Ouch. It stings the first time. When you realize the hell you've been dealing with is the butt of the joke in the Vegas-themed bachelor movie, during the late night monologue, or at the in-laws' Christmas party (true story, more later). It's not personal, so don't take...

 Oh, you are so much more. You may have recently disclosed to someone who is accepting of your diagnosis. Maybe your relationship status has moved from single to in a relationship. Perhaps it's gotten more serious, and you've had sex for the first time since becoming h...

Use them. Always. Latex or non-latex, flavored or glow-in-the-dark, they are one of the keys to preventing transmission to your sexual partner(s). I also should add that natural condoms, which are made from the tissue of sheep or lambs (commonly called lambskin or shee...

Yes, you can. You can have sex with the cute guy at the bar, the girl you've been checking out in class, but the way you go about getting that other person in bed may look a little different with a herpes diagnosis. I'm currently in a committed relationship with someon...

It's such a cliche, but it is for a reason, it's true: time heals. I'm approaching my one-year anniversary of my herpes diagnosis (let's celebrate!). My outlook about life and love has done a complete 180, from collapsing on the floor and crying out "no one will ever w...

We're all in this together. Talking to others living with herpes can be healing. Generate positivity in yourself by loving on others. Share a kind word to someone hurting with his herpes diagnosis. My words to you are a kind of pep talk to myself as I have my up's and...

If I've learned anything through my herpes journey, it's to let go of the anger. I cannot change my diagnosis. And being angry about having herpes will not make it go away. Instead, I changed my perspective about how I approach love and relationships. You should too. Y...

You can do this. You can disclose with composure, with dignity, with confidence. Before you do, though, remember who you were before your diagnosis. You are the same wonderful, vibrant, deserving person. Forgive yourself for what has happened, whether you were careless...
