back to the doc tomorrow to discuss this and get a checkup. She said since the antibodies are not in my blood yet that means I haven't had this long.
I've also decided once I think I have accepted this disease as it is not the end of the world, then I think it will be easier to tell him. But I just am very worried he will leave. I am trying to remain strong though. My closest friends are trying to remind me that if he's worth my time he will accept this and let our relationship move forward. It's just hard. View Thread
