Two days I was informed I acquired genital herpes. First, I was optimistic about it and knew I could deal with it...but that is what I do with most tough things I face when I first find out about it. I mask my anger, pain, sadness, with a smile. That did not last long. Soon, I was just uncontrollable and mentally just not stable. Kept asking myself, why? Along with my crummy emotions, since this is my first outbreak it has been extremely painful and uncomfortable. Going the bathroom, walking, doing anything other than being still is just too much for me. They say the first outbreak is the most intense. I just wanted to know about more about this and hear about more first OB experiences from others. I've done a lot of research on the internet but hearing from real people is what I think will help me best. Hope to hear from you.
P.S. For those just finding out about there condition, keep your chin up! This does not define you as a person, and you are not alone.
