Perhaps my story is very similar to your own, after all its an all too common story. Happy relationship turns out to be not so happy as it transpires your partner has been cheating on you.
Cheating partner surprises you with an unwelcome present…HSV-2 (Genital Herpes). You find out, relationship ends & your stuck with a lifetime of embarrassment, stigma & abstinence. I’m sure that Sounds familiar to many of you?
Like an awful lot of people who will read this letter I became the victim of this cruel and stigmatized condition through no fault of my own. I contracted herpes type 2 from my now ex-partner. To say I was stunned, angry and emotional was an understatement. I was devastated, it felt like my whole world had just caved in on me!.
It sickened me, especially as I had always been so very careful & never dreamed in a million years that I would ever end up with herpes. If I’m honest I guess I figured that people who did suffer with genital herpes were promiscuous and only had their selves to blame, how wrong I was!.
I suffered with Herpes ‘Needlessly’ for nearly 2 years, I say needlessly because now I know there really is no need for anyone to continually suffer with herpes outbreaks (more on that in a moment). Back then I believed that my doctors knew best so I did what they told me.
I followed my doctors advice to the letter and quickly started taking a prescribed Anti-Viral (suppressant), I won’t mention the specific brand here as I don’t want to run into any problems with the manufacturer, so I will just say it was a very common drug used to treat Genital herpes.
