Girls, don't let your herpes cripple you mentally
If you just find that you are diagnosed with herpes or any other stds, you may be worrying that your life (or at least your love life) is ruined. Thinking too much about the virus will make you more anxious or depressed. Your mind is a powerful thing. And when traumatic or extremely confusing issues arise such as contracting an STD, there are a million thoughts running through your head as you try to figure out when, how, why? You can overwhelm yourself so much that your brain just shuts you down and you can put yourself into a deep depression at that point. It is then that you realize that you are no longer the same person and it is at that point the STD is in control of your life and not you. This is where building a positive attitude will breed a positive state of mind. And that positive state of mind is what will tell you everything is under your control the fact that you have an STD will not limit what you want to do.
The best tools to start with are to educate yourself about your STD, understand how it affects your body, is there a precautionary solution will help suppress the symptoms like a medication that might help alleviate noticeable symptoms so that they are not always fresh on your mind. All these will help you develop a peace of mind because you are actively taking control which in turn will help develop a positive attitude. Don't let your STD keep you from having the same state of mind you have always had right up till contracting the STD. Manage your STD mentally by being proactive in understanding it and learning to control it. And then get out there and enjoy the new experiences life has to offer that you would have otherwise missed out on if you had decide to let your STD mentally shut you down.
