When life gives you Herpes, make lemonade.
Living with Herpes
It’s not easy, but it doesn’t have to be hard.
If you’ve been diagnosed with herpes, know that it won’t always be difficult, and you can still have a happy and healthy sex and love life when you live with herpes!
Herpes is a virus and like many others, you can learn to live well with it. It’s not anything to be ashamed of, and it’s not the end of the world!
When I contracted HSV2 (genital herpes) at the age of 21, I was devastated, confused, angry, and heartbroken. I thought my life was over.
Over the years my experience with living with the herpes virus has varied – from long periods of time with no symptoms, and a short period of time where I experienced frequent, recurring outbreaks. This was when I struggled with my relationship with herpes and most importantly, with myself.
The virus impacted me not only physically, but emotionally, socially, and psychologically. I became a victim of it. The shame and stigma I felt around the virus affected my self-worth, my self-esteem, and my self-confidence.
I was letting the virus control my life and how I felt about myself.
This is when I knew something needed to change.
I learned how to holistically manage, prevent, and heal herpes outbreaks naturally through diet, nutrition and wellness practices. I committed to deep, personal development work to heal what I believe to be the emotional triggers of my frequent outbreaks.
My life has drastically changed because of my journey with herpes. It’s one of the things that inspired me to do the work I do today.
I now support many people, both women, and men, on their journey of living with herpes and help them learn to manage, prevent and heal herpes naturally.
