I am so angry. The guy I was dealing with passed me Hsv2 (herpes).
We started off great, the vibe was awesome. I couldn’t believe I found a guy who was my type physically and personality wise. I believe he is a good person at heart. After we became intimate, he started acting a little strange.. and then I find out why. He passed me Hsv2.
I gave him the news, he pulled away even more and ended up blocking me. (Of course, it has to be a lot easier to ignore something like this than to face it head on.)
This is obviously not easy for either for either of us. But I didn’t deserve this.
This has been the most frustrating situation. At times I feel a deep anger about everything. Other times I walk around trying to hide the fact that my eyes are welled up with tears. It’s been an emotional roller coaster.
I think whats bothering me is having someone effect your life so significantly not even acknowledge what they’ve done. They continue living their life as if nothing happened. Meanwhile you are trying to navigate this new illness.. deal with the pain, the complications, emotions, the bills etc.
I’m an attractive young woman, no kids, degreed, decent job. I’m a very picky dater and don’t have an extensive history, so the diagnosis was a shock.
I know I will heal from all of this. But right now I’m struggling with the emotions.. unusual for me. Talking with people who have been in similar situations has helped.
Has anyone been through anything similar? What advice do you have? How did you deal with the anger?
