And if it took getting an std to take better care of myself, to stress out less, and made me smarter than I cant hate it all together, its just a bummer to have an outbreak.
But hey, I take my valtrex and I ride my bike, go swimming and camping. It’s truly sad how disgusting people are in terms of what they say about herpes when the don’t know a thing about it, just what they have heard or think they heard.
I wish someone could get the balls to talk about it publicly and not one of thoese silly commercials. When I was in high school I use to make fun of the Valtrex commercials, you know, they use to show people doing all this adventurous or exciting things like horseback riding, mountain climbing, canoeing, bike riding, whatever.
And I would say something stupid like, “well, I didnt know you had to have herpes to do all that, I almost wish I could get it.” A year after graduation I was having my first outbreak.
thanks If ure trying to meet sum1 there are websites such as If sum1 likes u, don’t be afraid to open up.
Im not saying go ahead and tell ur business to everyone you feel that ure attracted to, but life is all about risks. Your life is different now, but ure not disgusting because u have it.
Whoever wrote this headline is completely ignorant. Perhaps whoever wrote this headline (after looking in the mirror one day and saying ewww to yourself), you need to imagine 4 of your closest female friends. Now you need to realize that ONE OF THEM probably has herpes. Are you going to stop respecting her and loving her, basically thinking of her as “dirty” now? So , I’d keep my mouth shut if I were you, because those of us who are infected are SICK of hearing all the jokes, and nasty comments. the only reason i take the valtrex is to protect my partner… I am always honest, and have never had anyone turn me down or be rude to me because of it…
1 in 5 American adults has herpes, those are high odds.
I dont sleep around, and i used condoms and still got it from someone i was in love with!! If jessica alba really does have it, then i say “you go girl” cause she hasnt let it affect her life…which no one should.
anyone reading this who is down on themselves, please keep your chin up… The stigma will subside as most of the population will find out they have it.
As long as ure on top of ur game, u can live a normal n fun life.
But the most important thing is accepting that something in ur life has change, but not You. wow having herpes is not fun, people are so quick to judge (i kno cause i was like that before i got it), i just wish there was a way to educat America a little better on ur health issues.
