So after what I thought was a yeast infection, and finding out my boyfriend had cheated on me with a girl that has an STD, I thought it a good idea to go get checked since I've been having symptoms. I read up on almost every STD/STI under the sun and went into the clinic hoping for the best, but expecting the worst. And what do you know? The nurse says, very rudely I may add, 'Oh, you deffinately have herpes'. So I've been diagnosed with Genital Herpes and am having my first OB and man is this the worst pain I've ever dealt with. They say your first OB is the worst and I believe it. I need help, I need as many remedies or quick tips or tricks to relieve the pain and itching, I can't deal anymore! I can't go to the bathroom, not even in my own bath water. I can hardly walk without waddling like a penguin from place to place. I've barely slept since the OB just keeps getting worse and the pain is keeping me awake. I was prescribed the antivirals or whatever they are, I've been taking them 3 times a day, but I only started yesterday. I'm ashamed of myself, I don't know how I could let this happen, I feel disgusting and like everyone looks at me lower now, even those who don't know my condition. I feel lower in the world, I'm so depressed, I'm in so much pain, and this site really helped me, seeing so many other people going through it too, and working past the pain, and it makes me feel like I'm not alone. Thank you, and good luck to everyone!
