well,... I honestly don't know where to start because there are so many
emotions in me pulling me 50 ways. I found out i have hepres 2. I know who I got infected by and I can't help but resent him. I look at him and it makes me sick at my stomach. I am so angry at him that i say some of the most hurtful things to him now. I don't know what to do anymore. I don't know if he and I will get past this together yet i'm scared that if I don't stay with him now I'll end up alone because no-one else is going to want a "tainted" woman.

If he told you ahead of time & it happened anyways it is a different story. But if he neglected to tell you, I think its going to be hard to forgive him and go forward with a healthy relationship.

You may end up being someone who doesn't really have any outbreaks past the initial one(s) in which case it really is manageable. You can get on prescription medication which will further reduce the risk of passing it to future partners.

It's definitely not true that no one else will want you, but dating with it certainly isn't as much fun. There are lots of online support groups if you live near a major city and even online dating websites for people in your situation.

Best of luck. There's a lot of us in the same situation...
