    Hi everyone,

    I recently got diagnosed with HSV-2 in July, and it has been a process to accept my new reality. At first, I felt numb and could not believe it. My first thought, like many of you, was who was going to love me now? It has been two weeks and I am coming to terms with it and no longer crying as much.Many reassure me that I will find love and that everything will be okay.I am thankful to have supportive loved ones, but want people who understand. Seeing everybody on this forum helps me feel not so alone.

    I am still trying to figure out what things trigger me and how to take care of myself.
    I did have 2 questions for yall.I am sure I will have more in the future haha.

    How do you shower with HSV-2? I am so scared to touch my area below because I do not want to spread it anywhere else.

    Also, do you know of any good support groups in the LA area?

    A little bit about me:
    I am 26 years old! I live in Southern CA and I work in education. I love to workout and watch reality TV.



    I just got diagnosed today and have been in tears since.

    It’s so hard to accept it and believe that the test results are right!

    I’m not from LA, I’m based in London but am happy to connect and talk about things as my diagnosis is fresh too.
