Question for 10years
I direct this question to you as you are intelligent and well knowledged with this disease. I've been diagnosed with gen. HSV2 and living with it for 6 months. I know you've answered how to cope with it, but I'm having a really hard time accepting this. I know there will be no cure, ever, perhaps a vaccine in the next ten years to reduce transmission, but how can I move on and pretend as though everything is ok? I'm a young professional, single (for obvious reasons), straight male but would rather not share more about my life in a public setting and would prefer a private conversation. I do have a friend who is very supportive, though not infected, and he always tells me everything will be fine, and its nothing to worry about... It just doesn't feel that way. Long question short, how do I develop your mind set, and is there a potential for this to devastate m life?
