I'd say dealing with the emotional aspect of having Herpes is probably a million times worse than any of the actual outbreaks I've dealt with outside of the initial one. Every time I hear a snide joke about it or see a shitty remark online somewhere I feel like it's been said to me personally- like someone is pointing a finger at me. I hate the lack of an awareness campaign, I hate having to mention directly after that statement that said awareness campaign should be about awareness- not fearmongering, I hate that I feel like there is no cure coming because of the social stigmas attached to this stupid virus (I am very aware that's probably not true and even a bit irrational but it doesn't stop me from feeling that way.)
