Herpes Diagnosis – Just Diagnosed with Herpes? It’s Ok – STD Podcast

By Jenelle Marie Pierce

Anonymous asks about a herpes diagnosis: "Jenelle, how does someone accept having an incurable infection like this? It has been about a month since I have known, and I have been nothing but depressed. I have barely been able to get out of bed most days, and I have quiet often thought about suicide. I just want my old life back. I feel like I can’t tell anyone about this, and I don’t know how I will be able to find someone who is accepting of this condition. I always assumed I would get married and have kids, and this just puts such a roadblock in front of all of that, and I am worried I will never have another relationship or sex ever again. I am going through my second outbreak, and I am just concerned I will always have this reoccur, though I have read some people stop getting outbreaks after a while. I just want to go back to enjoying life how I was, but I am not sure how to get there. I feel like I had my life setup so well to be pretty happy and carefree, and I ruined it by making one stupid decision." What to Expect When You’re Expecting…a Podcast In an effort to cater to short attention-spans (mainly, my own), we keep these podcasts between 5 and 15 minutes in length. When we have guests on the show, sometimes, they’re a little bit longer, but we know you’re busy. Consequently, we promise to always do our very best to be as concise as possible. Today’s Podcast Today’s podcast runs about 19 minutes in length, and we’re talking about a herpes diagnosis. Jenelle answers an anonymous reader's questions after having been just diagnosed with herpes. LISTEN in a new window ——>>>> Herpes Diagnosis – Just Diagnosed?
