I'm not doing too well since I found out about my diagnosis of HSV-2. I cry myself to sleep almost every night, and have no idea how to accept what is going on. If anyone has any advice I would really appreciate it.

    What you're going through is normal. I think that almost everyone on this site was very shocked when they learned about their condition. I will be honest, it does kinda suck. It makes dating more difficult, as if it isn't difficult enough as it is. But it's not a death sentence. Look at the pictures and profiles of the people on here. They are happy normal people living life to the fullest. That's what you have to do. You have been knocked down. You have two choices. Lay there and feel sorry for yourself, or pick yourself up and go on with your life and be happy. Take care, and feel free to contact me if you want.

    Life always throws us curve balls and we just have to dodge them!! As you can see, we are not the only ones out there and life can go on with someone else that is the same. I first was devastated that someone would not tell me and not tell me after we had dated for a while. I realized "It is what it is" and it does me no good to questions or be sad all the time about it. Please see that it is not the end of the world. You can go on and live a great life with the right person.
