I Just Found Out I Have Herpes

Hope Letter Blog Img

Right now you're probably in shock. You're distraught. You're angry, broken, and ashamed all at the same time.

You're thinking "How could this happen to ME?" "Why did this happen to ME?" "I can't believe they did this to me!"

Finding this out has shaken you in a variety of ways: physically, sexually, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually (depending on your beliefs).

This is what I want you to do: if you're crying that's fine, let those tears continue to flow. In between tears I want you to take a DEEP BREATH IN. Ready? 1...2...3: INHALE....Now EXHALE. You may actually just taken that deep breath or you're sitting there like who is this weird stranger on the internet telling me to "Woosah" right now?

If you did the latter option, we're going to do that it AGAIN. Take a DEEP BREATH IN. Ready? 1...2...3: INHALE....Now EXHALE. It's a fact that physical pain is increased when we don't breathe, which is why pregnant women preparing for labor learn special breathing techniques to face the pain of delivery. In the past year and a half of my life, I have learned the same to be true with emotional and mental pain. Right now your mind and body are under a great deal of stress and pain, please breathe intentionally.

Next I want to pray with you and over you. This letter isn't meant to have all the answers, but rather to meet you where you are in this moment and give you what you need: HOPE. I am living proof that there is a future after receiving a herpes diagnosis. Your life IS NOT OVER. It might not feel like there's a future, but I'll stand in the gap and believe for you. I've put together a special prayer in the E-File download below. Pray it over and over yourself and I will see you in the next Hope Letter.
