Depressed, please help !!!



Posted by kenlee87 2 yrs ago
Hi all,

I am guy 30 Asian expat moved to HK 3 years back. I caught herpes from my ex gf in 2016. Since then, my life has been a roller coaster, I am depressed, sad, feel like there's nothing much left for me in my life. I even took some medication for depression which helped me to get back on track. Now I live healthy but still i am concerned about my future, marriage.

My doctor told me many people have it unknowingly and it doesn't affect my life span . I can live a normal life but i have to keep informed about this to my future partners . Since I got this problem, I thought i will remain single forever, because who will date a guy with herpes. My doctor told me I can find a partner who has herpes too or ready to accept you with this problem. I tried to use Positive Singles, but most of the people there are from other countries, no one in HK. I heard there are secret facebook groups for herpes as well.

If anyone knows any local HK groups or support group for herpes, please let me know . I feel like I am dying alone, Sorry for the long message and thank you.

You are not alone:

Traditionally, HSV-1 has been known to be associated with orolabial herpes and HSV-2 with genital herpes. However, investigations have amply documented the increased trend of genital HSV-1 in many parts of the world. In a recent report, the proportion of HSV-1 anogenital isolates rose from <10% in the early 1980s to around 35% in the late 1990s and early 2000s.1
