Herpes dating atlanta
It might be better to break the news about herpes to someone who has already grown attached to you.

I was scared that if I admitted I had herpes to a potential partner, he would deem me imperfect and tainted, leave me, and confirm what I already feared about myself: I was unworthy of love, was meant to suffer, and didn't deserve a true partner in life. Eventually, I realized my dream of attending medical school, though I never disclosed my virus to my fellow students.
While I would readily discuss herpes and other viruses over coffee with my study group at Starbucks, I’d simply ignore the fact that we were reviewing and perfecting our knowledge of a taboo sexually transmitted disease that I housed in my own body.
There was a huge disconnect between my persona as a physician and as a patient.
As a physician, I was informing and educating patients on how to treat outbreaks, engage in safe sex, and live successfully with the virus.
