The general shock has worn off, it’s been 10 days sinc my first OB started & 5 days since I was diagnosed. I’ve come to terms with the fact that I will have this for life, it will change me life, but it does not mean my life is over. I’m only 21, Originally when I found out I was so devastated I felt like suicide was my best option, I thought any chance of a decent life was over. I got over myself though & realized I was just going to have to learn to live with it. Now I’m more worried about how to take care of it. How do I keep it from spreading on my body? I’m HSV2 positive. Is there anything I can do besides antivirals? Any life style changes that will help to stay away from OBs? Will I ever be able to have sex again? Can it be passed with out sexual contact? Thank you in advance to anyone who can answer my questions, I feel very alone, my “giver” was a not so nice guy who things ended badly with before even realizing what he had given me.
