So i just got my diagnosis yesterday. Its been very rough. My husband and i have been married for almost 15 years. We have 2 kids.
This past year, we decided to try the lifestyle. I admit it was a lot of fun. We went to parties and clubs and spent time at a resort. We always practiced safe sex and only had intimacy with a few couples.
However my doctor reminded me that i might have had this before i met my husband. Some people go decades without any symptoms.
My husband tested negative for it several months ago, and while i told my doctor to test me about the same time for "stds", he didnt include that one, citing that I had no symptoms. Um. Yeah. I still dont.
I know some of you reading this probably think I got what was coming, and on a very big level, I understand that, and agree.
But on another level, it still hurts. It is awful knowing that my husband and I can't be intimate the way we used to be. I am considering leaving him to let him have a chance at a normal sex life. We were so very close. I can't imagine our marriage bed now with condoms and limits.
I consider us young and attractive. He would have a good chance at someone without it.
I guess I just needed to send this message into the void and see if there are others living with this too.
I'd love to hear your take on things.
Thanks for listening.
Just an observation,Since all this talk of minors has popped up i've noticed people censoring themselves.I for one have been filling up rude words with little *'s etc.I've also been using words like "tom-foolery", and that's a good word to be using..
