Looking For A Herpes Support Group?
If you are in the Denver Metro area, this could be a great resource for you.
I am thrilled to announce that I am now serving on the Colorado H Friends board. This is a non profit that supports people with herpes in the Denver metro area. If you live in Colorado and would like a resource for meeting great people and getting some of your questions answered in person, check out www.coloradohfriends.com.
I joined this organization a couple of years ago and have met some amazing people. They have social events, educational evenings and a monthly meet and greet at a restaurant in Denver. This organization is very careful in keeping your herpes status private. In fact, herpes is not even talked about or mentioned in public settings.
Just this last Christmas, I went to their private holiday party and discovered that two women had come to the party and did not even know what the H in the “Colorado H” group stood for. They had met some wonderful people at a public event and thought that the group was so much fun, they wanted to come to the holiday party. I had a good belly laugh with them once they realized what the H stood for. What a great testament to the group’s commitment to people’s privacy!
If you don’t live in Colorado, I still encourage you to seek out a support group in your area. What you will be sure to find is a group of dynamic, normal everyday people. Herpes does not target any socioeconomic or religious sector. People with herpes are everyday people like you and me. The sooner you realize that, the better you will be and the faster you will heal emotionally. You are not alone and a support group is a great place to turn to. This Spring, we will be launching our own support group for women with herpes at www.PinkTent.com. This will support women with herpes all around the world. Stay tuned!
