Don’t stress! The worst part is over - and that’s getting the diagnosis. And yes I truly believe hearing the diagnosis from my doctor was more painful than my outbreaks. Because what really hurts is the stigma. But fuck everyone. Your still the same person as before. Nothing has changed, and if people are judging you or treating you differently then they aren’t worth your time.
You need to give yourself more time. 2 months isn’t that long, you just need more time to allow yourself to heal. It took me a long time. But honestly one morning I just woke up and I was like - you know what fuck this I’m the same person as before, I’m not going to let this destroy me I got too much other shit going for me to let this bring me down. Tumblr was a massive development for me - my diagnosis was the only reason I came to tumblr in the first place. And through my darkest days it was like the light at the end of the tunnel. It reminded me that I wasn’t alone. And none of us are alone - you hve the support of the entire hsv positive community here backing you. It’s okay to feel sad but at the end of the day you gotta be positive and pick yourself up and honestly you will be fine! You got this.
Fuck, my tea.
