17 Year Old Woman With Herpes

Today I found out that i have hsv2. I can say I have hsv2 compared to saying I have herpes. I don’t know what I’m going up against. The best solution I have right now is to cry, but I’ve got a long journey ahead of me and crying isn’t going to get me there.
No, I haven’t accepted the fact that I have herpes, but I want to and need to. Reading some of the stories on here made me feel like I wasn’t alone. I’m a 17 year old girl with a bright future ahead of me and I need all the advice I can get.

    I contracted herpes when I was 17 too. I made a huge mistake that I wasn’t suppose to do. Sometimes I just cry and cry because I feel like my life is over and that I would never be able to have a normal relationship ever again. Especially at my age when teens now are disgusted by herpes, but I tell myself that one day I will find the man that will truly love me and that will accept me and my herpes. I see herpes like a detector. A guy that will truly love you for you will stay with you knowing that you have hsv2. Yes you’re right. You have a great future ahead of you! Make your dreams come true and pursue them with passion. Don’t let hsv2 bring you down. Just know that you are not alone(:
