    The stigma around herpes is just about always worse than the condition itself. You just have to speak to your doctor about preventing flare ups and should be honest with future partners so the cycle doesn't continue. I am so, so sorry that this happened to you.

    PS: A LOT more of the population has herpes than you think.

    You tested positive for HSV-1, not HSV-2. (Anything less than .90 is negative.)

    Your life isn't ruined, I promise you!

    Do the research, more than half of the population has HSV-1. Take 1,000 mg's of Lysine every day. You're going to be just fine.
