  • What I wish I would have known
    by kevinxing on August 9, 2017 at 9:16 am

    I can remember when I was first diagnosed with herpes. It was around December 3, 2011. I had a few things come at me – I became an empty nester and about six weeks later my husband left. My life was turned upside down, to say the least, and then I got herpes symptoms that […]

  • It does get better
    by kevinxing on August 8, 2017 at 1:56 am

    I’ve been reading so many posts of people with a new diagnosis who are very upset, depressed, fed up, want to give up, think their sex life is over, and think they will never love or be loved again. This is long, but I hope it might help some of you…. About 10 years ago, […]

  • It was a blessing for me
    by kevinxing on August 8, 2017 at 1:29 am

    It was a blessing for me. I met the best woman I’ve ever dated on an std dating site and fell in love hard for her. We aren’t together anymore but she showed me what a healthy partnership could really look like and I’ll always be so grateful for our time together. Herpes has forced […]

    I would like to share a story…there once was a divorced, broken woman with herpes who made a decision one day to check out a singles dating website for people with herpes. There were so many men that wanted to find love, she was surprised and suspicious. Then she saw him, she read his story, […]

  • Arm myself with knowledge
    by kevinxing on July 26, 2017 at 8:49 am

    Early on in my diagnosis with H, I decided to arm myself with knowledge. Because knowledge is power. It allowed me to navigate the virus personally, as well as navigate relationships.   One thing I recommend (especially with the plethora of mis-information floating around) is to research trusted sources.(Dr. Hunter Handsfield is the leading expert […]

  • gifter was honest and disclosed prior to any activity
    by kevinxing on July 26, 2017 at 7:53 am

    Going through a divorce. Contracted hsv from the first (and only) guy I was with after 18 years with my husband. This happened a few months after I found out my husband was having an affair. Hsv triggered severe vulvodynia….which is WAY worse than herpes, believe me. (This is not just a skin condition….it’s a […]

  • overcame your denial about having herpes
    by kevinxing on July 25, 2017 at 1:51 am

    I’m impressed and inspired by everyone in here. It took me many, many years to shed the fear of disclosing. At first it was only with close friends and select family. Then I started dating and it was to potential sex partners. Nowadays it is just so matter of fact and normal to me – […]

  • It gives me hope that it won’t scare everyone away so easily.
    by kevinxing on July 24, 2017 at 9:19 am

    I was with my partner who transmitted it me, and life was good. Everyday got easier. Eventually the outbreaks slowed down, herpes became such a small part of my life I didn’t really even think about it. Fast forward a couple of years later. I’m no longer with my partner. We just weren’t right for […]

    by kevinxing on July 18, 2017 at 9:58 am

    Thanks! Yeah I’m just trying to be realistic about it and keep things in perspective. Who knows how many people you encounter every day who have it – it’s not something I used to even think about but now when I look at people I wonder! I’m hoping the day will come where I disclose […]
