It’s Seriously No Worse Than The Common Cold. Maybe Even Less Of A Problem Than That. Something That Used To Feel So Scary To Have Has Dissolved Into Nothing More Than A Minor Inconvenience.

A couple of months ago, I married the man who gave me herpes. I’ve actually never really been upset at him for this. He didn’t know he had it until it was too late, and truly, truly regretted it. In a way, it kind of brought us closer together. We’ve dealt with some hard times together, and every time, it strengthens our bond. We’re both living with GHSV-1, and it plays an incredibly small part in our life. After reading so much about it, it seems like such an insignificant thing to be dealing with. I wish every high school taught its students how common this is so that those who are uninfected could be less intimidated by it. In my experience, it’s seriously no worse than the common cold. Maybe even less of a problem than that. Something that used to feel so scary to have has dissolved into nothing more than a minor inconvenience.

Just wanted to share!
