Why I Built A Website About Living With Genital Herpes

Hi. My name is Ed, and I decided to add this About Us page because people often ask who I am and how I came to build a website about living with genital herpes. They are often surprised to learn that creating this site has been a truly rewarding experience and sincerely a labor of love and joy.

First, please let me share a little of my background with you.

My personal experiences living with genital herpes began over 20 years ago when I was exposed and contracted the herpes simplex virus while in a monogamous relationship with a woman who didn’t tell me that she had herpes.

That’s right, like so many of us she took away my choice.

Over the years I have experienced almost every physical and emotional situation in regards to the genital herpes virus. But it wasn’t until the past few years that I began to take notice of the emotional harm the virus had on other people. People whom before being diagnosed, had the world by the tail and blazing a trail with their hair on fire! Those same people who were once extremely self-confident were now reduced to merely a shell of their prior self.

This saddened me greatly. So much so that I wanted to help people deal with the virus.

I joined a local herpes support group to meet and help other people. Then someone suggested that build a website.

Although I had thought of this before, I had absolutely no knowledge of how to do it. In short, my passion for helping people deal with herpes overcame my fears of creating a website and thus Living With Genital Herpes.org was born!

My beliefs in overcoming the emotional and physical affects of the virus is to give people with as much information as possible. 

In order to fight this virus you have to know everything that you can about it. You have to know its strengths. You have to know its weaknesses. It’s only then can you begin to exploit and take advantage of them and effectively fight the virus and win.

That’s why my website is loaded with free information. KNOWLEDGE IS POWER.

This website is providing you with the KNOWLEDGE and POWER. It’s up to you to use it!

Can I Ask A Small Favor?

If you found the genital herpes information on this website helpful, please pay it forward by sharing it with others. My purpose in building this site was to give people free access to information to help them fight the herpes simplex virus and shake the stigma. By pointing others to this site, you'll be helping them too.

Please send your friends and family a link to Living With Genital Herpes.org so they can benefit from the information too. Or, simply click on the "Share this page" buttons displayed at the bottom of most pages.

And if you own a website or a blog, you can easily refer people to my genital herpes website by adding a link. It takes only a moment or two, and your visitors will be ever so grateful. They will get to benefit from the information they find here, and they will return to your site knowing they can always count on you to provide them with helpful information.
