I’m so sorry that this is all tangled up in other horrible things, I couldnt imagine having that reminder with outbreaks not knowing if that’s where it came from. I can say the fact that you are sharing your story shows how much strength you have. I know the feeling of your life being over with this diagnosis all too well. The stigma of it is so bad that its something completely different than I had ever imagined.
I keep trying to remind myself that it’s not what I used to think it is. My bf keeps telling me “it’s a skin disorder, nothing more, it’s like psoriasis” while I know this sounds ridiculous (hes trying) the fact that he is saying these things to me to make me feel better when he doesnt have it and could easily walk away I think shows that we are viewing it in a much darker light than we should be.
I know it’s more than psoriasis but we have to realize it’s not as bad as we think.
I think that’s one of the hardest things. We’ve had this amazing sex life for a year and a half and now theres all these blocks. He cant go down on me, we have to use a condom now. I’m so hypersensitive and worried about passing it to him that I feel like it might be the death of our sex life.
It would be easier if he came back positive when he was tested but everytime I think that I feel so guilty for that thought even crossing my mind.
Tx88: you’ve had it for a year with your bf without passing it? What precautions are you taking? What’s the hardest thing for you guys and what works? How much would you say its effected your sex life
I feel in this moment it’s made mine and my bf’s bond stronger but idk if that will last and he will get fed up with the road blocks
I was just diagnosed a couple of weeks alone. I can’t give you much support because I’m struggling myself. I did want you to know that you are not alone e when it comes to the shame. I feel the same and I dont know how to fix it but you are not alone.
