Does any of this apply to you?

  • Herpes is constantly on your mind, taking you away from living your life fully
  • Having herpes has convinced you that you’re completely alone and always will be
  • Simply saying the word “herpes” makes your heart sink
  • You judge yourself mercilessly, saying things like “How was I so stupid to get herpes?”
  • You just had your first herpes outbreak; you feel lost and don’t know what to do
  • You’re waiting for a herpes cure to save you from having to deal with this
  • You have to distract yourself from remembering that you have herpes in order to just get through the day
  • Having the herpes talk (disclosing) scares the crap out of you and you don’t know how you could possibly tell someone “I have herpes”
  • You are disgusted — and think everyone else is, too — that you have herpes, so much so that it feels like it defines you for the worst (scarlet letter H)

Question for you: What is possible in your life when herpes stops hindering you and you get to really live your life?

Because here’s the truth: Who you are is more important than what you have. Period.

Let’s shift your negative associations with this simple virus. So many allow themselves to suffer with herpes. You don’t have to be one of them.

By the way, listen to herpes interviews (New Man Podcast, Coach Betty, Asking for What You Want as well as real people just like you and me telling their own herpes story). Also check out the herpes forum and the herpes opportunity weekend seminar.
