I’m thinking that this story is worth sharing especially to those who are suffering from the awful effects of a genital herpes infection. Many people who aren’t familiar enough with this disease are often falling into the pit embarrassment that they will regret for the rest of their lives.
As they said, ignorance spares no one. An so, not knowing anything about herpes might cause you a bit of trouble.
Even if you are not sexually active, I really think that you still need to continue reading on and see how a single mistake will change you’re your life. In my case, I’ll admit that the herpes infection completely changed the way I lived and made me enter a new phase in my life. Looking back, I still think that it was utterly frustrating and embarrassing experience to learn to cope with.
That time that I knew about having a genital herpes infection was one of the darkest moments of my life. It seems like everything turned darker. I never thought that I will be on the stage in which I will have to suffer much, bearing both the physical and emotional pain of having the infection.
I was married for almost two years, living a happy and a simple life with my kid and husband. I met my husband Richard back in college and we have been together ever since. I used to think that life was a fairy tale.
After a few days, I was starting to experience the increasing itchiness and soon enough, the sore became more painful that I can bear. At that time, it never really occurred to me that it might be anything remotely related to herpes. I thought that it was just a simple irritation or some allergies that I was having.
I had no clue and I never considered any kind of STD only because I know that I have not slept with any other man except my husband. And I had absolute faith that he was also sleeping with me, exclusively.
Since my symptoms were getting worse, I decided to talk to my husband about it. At first, he would not admit to anything and pretended that he had no clue. But then, my sores started to get worse and so I guess it finally got to his conscience and he finally confessed and he told me that it was never his intention to cheat and ask for forgiveness. Let me tell you, it was a very horrible time in our lives. But in the end, I decided to forgive him for what he did.
Herpes Made Me Drift Away From Everybody
But forgiveness will not change the way herpes have made my life miserable. I can’t even stay close enough to anyone, even my kid after knowing my situation. I started to become aloof to other people, even my own family.
However, I know I still have to go on for my kid. So I decided to find some professional help. I went to my friend who was a doctor to get the best advice on how I can get over the effects of my infection. My friend gave me a prescription and plenty of friendly advice. In the end, I had to use several antiviral products and drugs to minimize the itchiness and the pain of sores that I was suffering from.
After a week of using it, I found my relief. The sores started to heal a bit and the pain I felt started to really subside. I guess the outbreak was over by then.
Right now, I’m starting to get better. Although, I know that I am not totally cured. But still I know I can stop the outbreak by starting a clean and healthy life again. I know it will never be the same again, but I have to go on for my family. But of course, not with my cheater husband this time. I have to live a normal life with my kid and all the people around me that are willing to help me all the way.
This was a story shared to us by someone who wanted to remain anonymous. In the end, monogamy can only get you so far if your partner does not practice it. So make sure to practice safe sex and stay with the same partner!
