    Going to take the plunge here...

    Any others out there living with G-HSV1 or G-HSV2? I was diagnosed with type 2 a few months ago, haven’t dated since, having constant outbreaks partly due to the stress and really struggling with it to be honest.

    Would be nice to hear from others who may have experience of this.

    Well done for taking the plunge. I'm sorry to hear you are struggling - physically as well as emotionally I would expect. It's not an uncommon condition but I suppose because people are reluctant to talk about it so this makes it more difficult to find out about how others sufferers cope with it. Was any emotional support offered when you were diagnosed?

    Thanks for the reply. Not really, no - I’m teaching overseas right now so was pretty much told it isn’t a big deal. I have all the facts but it’s the effect it has on my mental health that is the toughest.
