If you were going to kill yourself how would you do it? I don't want to live with HSV 2
It doesn't define you, you just need to have new rules for yourself. Sure you ran into the wrong person but that doesn't change you and you still have a future, one with someone who understands you or one that with a little more in common.
Smoking cigarettes. I've certainly found it the most enjoyable way to slowly kill myself. Jokes aside, no one wants to live with it. HSV is terrible at first, but your self worth isn't defined by a skin condition. Plus something like Psoriasis is way more gross. Only time makes it easier, and so does talking about it. Every time I shared with one of my friends, or even a total stranger, the disease suddenly had so much less power over my life. Cheer up chocolate chip, a stupid stigma isn't worth your life.
