This Disease Does Not Have To Control Your Life! It Does Not Have To Take Over Your Relationships, And You Shouldn’t Let It!

I’ve thought for so long that because of my herpes, no one would want to date me or be with me. This, in fact, is not true! I recently broke up with my boyfriend, and he was the first person to be okay with my having it. We were intimate, and safe, and he has not caught it. I also told my new crush, and he was even more accepting than the last. He told me that he didn’t care what I have, he cares about me and only me, for who I am. This disease does not have to control your life! It does not have to take over your relationships, and you shouldn’t let it! If the person genuinely cares about you, they’ll be okay with it and listen as to how to stay safe. I hope everyone who reads this gets inspired to tell their future partners, because spreading herpes is hopefully the last thing on all of our minds.
