Husband gave me Herpes
I got married December 2009 and 3 months later in March 2010 I noticed a sore on my vagina. I went to the 2 different Dr.'s, got tested and the results came back positive for genital herpes. I informed my husband that he infected me and he was completely surprised because he said he didn't have it. Nonetheless, he got tested as well, and it came back positive. His Dr. informed him that he had it anywhere from 6 months to 1 year PRIOR to us being together. With that being said, he apologized and said that he didn't know he had it. I have been struggling with this for an entire year now and the stress, the burden and misery I feel, knowing that I have this "lifelong" STD has totally taken control of me. I finally told him that I wanted a divorce and he still says that he never knew (which could be possible, but I can't kill myself up trying to figure out if he did or not) and the minute I told him, I felt like a gray cloud had risen from my shoulders. Among other things in the marriage that I feel aren't working, I feel nothing but resentment towards him and honestly, do not want to be married to him anymore. I have not been able to focus mentally; I am unhappy and miserable; my sanity is just out of control; and a few people have noticed a change in me. With that being said, I feel that my health, sanity and peace of mind come before any job or relationship (no matter what type) and if I don't have any of those, then I am lost. Therefore, in order for me to feel at ease, not stressed over this disease, I don't feel that I can be with someone who gave me an STD; whether they knew or not. i can't handle it whatsoever and that is just me. Because I have been stressed beyond any words that can describe how I feel, I would get a break out EVERY MONTH!! To prevent that, I am on a daily regime of Valtrex and will not stop because I know I will continue to get monthly breakouts, which are NOT good at all. The amount of stress I have been under since finding out I got herpes causes these monthly breakouts. Hence, a divorce.
