STD at 20
When i went to college I was still with my boyfriend of 2 years. I went to college literally on the other side of the world but we still were going to try long distance. We tried it for the first year but then decided to see other people.
My new boyfriend was my best friend initially. Before he became my boyfriend he was in hospital at one point for an unknown reason so he was tested for all STDs and he tested negative for everything. Soon after that we got together and we always used condoms yet one day I get these sores "down there",go to the doctor and Im told I have herpes. My boyfriend said he didnt know he had it but he did sleep with someone between the time he was released from hospital and the time he first slept with me.
We have broken up since then. Trust me I tried to make it work but it was too hard. I cried myself to sleep for over a year, I still cry every now and then. reason being my highschool boyfriend and I were always planning to reunite after college but now obviously I cant. On top of that I have an STD that has no cure! The only way for me to meet someone (in my opinion) is online dating because I cant get back into the dating world and be rejected over and over again when I have to tell the person I am dating that I have an STD right before things start to get intimate.
So thats my story. I was first diagnosed in may 2007 and i am still dealing with it. still single and feel as if no one will ever love me. those datings sites cost money, money i dont have now because im still in college!! i just feel like its so unfair because college students are so promiscuous. I have had two long term relationships, slept with only two guys, always used condoms and now im the one that gets an STD?? age old question...WHY ME!?
