Join us on the herpes forum discussion boards where you are free to talk about anything you like — yes, ANYTHING. Share your story, share herpes facts, share yourself and support others in doing the same.

You know, herpes shame is a sneaky thing: it causes us to isolate, to not talk about it out of fear of being rejected, fear of being judged … but the more we keep it to ourselves, the bigger the shame gets. And sharing what we feel ashamed about actually decreases shame. Posting on the herpes forums gets it out of your head and out into the world. By sharing, we all realize we’re not alone in this; and we help others really get that, too. You can be as anonymous as you would like, but whatever you do, don’t keep it to yourself! Even simply saying “I have herpes” and letting out how you feel about it can be such a freeing feeling. Share it with us and let us be there for you.
